Productbeschrijving

The 1949 Communist Revolution marked a period of earthshaking change in China. Political, economic, ideological, and cultural movements set into motion came to galvanize the country, culminating in dramatic social transformations at all levels but also in the persecution of hundreds of thousands of the country's citizens. Based on normally inaccessible records of confessions, interrogations, trial transcripts, and depositions, Eight Outcasts tells the stories of eight victims of the Maoist dictatorship. It introduces readers to individuals accused of infractions such as corruption, political wrong thoughts, homosexuality, illicit sexual activity, foreign ties, or historical problems (connections to the former Kuomintang regime) in the period between the revolution and Mao's death in 1976. Each chapter brings stories of China's voiceless citizens to light, broadening our knowledge of this important transitional period.
