Were it not for Soong’s determination to give his daughters a thoroughly Western education and Sun’s attraction to westernized women, the last 100 years of Chinese history might have turned out very differently.

Hotjar sets this cookie to know whether a user is included in the data sampling defined by the site's daily session limit. Big Sister, Little Sister, Red Sister: Three Women at the Heart of Twentieth-Century China by Jung Chang, was a sweeping and gripping account of the Soong family of Shanghai, not only of these three sisters that played a large part in the shaping of the history of China in the twentieth century, but it also tells about their three brothers, each making history in their own right, as part of the inner circle of the Chiang Kai-shek regime. This led to at least one near-death experience, when Qingling was trapped in a military attack by one of Sun’s rivals. Big Sister, Little Sister, Red Sister , written in a compulsive style that sweeps the story along, is much the fullest account of their remarkable lives available in English… The sisters make a great story told with considerable sympathy for them .During the last three decades of her life she held an honored role in Red China as Vice-Chairman under Mao Ze-dong and Deng Tsiao-peng. Indeed, if the Soong sisters had not actually existed, the story of their operatic lives, had it been conjured in fiction, would surely have been branded by censors as salacious spiritual pollution. For more than a decade he struggled with opponents within the Nationalist Party (which he did not found) to gain the presidency. I’m not normally a great fan of non-fiction, especially political tales, however this riveting biography is so well written it at no time becomes weighed down.

She brought a cheering Congress to tears; she drew tens of thousands to her public lectures; Time magazine named her and Chiang “Man and Wife of the Year”. While the book is fairly positive on this family you see the Soong's and Kung’s helping themselves to public funds.Sekembalinya mereka ke Cina, 2 diantaranya bekerja pd Dr Sun dan salah satunya jatuh cinta dan memutuskan kawin lari.
