Chinese lives : an oral history of contemporary China by Xinxin Zhang( Book )

22 editions published between 1987 and 1989 in English and held by 1,264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over sixty startling voices--voices of ordinary people, talking about the ordinary and extraordinary events in their lives--make up this remarkable book, the first of its kind ever to come from China. A sixty-four-year-old woman, a former prostitute sold to a brothel in Shanghai at fourteen, tells of the thousands of men she has slept with. A thirteen-year-old boy chats as he sells popcorn on the sidewalk. A prison guard talks of his work, followed by the prisoner he's guarding--convicted for raping and murdering his sister. an elderly hairdresser recounts how he could always tell when trouble was coming because "all the educated people stopped having their hair done right away!" A bookseller describes regularly pulping his stock as political fashions in literature change. A hitchhiking hippie, an enterprising restaurateur, a pop singer, a bus conductor: these are the people Zhang Xinxin and Sang Ye, two Chinese journalists, encountered as they traveled the breadth of their country. Their interviews take us into worlds Westerners could never penetrate, and offer the sorts of frank, informal conversations you'd hear on a train, in a waiting room, on a bus or while shopping. The cultural Revolution, the Great Leap Forward, student activism, purges, and economic upheaval--all the expected "events" of recent Chinese history are there, but witnessed through the lens of everyday life

The tyranny of history : the roots of China's crisis by W. J. F Jenner( Book )

20 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and held by 682 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over a quarter of the human race lives within the borders of China, the empire that has outlasted all its rivals from the Roman to the British. But, claims the author of this sweeping and provocative study, the Chinese empire is in terminal crisis, a crisis that goes much deeper than the decline of the current regime and threatens the survival both of China as a unified state and of the high tradition and culture that span more than three thousand years.

"Sanmao was a little boy with no mother or father who had to look after himself in the cruel world of Shanghai in the old days. In real life many boys and girls like Sanmao died in the streets from hunger or illness. Sanmao was a survivor. Despite all the hardships he always found a way of carrying on ... These cartoons, which are some of the best known and best loved in China, were first published from 1947 onwards during the dark years of civil war that followed the Japanese surrender in 1945 and ended when the People's Liberation Army entered the city in the spring of 1949. Since then Sanmao has been a household name in China, and his adventures have also been turned into a film."--Introduction
