Description
 
A justly celebrated, masterly, first hand account of China in the middle of the 20th cent. by one of France’s most brilliant post-war writers. Simone de Beauvoir, author of “The Second Sex,” garrulous intellectual, novelist, existentialist, describes China at a period of enormous transition from a democratic to a socialist revolution. Writing in the 1950s, she attacks the “bourgeois democracies” which wanted to keep the People’s Rep. of China a pariah state. And she emphasizes the subjects which she holds  dear -- birth control, female emancipation & the great educational programs which were forced on the Chinese peasantry. Her observations make stirring reading & provide a brilliant & accessible introduction to the people & cultures of modern China.
