Great texts to add to our collection. Thank you!
I'll add The John Locke Collection
and Common Sense by Thomas Paine
John Milton's Aeropagitica
All of Plato (but especially the "Apology")
I'd also highly recommend Fredrick Douglass's narrative for more poignant ideas on freedom.
and A Modest Proposal for the satire and core message.
I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself.
Wild Swans: Three Daughters of China is a family history that spans a century, recounting the lives of three female generations in China, by Chinese writer Jung Chang. First published in 1991, Wild Swans contains the biographies of her grandmother and her mother, then finally her own autobiography. Her grandmother had bound feet and was married off at a young age as the concubine of a high-status warlord. Chang's mother rose in status as a member of the Communist Party. Chang took part in the Cultural Revolution as a member of the Red Guards, but eventually her father was tortured and she was sent to the countryside for thought reform. Later, she earned a scholarship to study in England, where she still lives.
