Zone

1. See: Free trade zone.

This helps prevents sales reps from competing with each other for commissions.

In Kong's reading, The Crazed presents Tiananmen Square as a "spatial aporia" in that the student protagonist, Jian Wan, never manages to quite reach the Square as the military crackdown descends on it and surrounding areas, remaining caught up in a peripheral zone by army violence and then compelled to flee to save himself; collaterally, in this psychologized, if not consistently psychoanalytical reading, Ha Jin himself also experiences the Square as a place beyond his direct experience, but one that he seeks to protect from, in his own words, "historical amnesia" (qtd.
