I learned so much about China reading this book. Our American history classes never covered anything about China or the Communist revolution there so it was all so new - and frequently terrible. This is one of the few books that actually made me cry.

An amazing book. I read it in Spanish in 1985 first, then again in English in the late 90s, and recently for the third time; as I now live in China.
This book was the answer to many of my questions about the Chinese people and their culture.
And yes, I cried at the end.
