Old Shanghai and the Clash of Revolution

Synopsis

Life in Shanghai played out against a backdrop of shifting political maneuvers until World War II burned off the patina that had made ''Old Shanghai'' a world unto itself. In this personal history we follow one man through Japan's conquest of Shanghai in 1937 to the Chinese civil war and Communist takeover, Mao's desperate attempts to modernize a medieval country and Deng Xiaoping's opening the economy but not social freedoms. The protagonist lees burgeoning corruption and makes it to the United States to see for himself what the tales of freedom and democracy might offer."
