"Through meticulous archival research, including valuable material no longer accessible to the public, and interviews with survivors, Xiaoping Fang has produced a fine-grained study on the cholera epidemic in southeast China in the early 1960s. His lucid account shows how the government’s efforts to manage this disease deepened social divisions and created control and surveillance mechanisms that continue to mold the lives of people in China today—particularly during outbreaks of epidemic disease."

Quote
Athwart the harbor lingers yet    The ashen gleam of breaking day, And where the guardian cliffs are set    The noiseless shadows steal away; But all the winnowed eastern sky    Is flushed with many a tender hue,    And spears of light are smiting through The ranks where huddled sea-mists fly. Across the ocean, wan and gray,    Gay fleets of golden ripples come, For at the birth-hour of the day    The roistering, wayward winds are dumb. The rocks that stretch to meet the tide    Are smitten with a ruddy glow,    And faint reflections come and go Where fishing boats at anchor ride. All life leaps out to greet the light --    The shining sea-gulls dive and soar, The swallows whirl in dizzy flight,    And sandpeeps flit along the shore. From every purple landward hill    The banners of the morning fly,    But on the headlands, dim and high, The fishing hamlets slumber still. One boat alone beyond the bar    Is sailing outward blithe and free, To carry sturdy hearts afar    Across those wastes of sparkling sea; Staunchly to seek what may be won    From out the treasures of the deep,    To toil for those at home who sleep And be the first to greet the sun.
Sunrise Along Shore, by Lucy Maud Montgomery (1901)
This poem always reminds me of quietly gorgeous sunrises over Lake Ontario...
