What does it mean to have grown up female in the Mao era? How can the remembered details of everyday life help shed light upon those turbulent times? Some of Us is a collection of memoirs by nine Chinese women who grew up during the Mao era. All hail from urban backgrounds and all have obtained their Ph.D.s in the United States; thus, their memories are informed by intellectual training and insights that only distance can allow. Each of the chapters--arranged by the age of the author--is crafted by a writer who reflects back to that time in a more nuanced manner than has been possible for Western observers. The authors attend to gender in a way that male writers have barely noticed and reflect on their lives in the United States. The issues explored here are as varied as these women's lives: The burgeoning rebellion of a young girl in northeast China. A girl's struggles to obtain for herself the education her parents inspired her to attain. An exploration of gender and identity as experienced by two sisters. Some of Us offers insight into a place and time when life was much more complex than Westerners have allowed. These eloquent writings shatter our stereotypes of persecution, repression, victims, and victimizers. Together, these multi-faceted memoirs offer the reader new perspectives as they daringly explore difficult--and fascinating--issues.

"She remains a thinker and activist who 'insists upon complexity.' "Reamy Jansen, San Francisco Chronicle*Some of Us Did Not Die brings together a rich sampling of the late poet June Jordan's prose writings. The essays in this collection, which include her last writings and span the length of her extraordinary career, reveal Jordan as an incisive analyst of the personal and public costs of remaining committed to the ideal and practice of democracy. Willing to venture into the most painful contradictions of American culture and politics, Jordan comes back with lyrical honesty, wit, and wide-ranging intelligence in these accounts of her reckoning with life as a teacher, poet, activist, and citizen.

These stories were motivated and inspired from personal experiences interwoven with fictional characters to highlight specific themes that we all experience, observe, or hear about via anecdotal reports, the media, our peers, etc. "A Man Called Shane" was inspired by experiences in a Eurocentric institution. "The Hillsdale Kids" was inspired by employment in a social agency for children. "The Belle Isle Affair" was inspired by tenure in Ecorse/Detroit, Michigan. "The Grosse Isle Murders" was based on a clinical case report. "The Transplant from Family Therapy Encounters" and "When the Door Came Open" were also from clinical experiences. "The Last Hippie" was from the proliferation of technology and baby boomer transitions. Finally, "Growing Up with Momma" and "The Bird Sings" were inspired by a mother's sacrifice, love, and guidance.
