Song Full of Tears by R. Keith Schoppa

Book Description

Combining evocative historical description and cogent analysis, Song Full of Tears is a chronicle of nine hundred years of life in southeast China. It reveals the workings of Chinese society in times of environmental and military crises, how the Chinese reacted to changes, threats, and opportunities, and how they dealt with one another and the world of nature and the environment. Until the 18th century, Xiang Lake, in the province of Zheijiang, was the stage for morality battles between loyalty and betrayal, chastity and impurity, civic virtue and private greed. After the 18th century, concerns about ecology, public rights, and technology emerged as elements in the struggle, and in the 20th century, the fate of the lake became linked to national political developments and then to technological and ecological realities. Song Full of Tears shows how Chinese views of life, society, and nature both changed and remained constant through the centuries. The paperback will include a new epilogue by the author.

In a Sea of Bitterness by R. Keith Schoppa In a Sea of Bitterness, Hardback (January 2012)

The Japanese invasion of Shanghai in 1937 led 30 million Chinese to flee their homes in terror, and live--in the words of artist and writer Feng Zikai--"in a sea of bitterness" as refugees. Keith Schoppa paints a comprehensive picture of the refugee experience in one province, Zhejiang, where the Japanese launched notorious campaigns.
