Seattle, WA (PRWEB) January 29, 2015
The Chinese Revolution of the1900s started a group of revolutionaries in southern China, which led a successful revolt against the Qing Dynasty, establishing in its place the Republic of China and ending the imperial system. Dr. Jianxin Huang holds nothing back with his new book covering historical and lifestyle topics such as social, economic and political changes during this time in China.
Huang’s new book, “A Humble Hero,” presents a view of the original, authentic and unvarnished China, its people, culture and traditions, which are very different from what people learn from most books and other media.
“A Humble Hero” is a story of the twentieth-century China, surrounding Huang’s grandfather, a legendary figure of a grassroots Chinese farmer, and the drastic social, economic and political changes that occurred in China during the 1900s.
“He inherited a huge amount of debt,” said Huang. “Despite drastic regime changes, Japanese invasion, civil war, land reforms, widespread starvation, the upheavals of the communist and cultural revolutions and their dreadful political and economic consequences, he held on to Chinese traditions all his life.”
Huang believes some of the dramatic historical and cultural events and information in this book were never recorded and he wants to help portray the grassroots farmers as the backbone of the culture, tradition and society. He establishes a presence of today’s Chinese culture versus the 1900s Chinese culture, how things have changed and stayed the same.
