"One of the best-known modern Chinese fairy tales is based on the story of three real-life sisters from Shanghai. It was sometimes said that "One loved money, one loved power and one loved her country", but there was far more to the Soong sisters than these caricatures. As China battled through a hundred years of wars, revolutions and seismic transformations, each sister played an important, sometimes critical role, and left an indelible mark on history. Red Sister, Ching-ling, married Sun Yat-sen, founding father of the Chinese republic, and later became Mao's vice-chair. Little Sister, May-ling, was Madame Chiang Kai-shek, first lady of the pre-Communist Nationalist China and a major political figure in her own right. Big Sister, Ei-ling, was Chiang's unofficial main adviser - and made herself one of China's richest women. All three sisters enjoyed tremendous privilege and glory, but also endured constant attacks and mortal danger. They showed great courage and experienced passionate love, as well as despair and heartbreak. The relationships between them were highly charged emotionally, especially once they had embraced opposing political camps and Ching-ling dedicated herself to destroying her two sisters' world. Big Sister, Little Sister, Red Sister is a gripping story of love, war, exile, intrigue, glamour and betrayal, which takes us on a monumental journey, from Canton to Hawaii and New York, from exiles' quarters in Japan and Berlin to secret meeting rooms in Moscow, and from the compounds of the Communist elite in Beijing to the corridors of power in democratic Taiwan. In a group biography that is by turns intimate and epic, Jung Chang reveals the lives of three extraordinary women who helped shape the history of twentieth-century China"--… (mais)

Big Sister, Little Sister, Red Sister: Three Women at the Heart of Twentieth-Century China por Jung Chang (2019)

    The Last Empress, Madame Chiang Kai-shek and the Birth of Modern China por Hannah Pakula (susanbooks)
    susanbooks: Chang leaves all politics out so, for instance when Sun Yat-sen launches a rebellion, she puts it down to a personal fit of pique, rather than a decades-old social movement. This lack of context makes her book melodramatic & soap operatic. Pakula packs in detailed history, gets her chronology straight, educated me on that place/time. Different bios for different audiences/moods… (mais)

A very good book to read if needing an update on Chinese history. However the story of this family left me completely disinterested. Such horrible people,! Living a very privileged life with no regard for the welfare of their fellow countrymen. All they wanted was power and money. And to think we were taught that Chiang Kai-shek was such a hero......

This is a highly readable and entertaining book. Well researched and interpreted, the author shows restraint by presenting an unbiased version of a very complex period in China’s history. Reflecting the political climate, I expect the research material was more accessible for the two ‘western’ sisters. Red Sister was a little harder to get to grips with, and her motivations less understood, perhaps due to limitations with information sources.
Well worth reading. ( )

Fascinating, readable and highly accessible history of modern China and story of three womens' lives. I really enjoyed this and look forward to reading more from Jung Chang. ( )

Fascinating depiction of the history of China over the last 150 years through the lives of the 3 Soong sisters. Just the right level of detail to keep it engrossing but not overwhelming for the casual reader. ( )
