    I have read many books in my time but the two books that stand out for me are Dragon Seed by Pearl S. Buck and This Perfect Day by Irn Levin. Although The Good Earth is a fine book by any standard, Dragon Seed brought the characters to life for me. I have re-read these two books so many times that they have become a little "raggy" with time. Dragon Seed is not just another war story. It is a complex look into the lives of a simple farm family in China during peace time, then as a war approaches, then during and after the struggle. The relationships between the family members and the way they accept their roles in the family and society shocked my western sensibilities.

    Dragon Seed champions the need for more active support of China as the Chinese recoil from the horrors of the Japanese invasion early in World War II. Its major theme is the outrageousness of man's inhumanity to man in wartime. Dragon seed in the Antipodes: Chinese Australian self-representations. Download ( MB). link to publisher version.

Dragon Seed in the Antipodes: Chinese-Australian Autobiographies by Yuanfang Shen (Author) ISBN Cited by: Dragon Seed moves, like the China before communism, at a slow and deliberate pace, although it’s never boring. Mrs. Buck has an uncanny way of foreshadowing incidents and facts that makes one have to keep turning the page to follow the wonderful, heartbreaking progress of Lin Tan and his extended family during the horrendous “Rape of Nanking” during WWII/5(27).

"Dragon Seed in the Antipodes is a pioneering work on the nature and construction of Chinese-Australian identity. Shen Yuanfang's close examination of self-portraits by more than twenty Chinese Australians shows that they resist any facile generalisation about a unified Chinese identity.".
