Description

  • Great product!
  • In Wild Swans Jung Chang recounts the evocative, unsettling, and insistently gripping story of how three generations of
    women in her family fared in the political maelstrom of China during the 20th century. Chang's grandmother was a
    warlord's concubine. Her gently raised mother struggled with hardships in the early days of Mao's revolution and rose,
    like her husband, to a prominent position in the Communist Party before being denounced during the Cultural Revolution.
    Chang herself marched, worked, and breathed for Mao until doubt crept in over the excesses of his policies and purges.
    Born just a few decades apart, their lives overlap with the end of the warlords' regime and overthrow of the Japanese
    occupation, violent struggles between the Kuomintang and the Communists to carve up China, and, most poignant for the
    author, the vicious cycle of purges orchestrated by Chairman Mao that discredited and crushed millions of people,
    including her parents.
