About This Item

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1990. Stated First Edition. Hardcover. Green Boards with Gilt Lettering on Spine. Original, Excellent Condition/very good.
Bette Bao Lord (1938 - ) is a Chinese-born American writer and civic activist for human rights and democracy. Born in China and raised in the U.S., Betty Bao Lord explores her dual identity through novels and nonfiction acknowledging both her Asian and her American sides as integral parts of one self. In this respect, perhaps, she differs from slightly younger contemporaries who have sought to give voice more directly to ethnic and gender concerns. Bette Bao Lord and her husband Ambassador Winston Lord were posted to Beijing from November 1985 through mid-April 1989; during the weeks of pro-democracy demonstrations that spring, Mrs. Lord served as a consultant to CBS News. It was here that Lord presided over a sort of salon at the embassy, attracting large numbers of artists and intellectuals eager to share their stories of life during the Cultural Revolution. These accounts became the foundation of Legacies: A Chinese Mosaic (1990). Published soon after the 1989 student uprising in Tiananmen Square, the book weaves together these histories with stories of Lord's own extended family.
245pp. DJ not clipped, no inscriptions, as new throughout.
