ABSTRACT
The article announces the publication of the book "Chinese Lessons: Five Classmates and the Story of the New China," by John Pomfret. The material was published in August 2006 by Henry Holt and Co. It traces the lives of five Chinese men and women whom Pomfret went to university in Nanjing, China from 1980 to 1982. Pomfret used their successes, failures, loves, fears, mistresses, children, beliefs and dreams as a vehicle for telling a broader story in China.
