Helen Zia's new book reveals the forgotten mass exodus from one of the most tumultuous events of the 20th Century--China's communist revolution--and its continued profound impact on global politics today. Last Boat out of Shanghai chronicles the real stories of people who faced the chaos, frenzy and terror of revolution and catapulted themselves into the unknown of Hong Kong, Taiwan, anywhere in search of safety -- including the United States, where they complicate the Chinese American sensibility. And instead of finding safe haven, many of these migrants found unwelcome attitudes and political hostilities that barred them, much as present-day refugees face hostility, barriers, and violence around the globe. Their stories of courage, endurance and resilience are finally told and offer important and heartfelt lessons for today.
