China In Another Time: A Personal Story, Claire Malcolm Lintilhac & Doug Wilhelm

The daughter of a Canadian physician who spent his career in China, Claire Malcolm Lintilhac (1899-1984) was born and grew up in the country, became a traveling nurse there, and saw firsthand the momentous events that roiled China through the whole first half of the 20th century.

Opening a unique window onto the making of the world’s newest yet oldest superpower, China in Another Time – with over 160 vintage photos and drawings – is Lintilhac’s own story, compiled from the writings and recorded storytelling she left behind.

Brief sidebar articles by editor Doug Wilhelm clarify key historical moments and conflicts, and the book includes an introduction by eminent China scholar Nicholas Clifford, late professor emeritus at Middlebury College.
