I was forced to read the book Son of the Revolution for a twentith century history call. It a first person biography of a man who grew up in China living throught the Revolution of Flowners and was young teen in the Cultural Revolution. It is a great read and goes through some of the craziness that today's China grew out of. It ends in the middle of the 80s'. Awsome book. The parts about the Cultural Revolution are amazing and give an inperson account of what happened when the kids were in control of the revolution.
Have fun, Jan
