Mao’s Lost Children: Stories Of The Rusticated Youth Of China's Cultural Revolution

  • Arts C175 Global Studies Resource Centre University of Sussex Falmer BN1 9RH (map)

Join us for discussion and nibbles at the launch of a fascinating new collection of memoirs written by more than fifty Chinese who as young people during the rule of Mao Zedong were rusticated to Hainan Island to clear the jungle for rubber plantations. Their unique, first-hand insights into this turbulent period of China’s recent history are also a moving testimony to the indomitable nature of the human spirit.

Laura Maynard, Andrew Crisell, Professor Magnus Marsden and Maurizio Marinelli

This event is co-sponsored by the Sussex Asia Centre.
