Synopsis: Author of The Second Sex, and one of the 20th century's most brilliant writers, Simone de Beauvoir turns her attention eastward to China and paints a masterly picture of that nation in modern times. Honest and detailed, it comes from de Beauvoir's personal journey through the country: "I have tried to evaluate all the knowledge gained at first-hand, by actually seeing places and talking with people," she said, poignantly, noting how the Chinese "are fighting hard to build a human world." Invaluable.

About the Author: Simone Lucie-Ernestine-Marie-Bertrand de Beauvoir was born in 1908. She was a French writer and feminist, a member of the intellectual fellowship of philosopher-writers who have given a literary transcription to the themes of Existentialism. She is known primarily for her treatise Le Deuxieme Sexe, 2 vol (The Second Sex) a scholarly and passionate plea for the abolition of what she called the myth of the 'eternal feminine.' This seminal work became a classic of feminist literature. Schooled in private institutions, de Beauvoir attended the Sorbonne, where, in 1929, she passed her agregation in philosophy and met Jean-Paul Sartre, beginning a lifelong association with him. Her novels expound the major Existential themes, demonstrating her conception of the writer's commitment to the times, in addition to treating feminist issues, de Beauvoir was concerned with the issue of ageing, which she addressed in Une Mort tres douce (1964; A Very Easy Death). She died in 1986.
