Man's Fateby Andre Malraux
As explosive and immediate today as when it was originally published in 1933, Man's Fate (La Condition Humaine), an account of a crucial episode in the early days of the Chinese Revolution, foreshadows the contemporary world and brings to life the profound meaning of the revolutionary impulse for the individuals involved. As a study of conspiracy and conspirators, of men caught in the desperate clash of ideologies, betrayal, expediency, and free will, Andre Malraux's novel remains unequaled.

Although the Chinese Revolution happened many years ago, this book brings you the human experience of revolution and in many respects a glimpse into the evolution of Chinese culture. The author does justice to the Chinese revolution by channeling you into the very heart of any revolution - the people.
