Shattered Families, Broken Dreams: Little Known Episodes from the History of the Persecution of Chinese Revolutionaries in Stalin's Gulag
Author: Sin-Lin; Translator: Levine,Steven I.;
Sin-Lin’s work recounts in vivid detail her bitter experiences in Mao's China. During the Great Terror, her father was arrested on false espionage charges and languished in a gulag for seventeen years before returning to China in 1955. His recollections, enfolded within Sin-Lin’s memoir, open up the hitherto closed world of the hundreds of Chinese who were among Stalin's victims.

“Sin-Lin tells the Tolstoyan tale of her struggle to understand her parents, young Chinese revolutionaries studying in Moscow where Sin-Lin was born. . . . The way the [Chinese communist] regime abused both her parents . . . showed the party's insecurity. . . . The book includes documents about . . . Chinese revolutionaries who disappeared into Stalin's gulag as a result of paranoid power struggles within the communist movement.” —Andrew J. Nathan, Foreign Affairs (May–June 2013)
