Abstract

China Review International: Vol. 16, No. 3, 2009 I agree with Winchester's enthusiasm about the book; the resilience and survival ability of ordinary Chinese people is nothing short of admirable. That they will become the "new masters of the world" is, perhaps, hyperbole. Not only is Factory Girls a book about migrant workers in Dongguan, a booming manufacturing city with no apparent character or personality, but hers is an excellent study of young people growing up anomic in a rapidly changing China. Leslie Chang, the perceptive and sensitive writer with a focus on the people of China, suggests another writer of such vintage, Peter Hessler, who gave us equally sensitive and empathetic books on the people of China such as his River Town (New York: HarperCollins, 2001) and Oracle Bones (New York: HarperCollins, 2006). Peter Hessler and Leslie Chang were married in 2006. Franklin J. Woo Franklin J. Woo (retired) was a chaplain and a lecturer in religion at Chung Chi College, Chinese University of Hong Kong (1965­1976), and the director of the China Program, the National Council of the Churches of Christ in the United States.
