Her husband was one of the first Western correspondents to work there since the cultural revolution; Lois explored its back streets on a bicycle, shopped in its markets and talked to the people wherever she went. This is a book, not about politics, but about families and their attitudes towards sex, children, old people and work. She witnessed several historic events and it was the details of individual behaviour and Chinese reaction that she always noted. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.
