In 1872, China ravaged by poverty, population growth, and aggressive European armies sent 120 boys to America to learn the secrets of Western innovation. They studied at New England s finest schools and were driven by a desire for progress and reform. When anti-Chinese fervor forced them back home, the young men had to overcome a suspicious imperial court and a country deeply resistant to change in technology and culture. Fortunate Sons tells a remarkable story, weaving together the dramas of personal lives with the fascinating tale of a nation s endeavor to become a world power.
