    ePUB Ha Jin ✓ A Map of Betrayal eBook æ A Map PDF/EPUB ² ✓ betrayal free, A Map free, A Map of Betrayal KindleThis is a novel that doesn't uite work for me as either a compelling spy story or as a fictional doorway into history although that is the main reason to read it It provides the author with a platform to reflect on US China interactions during the second half of the 20th century and to present aspects of the Chinese American experience It's an okay read but not a book I would recommend to friends Themes of interest to me were spies who may grow to want to serve two countries; patriotism and nationalism; the role of nationalism in our world today; the complexity of opinions surround

    ePUB Ha Jin ✓ A Map of Betrayal eBook æ A Map PDF/EPUB ² ✓ betrayal free, A Map free, A Map of Betrayal KindleA Map of Betrayal the story of Gary Shang a Chinese spy who served as a translator for the CIA is a slow paced account of Gary’s activities from 1949 to 1980 and his daughter’s search to discover who her father really was Accounts of the progress of relations between China and Russia were interesting but the book moved at an uneven pace freuently getting bogged down in details such as food or clothing which didn’t serve to add to the focus of the story the conflict Gary felt between his loyalties to his homeland and the affection he had come to feel for his adopted home of America
