Great insight into the Chinese cultural revolution.

This was interesting, very easy to follow, and has some emotional events that take place. It is interesting to see how strong Ling is in the situations that she encounters. A quick read and well worth it.

"Certain to inspire discussion about freedom and justice." Yes, as for those beautiful pastries and flower stitched clothes: Which peasant under feudal china could afford anything else except mudpies and the little rice that the land owning lords left for them? The Chinese revolution and subsequent cultural revolution is one of the most amazing developments in human history. The first time that the majority of working people rose up and attacked all things contrary to their class interest, symbolic of their thousands of years of silent indignation and subordination to kings, royals, monarchs, masters and capitalists. It is too bad that human society developed into classes as a result of undereducation and animal instincts, but at the rare revolutionary moments of history when the systemically suppressed masses rise up and demanding before their bourgeois rights of freedom of criticism and freedom to exploit, the right to self-determination of labor, production of all working people and the freedom to partake in society and its riches, created by themselves.
