Literally it means "to turn the body." This is the story of how the peasants of Long Bow Village built a new world.
A vivid and compelling 'grass-roots' account of life in the village precisely during the period in which the new Communist power was establishing itself. . . . [A] unique contribution to our understanding of life in a northern Chinese village on the eve of the Communist takeover.-Benjamin Schwartz,New York Times Book Review
Fanshen is an extraordinary book. It will dispose of many myths, both those of the Left and of the Right.-C. P. Fitzgerald,The Nation
Fanshen is an important book. . . . It is an arresting narrative [on] the agonizing story of rural China in turmoil…told with a remarkable evenness of temper and a rare understanding of human weaknesses and strengths. The lessons of Long Bow village, so movingly and compassionately recorded…should be studied and restudied by all.-C. T. Hsu,Saturday Review
