Under her the ancient country attained virtually all the attributes of a modern state: industries, railways, electricity, the telegraph and an army and navy with up-to-date weaponry. It was she who abolished gruesome punishments like "death by a thousand cuts" and put an end to foot-binding. She inaugurated women's liberation and embarked on the path to introduce parliamentary elections to China. Chang comprehensively overturns the conventional view of Cixi as a diehard conservative and cruel despot. Cixi reigned during extraordinary times and had to deal with a host of major national crises: the Taiping and Boxer rebellions, wars with France and Japan--and an invasion by eight allied powers including Britain, Germany, Russia and the United States. Jung Chang not only records the Empress Dowager's conduct of domestic and foreign affairs, but also takes the reader into the depths of her splendid Summer Palace and the harem of Beijing's Forbidden City, where she lived surrounded by eunuchs--one of whom she fell in love, with tragic consequences. The world Chang describes here, in fascinating detail, seems almost unbelievable in its extraordinary mixture of the very old and the very new. Based on newly available, mostly Chinese, historical documents such as court records, official and private correspondence, diaries and eyewitness accounts, this biography will revolutionize historical thinking about a crucial period in China's--and the world's--history. Packed with drama, fast paced and gripping, it is both a panoramic depiction of the birth of modern China and an intimate portrait of a woman: as the concubine to a monarch, as the absolute ruler of a third of the world's population, and as a unique stateswoman." -- Publisher's description4457ocn014361054book19860.31Chang, JungMme Sun Yat-Sen (Soong Ching-ling)Biography43362ocn025709549book19000.23Chang, JungWild swans : three daughters of ChinaHistoryBiographyFictionA history of twentieth century China told as a real-life saga of a Chinese family over three generations+-+874928155532437525ocn066411669book20050.24Chang, JungMao : het onbekende verhaalBiographyKritische biografie van de Chinese leider (1893-1976)+-+69795225241674ocn063136005rcrd20060.13Chang, JungMao [the unknown story]BiographyBased on a decade of research and on interviews with many of Mao's close circle in China who have never talked before--and with virtually everyone outside China who had significant dealings with him--this is the most authoritative life of Mao ever written.

Empress Dowager Cixi led an intense and singular life. Chosen at the age of twelve to be a concubine by the Emperor Xianfeng, she gives birth to his only male heir, who at four years old is designated emperor when his father dies in 1861. Enlisting the help of Xianfeng's widow, Cixi orchestrates a coup that ousts the appointed regents and makes herself the regent on behalf of her son. Her son ends up dying in his mid-twenties and Cixi is able to designate a young nephew as the emperor--continuing her reign, which stretches to her death in 1908. In this remarkable chronicle, Chang gives us a portrait of Cixi that is complex and riveting: her ruthlessness in fighting off rivals; her startling curiosity to learn all she can, not only about China (she is not allowed to leave the court compound); her reliance on her advisers and officials, often Westerners who she has placed in key positions of responsibility; and her sensitivity and desire to preserve the distinctiveness of China's past. Chang makes a compelling case that Cixi was one of the most formidable--and enlightened--rulers of a nation415033ocn023940391book19910.23Chang, JungWild swans : three daughters of ChinaHistoryBiographyFictionTells the story of three women--Jung Chang, her mother, and her grandmother--whose lives and fortunes mirror the tumultuous twentieth century in China+-+82907903852029ocn044616443rcrd19910.15Chang, JungWild swans Three daughters of ChinaHistoryBiographyPersonal narrativesCondensed books"This is the story of three generations of women in a Chinese family and mirrors the tumultuous history of twentieth-century China. Jung Chang's grandmother was born into the feudal China of 1909. Her feet were bound and at the age of 15 she was given to a warlord general as a concubine. Her daughter grew up in occupied Manchuria and became active in the underground Nationalist movement.

Author Jung Chang's grandmother was born into a still feudal society, had her feet bound, and at the age of fifteen became a warlord's concubine. Her daughter, Jung Changs's mother, became a guerrilla fighter against the Chiang Kai-shek regime and rose to high rank after the Communist Party victory. She and her husband later became victims of the Cultural Revolution. They were sent to labor camps where they endured great hardship. Jung Chang spent a childhood in the privileged circle of the communist elite. She briefly became a Red Guard as did most of her contemporaries. As a young student she worshiped Mao until the excesses of the revolution were brought home. After her whole family was denounced, she was exiled to the Himalayas. Leaving the country in 1958 to study in England, she never returned. The film recounts the family history interwoven with archival and contemporary footage. Her mother's visit in 1990 unleashed a flood of memories and revealed information that became the basis for her best-selling book, Wild Swans. In the tradition of Amy Tan, Jung Chang shows how individual lives are transformed by historical forces.
