I recently finished a book that Reena purchased called Out of Mao’s Shadow by Phillip P. Pan. It is a remarkable book about various people who take a stand against injustice in China despite incredible risks posed to them by the ruling Communist Party. It will give anyone interested in China a great look at what it is really like to live there. It looks at current life there but China’s frightening past is certainly part of the story. It is an enjoyable, instructive inspirational yet disturbing read.
You’ll find interviews of the author by Jon Stewart and Charlie Rose on the website.
