Blood Red Sunset: A Memoir of the Chinese Cultural Revolutionby Ma Bo
In a startlingly vivid, strangely objective, personal narrative, Ma Bo, who was denounced as an "active counterrevolutionary" in 1968, opens a window on the Chinese psyche that no work of history can provide, telling a passionate tale of a humanity that survives against all odds--a tale of ideology and disillusionment that will speak to all readers.

A good book about a teenager and his friends going around and robbing from farmers and other people. It provides good images of fights and the jail he had to stay in after being arrested for being an 'active counterrevolutionary'. I liked this book after I read it even though I thought I wouldn't before I started.
