Description of this Book

Presents the previously untold story of one man's attempt to use art to promote communist China in post-war New Zealand. As a tireless campaigner for world peace, nuclear disarmament and social justice, left-wing Hawke's Bay farmer H.W. Youren (1910-1983), courted national controversy. In China, he witnessed events seminal in the history of the foundation of the People's Republic. Alongside public talks and published writings, he attempted to use art to present an alternative image of China to that offered by government and the mainstream press. This book celebrates his life and the collection of Chinese art he amassed to promote New China to New Zealand
