In English


The Story of China's urbanization has been unfolding over the last 15 years.  But what happens when we dig beneath the gritty surface and explore this issue on a personal level?  For three years, Mike Meyer rented a home in the rice-farming community of Wasteland, hometown to his wife's family whose personal saga mirrors the tremendous change most of rural China is undergoing.  In Manchuria is a scintillating combination of memoir, travelogue, contemporary reporting and historical research, presenting a unique profile of China's northeast territory.
