Jung Chang was born in Sichuan Province, China in 1952. Her parents were mid-level cadres in the Communist Party. During the Cultural Revolution they were targeted by extremists and sent into "internal exile". Chang herself was sent to live in a very primitive commune and became a "barefoot doctor". After the death of Mao Zedong she completed her university education and left to study in England.
