Read full description of the books:



I've always loved early Chinese culture, and adore many of the more popular "current" novels. (The Good Earth Trilogy, Amy Tan's books,) but I've just discovered Lisa See, and I have to say that her books are phenomenal. I
ve been doing a lot of in depth study on the practice of footbinding, and it's development as a perception of beauty in Chinese tradition. You can actually find current photos of footbound women, since the practice continued despite government protest, in the mountainous regions of China until the 1940s and 50's. I have to wonder what psychological effects the practice may have had on the psyche of small girls, and the mothers who subjected them to it. In many "western" traditions that enforce the prevention of as much pain as possible, the idea of subjecting a child to pain, especially at the cost of beauty is ludicrous. However, how far removed is an Eastern ideal of beauty with regards to footbinding, from a parent who makes their child get braces, dental implants, nose jobs, hair extensions, and color and tanning treatments? is one any better or worse than the other?
