I had also read this in my civil rights class as a required book. It was brilliant.
I had read most of Wild Swans. It is a great and well-written book. I recommend it for learning about Chinese history because it encompasses quite a lot. The political/cultural/social shift between Jung Chang's generation and her grandmother's generation is dramatic and alarming. Unfortunately, I could not get past the part where her father was taken.

Have you ever encountered a situation in which you have so much stuff that you do not know where to start?
A friend of mine is writing a book set in the 1900 - 1914 time period and is looking for any books or resources that talk about the day to day social etiquette of the emerging working middle-class. She's looking for information on the language and slang they would use as well. Any book recommendations would be greatly recieved.
Edit: Ooops, forgot to say - London, England.
