BeschreibungPraise for the first edition:
..". in the greattradition of Orwell and Solzhenitsyn; its true subject is the survival -- andsometimes the defeat -- of the human spirit in its lonely quest for integrity."-- Time
"The almost childlike directness of Chen's tales... iscaptured in the very lightly revised translations of this new edition... Highlyrecommended." -- Choice
A classic of modern world literature, thiscollection of stories provides a vivid and poignant eyewitness view of everyday lifein China during the Cultural Revolution. For this edition, Howard Goldblatt hasthoroughly revised the text and updated it to Pinyin romanization. In a newintroduction, Perry Link reflects on the book's significance in the post-Tiananmenera. Twenty-five years after its first publication, The Execution of Mayor Yin haslost none of its power to move the reader, and remains unmatched as a document ofthe period.
