Chen Village, the enthralling account of a Chinese village in the throes of the Maoist revolution, has become a modern classic. Now the authors have returned to Chen Village to bring the village's tumultuous story up to the nineties. Chen Village Under Mao and Deng includes not only the bulk of the original text of Chen Village, but also three new chapters on village life under Deng: gripping descriptions of the village leader's purge, the rapid industrialization of the district, an alienated "lost generation" of young peasants, and the new village officials' legal and illegal efforts at self-enrichment. Readers who enjoyed Chen Village will be doubly fascinated by the ironic twists and turns of recent events among the Chens.

Review:

"[Depicts] in rich detail the background against which reforms are being carried out. . . . The authors of Chen Village vividly bring to life the effect of the Chinese Communist Party's constantly changing policies on the villagers." -- Merle Goldman, New York Times
