9780295994925: Daughter of Good Fortune: A Twentieth-Century Chinese Peasant Memoir

Daughter of Good Fortune tells the story of Chen Huiqin and her family through the tumultuous 20th century in China. She witnessed the Japanese occupation during World War II, the Communist Revolution in 1949 and its ensuing Land Reform, the Great Leap Forward, the Cultural Revolution, and the Reform Era. Chen was born into a subsistence farming family, became a factory worker, and lived through her village's relocation to make way for economic development. Her family's story of urbanization is representative of hundreds of millions of rural Chinese.

About the Author:

Chen Huiqin was born in 1931 in Wang Family Village, in Jiading Country near Shanghai, and now lives on her ancestral land. Shehong Chen is associate professor of history at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell. She is the author of Being Chinese, Becoming Chinese American. Delia Davin is emeritus professor of Chinese studies at the University of Leeds. She is the author of Woman Work: Women and the Party in Revolutionary China.

Review:

A faithful and meticulous transcription of her mother's narrative. . . She has done a great service not only to Chen Huiqin, but also to readers who would like to understand the transformation of village life currently underway in China.

--Richard King "Pacific Affairs "
