A Lifetime in Recovery From the Cultural Revolution – Howard French

22Fpro184 From The New York Times:

Sometimes a single life can tell more about a country's experience than a shelfful of history books. Many Chinese of a certain age have such lives - rich in struggle, in suffering, in the consequences of man's folly, but often enough, too, in a measure of redemption.

"I knew nothing about the United States, but I knew that if you wanted to learn science, the U.S. was the place."


These are people today in their 40's whose transition to adulthood was hijacked by the Cultural Revolution.
