If you'd like to learn about Chinese history and culture from the early 1900's through the rise of communism to life under communism up to 1978 told from a woman's point of view, then I highly recommend this engrossing book written by Jung Chang. It's told as a family memoir of her grandmother's, mother's and her life and it brings a clarity to what it was like to live under Mao's rule that I know will make visiting China much more meaningful.
