"Shanghai Journal, first published in 1969, is Neale Hunter's fascinating and lively account of the early days of the Cultural Revolution in Shanghai, the seat of power of the 'Gang of Four'. The book derives from the two years, 1965 to 1967, when he and his wife taught English at the Shanghai Foreign Languages Institute. Drawing on unique and ephemeral materials, such as wall-posters, as well as his own first-hand experience, he vivdly conveys the 'feel' of Shanghai in those turbulent times."
