Shanghai 1949: The End of an Era
by Sam Tata
Publisher's Description
"This is a record of Shanghai, once the commercial capital of the Far East, in the days of the Chinese Revolution. . . .The photographs show vividly the original Shanghai, a multi-racial city of swarming streets and alleys. They show an extraordinary blend of Chinese city life, the experiences of rich and poor, Europeans and Chinese intermingling yet worlds apart, the flight of refugees, the summary trials of the young Communists by the Nationalist authorities, prisoners being taken for execution, Mao posters being prepared for parade, the Liberation celebrations. From nuns to beggars to European expatriates to soldiers of the Kuomingtang, this is a unique document of history as it happened."--the publisher.
