About This Book:

China is a nation of poetry. Since the Classic of Poetry (Shih Jing, also known as the Book of Songs) -- a collection of 305 works dating from the 11th to 7th centuries BC -- Chinese poets have been documenting the political, economic, social and cultural events across their homeland in lyrics. Many of these poetic writings contain direct or subtle criticism against tyrannic and/or corrupt governments and the harm these have caused to the lives of common folks. Throughout the country's history, numerous Chinese poets have been punished, exiled, imprisoned, tortured and even executed as a result of their open and fearless attack against the evil dictators of their times.

In China of the 20th Century in Classic Chinese Poetry, Jiang Hoo provides a passionate yet honest portrayal of the country he loves. It remains unknown whether readers will agree to his view of the Chinese Communist Party and the impact of its rule on all Chinese people since 1949. However, there is no doubt that this collection of classic Chinese poems presents a complete, chronological and continuous observation of a country that was and is still in turmoil as it aspires to become a superpower.
