Jung Chang

http://www.thenewagenda.net/2011/02/13/jung-chang-writes-about-communist-china/

I had read most of Wild Swans. It is a great and well-written book. I recommend it for learning about Chinese history because it encompasses quite a lot. The political/cultural/social shift between Jung Chang's generation and her grandmother's generation is dramatic and alarming. Unfortunately, I could not get past the part where her father was taken.
