Description
Ji-li Jiang was twelve years old in 1966, the year that Chairman Mao launched the Cultural Revolution in China. An outstanding student and much-admired leader of her class, Ji-li seemed poised for a shining future. But all of that changed with the advent of the Cultural Revolution, when intelligence became a crime and a wealthy family background invited persecution -- or worse. For the next three years, Ji-li and her family were humilated and reviled by their former friends, neighbors, and colleagues and lived in constant terror of attack. At last, with the detention of her father, Ji-li was faced with the most dreadful decision of her young life: denounce him and break with her family, or refuse to testify and sacrifice her future in her beloved Communist Party.<P>Told with simplicity, innocence, and grace, this unforgettable memoir gives a child's eye view of a terrifying time in twentieth century history -- and of one family's indomitable courage under fire.
