I think I need a quiet holiday to tackle this one (and some secondary literature). There are intricate family trees to be followed with unfamiliar names , a long timeline of events and it's about a country I know nothing about!

A beautifully written account of 20th century China. It gives insight into a different culture, people''s perceptions and conventions and a completely different way of thinking and self-image. Fascinating.

I''ve sent the book on to Ardachy August 2007.

A powerful and gripping family history which gives a fascinating insight into life in China during the hundred years up to 1978. Highly recommended to anyone with an interest in History, Politics, China or human behavior.
