The daughter of a missionary doctor, Claire Malcolm Lintilhac was born in China,

became a nurse there, and lived and worked through China's whole momentous first

half of the 20th century. Opening a unique window into the making of the world's

newest yet oldest superpower, China in Another Time -- with over 160 photos and

drawings -- is Claire's own story.

A remarkable true story that opens a window on the dramatic decades that

made today's China. Born in China's interior as the daughter of a Canadian medical missionary, Claire

Malcolm Lintilhac learned fluent Chinese, became a traveling nurse and lived through

the whole momentous first half of China's 20th century. After her family barely escaped

the bloody Boxer Rebellion of 1900, Claire witnessed firsthand the years of civil war that

followed China's short-lived Nationalist Revolution of 1911. In the 1930s -- as Claire

cared for patients both Western and Chinese, fell in love and started a family -- she

survived Japan's two horrific attacks on Shanghai, and her British husband Lin was

interned by the Japanese in a Shanghai camp during World War II. In 1949 Claire

watched as China's greatest city fell to the Communist Party, and in 1950 she, Lin and

their son Philip finally left the country they loved. Illustrated with over 160 photos and

drawings, China in Another Time is Claire's vividly personal account of China's struggle

to become its own modern nation, from the last imperial dynasty to the advent of

Communist rule. With an introduction by eminent China scholar Nicholas Clifford,

professor emeritus at Middlebury College.
