China's American Daughter free pdf Ida Pruitt, born of American missionaries and raised in a rural Chinese village at the end of the nineteenth century, witnessed almost a century of China's revolutionary upheavals. She was the first Director of Social Service at the Peking Union Medical College, where she established social casework in China. She later served as the executive secretary of the American Committee in Support of the Chinese Industrial Cooperatives, the only U.S. aid agency to provide support to both Nationalist and Communist regions during the Chinese Civil War. She was also one of the early advocates for U.S. diplomatic recognition of the People's Republic of China. Her two notable books, "A Daughter of Han: the Autobiography of a Chinese Working Woman", "Ning Lao T'ai-t'ai and Old Madam Yin: A Memoir of Peking, 1926-1938", have become classics in Chinese Studies and Women's Studies. "China's American Daughter: Ida Pruitt (1888-1985)" tells the story of this remarkable woman, and brings a unique perspective to the study of modern Chinese history.
