Description
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This week, we look at fascinating, complex China through the eyes of the
always outspoken and penetrating writer, Jan Wong, whose life has been
intertwined with that country's history since the 1970's. She talks about
her search there for a woman she denounced thirty years ago when she was
a Maoist and her discovery of a new China that is rich, powerful, and
increasingly ambitious about its global role.

Although China is still a one party state, you'd be forgiven if you traveled
there and didn't realize it had ever been run by the Communists.Cities like
Beijing and Shanghai, in particular, now seem like monuments to
entrepreneurialism and capitalism.The 2008 Olympics in Beijing next year, is
often described as China's giant "coming out party", a celebration of its
booming economy, and its transformation into a modern world power. the
government there is being very careful that nothing spoil the party. So it
hasn't enjoyed international media coverage of the recent scandals over toxic
Chinese exports, like toys, toothpaste and food... about alarming pollution
in big cities and the criticism over human rights abuses inside the country,
as well as the propping up of corrupt governments like Sudan, which is
supporting genocide in Darfur.

Jan Wong knows the good and bad of China. She has lived there through some
of the toughest times, the Cultural Revolution, the Tiananmen massacre of 1989,
and she's also seen the joyous leap in the 1990's of so many Chinese people
toward perhaps the highest living standards in their history. She has recorded
this transition in numerous best selling books, always vivid in their
analysis, but also funny and with a nuanced understanding of Chinese society
as it really is.

Brian was glad to sit down with her recently and hear about her latest
journey to China last summer and the book she produced. Her quest this time
was to find a woman she had gone to school with in Beijing in the 1970's and
whom Wong had, in her youthful ideological fervour, denounced to school
authorities because the girl just wanted to see the United States.Jan Wong
went back thirty years later to find out what happened to her and see if she
too has shared in the Chinese economic miracle...
