Book summary: The Long March

1957 BY SIMONE DE BEAUVOIR

Author of The Second Sex, and one of the 20th century's most brilliant writers, Simone de Beauvoir turns her attention eastward to China and paints a masterly picture of that nation in modern times. Honest and detailed, it comes from de Beauvoir's personal journey through the country: "I have tried to evaluate all the knowledge gained at first-hand, by actually seeing places and talking with people," she said, poignantly, noting how the Chinese "are fighting hard to build a human world." Invaluable.
