Front Cover
Knopf, 1988 - Social Science - 309 pages
This book is the compilation of information gleaned from extensive interviews conducted by the author in 1979 and again in 1984, including hundreds of Chinese children. Singly and in groups, in school, at play, and at home, she talked with boys and girls ranging in age from six to sixteen, from many different backgrounds, and of startlingly different attitudes. The resulting book provides a rich understanding of the childhood experience in contemporary China.
