Book Description:

This new translation of the autobiography of Xie Bingying (1906-2000)―an important Chinese feminist, pioneering "girl soldier," and skilled writer―provides a fascinating portrayal of a woman fighting to free herself from the constraints of ancient Chinese tradition in the context of the dramatic changes that shook China during the 1920s, '30s, and '40s. Her personal struggle to define herself within the larger context of political change is a poignant testament of determination and a striking story of one woman's journey from Old China into the new world.
