Few books have had such an impact as Wild Swans: a popular bestseller which has sold more than 13 million copies and a critically acclaimed history of China; a tragic tale of nightmarish cruelty and an uplifting story of bravery and survival. Through the story of three generations of women in her own family - the grandmother given to the warlord as a concubine, the Communist mother and the daughter herself - Jung Chang reveals the epic history of China's twentieth century. Breathtaking in its scope, unforgettable in its descriptions, this is a masterpiece which is extraordinary in every way.

Wild Swans - Three Daughters of China
Detailed yet very readable true story of three generations of women and how the Communist and Cultural Revolutions in China during the late 1940' through the 1970's affected their lives and their families. I would like to read another book by Jung Chang.

Chinese young women
Excellent for those who love history and would enjoy the revelations of the power that women can weld.

Really good story
I learned much from this book about growing up during three eras in China. It was so well written that I will now read this author's book on Mao.
I highly recommend this book.

Read this book!
This historical retrospective records the lives of three generations of Jung Chang's family. It documents the Chinese Revolution and Mao's dysfunctional dictatorship. With China's impending rise to world dominance, this important work is a must read.
