Description

Le signore di Shanghai" sono le tre sorelle Ei-ling, Ching-ling e May-ling, che hanno trasformato la Cina. Kekurangan buku ini mungkin akan menyebabkan kesulitan bagi awam yg gak mengikuti sejarah Cina di awal abad 20 yg super chaotic, krn sejak kejatuhan Dinasti Qing, Cina otomatis ambruk di segala bidang, politik, ekonomi, sosial yg semuanya sangat parah.

In Chang’s account, Qingling is the least appealing: a hard-headed Comintern convert, whose political convictions overrode feelings for her family. Seagrave also wrote a bio on the infamous Empress Dowager Cixi/Tzu Hsi Dragon Lady: The Life and Legend of the Last Empress of China which I also read and enjoyed. The three sisters’s father, Soong Charlie, grew up poor but gained the advantage of a missionary education. Meet the three women who helped shape the course of modern Chinese history; a gripping story of sisterhood and betrayal from the bestselling author of Wild Swans.I wish the focus is more on the sisters right from the start because that last 100 pages was really interesting on how the sisters were being manipulative, empowering and they did play significant roles in China history. Jung Chang brings the early twentieth century to life as she explores the world of Sun Yat-sen and Chiang Kai-Shek.

Born in China, she lives in London with her husband, Jon Halliday, her coauthor on two of those books.Together, these three extraordinary women helped shape the destiny of the world’s most populous nation from the closing days of the Manchu dynasty to the dawn of China’s ascension into a superpower. There is a longer list of supporting characters like Charlie Soong and Chou En Lai, but the focus of this book is on the three sisters; thus, the men who complete the picture of the rebirth of a nation. Publication dates are subject to change (although this is an extremely uncommon occurrence overall). Written in a very readable prose, this book captured the lives of the Soong sisters, Big sister, Red sister and Little sister, each of them making served their positions as women who help to shape China as it is. Córki poczciwego kaznodziei o imieniu Charlie, który bardziej przesiąknął kulturą Stanów Zjednoczonych niż Chin.
