Factory Girls: From Village to City in a Changing China
Leslie Chang is married to Peter Hessler (see Country Driving on this list), and together, they've spent a lot of years in China, learning about the people. This book will open your eyes to what life is like in the factories of China, and how millions of Chinese have migrated from the country to the cities. It's a long book with many stories to tell, and much food for thought. If you're doing business in China, or thinking about doing business in China, I urge you to read this book. But please, Country Driving should come first. Read them in that order and you'll see what I mean.
