Return to the Middle Kingdom: One Family, Three Revolutionaries, and the Birth of Modern China

Yuan-Tsung Chen, Author . Sterling/Union Square $24.95 (401p) ISBN 978-1-4027-5697-9

The rise of modern China serves as a backdrop for Chen's engrossing saga of her late husband Jack's family. In three generations the Chens journeyed in the 1860s from China to Trinidad, later to London, and back to China, rising from landless peasant to revolutionary, from aide to China's first president, Sun Yat-sen, to editorial cartoonist. The intimate, often harrowing details of Chen's (The Dragon's Village ) potent narrative, which includes revolutions, political turmoil and warfare, present a vivid panorama of the people behind China's development. B&w photos. (June)
