Product Overview

The Scholar and the Tiger is at once a compelling family saga, thriller, social history, and spiritual journey. Written by a noted scholar, assisted by a writer friend, the story brings to life a tumultuous period in Chinese history while providing insights into China''s emergence as a global power. Wen-wei Chang was born in 1929 as famine gripped northern China. Only the iron will of his mother kept the family alive. Wen-wei-a promising student-seemed destined for a brilliant career, but civil war intervened, forcing him to flee Beijing just before Communist forces arrived. In Shanghai, his family was reunited with his elder brother, now a leading Guomindang general commanding the final defense of the city.
