I do some work for the publishing house that actually bought the rights to this book (not Sichuan People's Press, they are a just state-owned publishing partner).
The company bought the rights to the book about a year ago, I think shortly after they were sold in Taiwan. The project was sent "upstairs" for approval, which was swiftly denied. There things stayed until the Peace Price win – if the book weren't released, the government would start looking pretty bad. It's already imprisoned one Peace Prize winner, censoring another would be hard to explain…

Not to mention that other Nobel Peace Prize Winner -- the Tibetan bloke -- that China tries to ensure never meets with other laureates at venues in South Africa, etc.
