About This Item

New York: John Wiley & Sons, 2000. Trade Paperback. First Paperback Edition / full number line. Fine. Interior pristine. Spine straight, tight and uncreased. Covers clean. Slight rubbing and corner wear. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. x + 349 pages.

Now in paperback, here is the stunning true tale of a remarkable woman trained as an elite soldier in the Chinese army, her forbidden love for an American, and her seemingly impossible escape--with his help--from the nation to which she had pledged her life. An astonishing testament to the enduring resilience of love and the human spirit in the face of even the most oppressive, hopeless conditions, Daughter of China offers a compelling look at life inside the rigid walls of Communist China, revealing in fascinating detail Meihong Xu's inculcation into the system--a process so effective that she would willingly betray a friend or family member to prove her loyalty. Written with clear-eyed candor and stark eloquence, Daughter of China is at once a timeless, deeply moving story of a prohibited love affair and a dramatic depiction of life under Chinese Communism.
