About this product
- DescriptionEdgar Sw (1905 - 1972) was one of the most table Western journalists to report on China in both the revolutionary and post-revolutionary periods. He first became famous in the mid-1930s when he broke through a Nationalist blockade and reached the Communists in rthwest China. For nearly a decade, foreign reporter had seen the Communists, who were widely regarded as a ragtag bandit army. Sw took them seriously as a national movement. His reporting in the w-famous book Red Star over China was major news, even to the Chinese, thousands of whom joined the Communists after reading it. It has remained a seminal reference on the early Chinese Communist movement. In this award-winning biography, journalist John Maxwell Hamilton follows Sw from his birth in Kansas City to his rise as a celebrated foreign correspondent for the Saturday Evening Post, his ostracism during the cold war, and his role as a singular journalistic bridge between Communist China and the United States. With a new preface by the author, this revealing portrait of the widely misunderstood Sw firmly establishes him as a model for the kind of committed reporting that is crucial to understanding our interdependent world.
