Allan Gregg in Conversation (Video) show

Summary: Jan Wong is the author of "Red China Blues: My Long March From Mao to Now". The book chronicles Wong's disillusionment with China and Maoism. In 1972, during Mao's Cultural Revolution, Wong was one of only two western students to attend Beijing University. In 1988, she returned to China as a reporter for the Globe and Mail. By then, the country was under the capitalist reform of Deng Xiaoping, and Wong found a very different China. (Originally aired May 1996)
