A new edition of Victor Serge's life story gives Sheila Fitzpatrick fresh reasons to Author: Sheila Fitzpatrick.

This sweeping, eighty-year memoir is the last work of veteran journalist Israel Epstein (), one of the very few Western writers to experience the Chinese Communist Revolution firsthand.

Born in Poland and raised in China, Epstein served as a war correspondent from the front lines of the Chinese War of Resistance against Japan, as well as during the Communist-Nationalist struggle. Although the memoir can trace history back as far as St.

Augustine and his Confessions, I decided to focus this list around contemporary books – those written within the last years, with a pretty heavy skew towards those from the last 20 years.

If you’re curious about the history and evolution of the memoirs genre, I can’t recommend Memoir: A History by Ben Yagoda : Kim Ukura.BEIJING — Yang Jiang, a Chinese author, playwright, and translator whose stoically restrained memoir of the Cultural Revolution remains one of the most revered works about that period, died on.

Official archives are off-limits. Serious books on the period, whether comprehensive histories, in-depth analyses, or detailed personal memoirs, are remarkably few.

Ji Xianlin’s The Cowshed: Memories of the Chinese Cultural Revolution, which has just been released in English for the first time, is something of an anomaly.
