Review quote

Wang's exploration of political exiles in Mao's China incorporates his exhaustive research into a truly beautiful narrative, full of individual voices... raw and moving ... Banished to the Great Northern Wilderness [is] indispensable reading for anyone who wants to understand the history of the People's Republic of China -- Aminda Smith, Michigan State University * Historical Studies in Education * Seen through a wider lens, Ning Wang's work inspires us to rethink thought and labour reform in China as part of a larger global history that continues to evolve. -- Ulug Kuzuoglu, Columbia University * Pacific Affairs, Volume 91, No. 4 *
