    Remember the wild ride of the People's Republic

    `China Remembers¿ by Zhang Lijia and Calum MacLeod groups 33 contributions from Chinese and foreign residents in China, arranged to give insight into the history of the People¿s Republic and leavened with introductions to guide the reader through the complexities of its political campaigns. It is hard to imagine an editorial team better equipped for the task. Zhang Lijia¿s metamorphosis from Nanjing factory worker to freelance writer itself reflects China¿s heady leap from planned economy to sink-or-swim capitalism. Calum MacLeod, who I have counted a friend since we shared a mouldy hotel room in Xi¿an in 1989, earns his living bridging the gap between international investors and newly corporate China. The testimonies this Anglo-Chinese joint venture couple have gathered come as an antidote to the efforts by Mao Zedong and his communist comrades to force the world¿s most populous nation to march to a single beat. China Remembers bursts with human contradictions and surprises a world away from the tyranny of Marxist class truths.
