Great Read: Wild Swans: 3 Daughters of China

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.
