About Jung Chang

Jung Chang was born in Yibin, Sichuan province, China, in 1952. During the Cultural Revolution (1966--1976) she worked as a peasant, a "barefoot doctor," a steelworker, and an electrician before becoming an English-language student and, later, an assistant lecturer at Sichuan University. She left China for Britain in 1978 and was subsequently awarded a scholarship by the University of York, where she obtained a Ph.D. in linguistics in 1982, the first person from the People's Republic of China to receive a doctorate from a British University. Her award-winning book, Wild Swans, was published in 1991, and has sold more than 10 million copies in 30 languages. Jon Halliday is a former Senior Visiting Research Fellow at King's College, University of London. He has written or edited eight previous books.
