Cultural Writing. Jewish Studies. Asian Studies. MY CHINA EYE is the memoir of journalist, author, war correspondent and eye-witness to history, Israel Epstein. Spanning over eighty years of the author's life, this memoir offers a dramatic and highly personal account of coming-of-age amid groundbreaking social change during the most turbulent years of the Twentieth century. It is also one of the most revealing narratives by a Western journalist of the Chinese Communist Revolution, from its beginnings to the heights of its power. Despite a profound commitment to the Communist state, Epstein was incarcerated by Red Guards under the regime of the Gang of Four, and his faith was severely challenged. Yet, despite such hardships, he remained devoted to the society and the people whose monumental struggles had so profoundly affected his life.
