SYNOPSIS

The daughter of a Canadian physician, Claire M. Lintilhac (1899-1984) grew up in rural China, and became a traveling nurse who lived and worked in the country throughout the first half of the 20th century, from the end of the last imperial dynasty to the first year of Communism. China in Another Time is drawn from the writings and recorded storytelling Claire left behind, with brief historical sidebars and a scholarly introduction. Illustrated with more than 160 photographs and drawings, this book tells the compelling, personal story of a woman who lived between the worlds of West and East — and it opens a window onto China’s turbulent struggle to become its own modern nation.
