Die dunkle Straße

Nfachen Menschen im Vordergrund und ihre dramatischen Schicksale im Zuge eines gewaltigen politischen Umbruchs Sein erschütternder Roman über ihr Leben ist Geschichte von unten; es ist auch die Geschichte des Jangtse seiner ökologischen Krisen durch Staudammbau und Begradigung; es ist die Geschichte der chinesischen Industrialisierung und des Preises den die Menschen dafür zu zahlen haben – ein ungeschminktes schockierendes Porträt von China im Wande. She discovered that women don t own their bodies their wombs and genitals are battle zones over which their husbands and the state fight for control territories their husbands invade for sexual gratification and to produce male heirs and which the state probes monitors guards and scrapes so as to assert its power and spread fear These continual intrusions into her bodu s most intimate parts have made her lose her sense of who she is All she is certain of is that she is a legal wife and an illegal motherI d be better off dead Ma Jian The Dark RoadTW Rape assault forced abortion and sterilization child murderMa Jian s The Dark Road is a bleak look at China s one child policy and how it affects the people of rural China This book is set after the Cultural Revolution in the early 2000s Having lived in China from 2003 to 2006 there were parts of this that I recognized especially the descriptions of rural life city life and the markets That said I never saw the dark underbelly of China although was warned repeatedly about children being stolen and used as peddlers The story follows Meili and her scholarly husband Kongzi a descendent of Confucious When Meili becomes pregant with their second child they are forced to leave their village before being discovered by the National Population and Family Planning Commission If caught Meili would be forced to have an abortion and fitted with an IUD without her consent They end up buying a boat and float for years on the Yangtze River trying to avoid the authorities Their ultimate goal is to end up in Heaven Village where Meili has heard that women do not have to get pregnant thereAs of this year the outcome of China s One Child Policy has resulted in 30 million men than women and sex trafficking and mail order brides are a result of it The policy began in the 1980s and lasted 30 years before being revised a few years ago Ma Jian s account of Meili s life as a walking uterus not a woman who should be valued for her intelligence and capability is obvious She is never able to fend her husband off has no form of birth control gets caught by the police and has zero control over her life and her own bodyThis book is unbelievably sad but it is also an eye opening and brutal account of how women live in China and how villages have adapted and become so polluted Takeaway uotes Never rely on a husband for your happiness The government persecute men then men persecute their wives in return And what do the wives do If they have a child they slap it to let off steam If not they drown themselves or swallow bottles of pesticide Ma Jian The Dark Road What is a wife for if not to produce sonsWhy are you so obsessed with having a son It s so feudal Don t you know that men and women are eual nowMy brother has no sons so it s my responsibility to continue the family line Our daughters will join their husband s family when they marry and their names won t be recorded in the Kong register So they serve no purpose to usStill clinging to those outmoded Confucian beliefs I warn you the modern world will leave you behindHuh Just a few days on the road and already you ve become worldly wise Don t forget you left school at eight while I graduated at sixteen so I ll always be cleverer than youStop being so patronising We re both fugitives now Let s see how far your male chauvinism gets you here Ma Jian The Dark Road All these years you drone on about benevolence righteousness propriety wisdom then you go and sell your own daughter Ma Jian The Dark Road

summary Die dunkle Straße

Weit entfernt vom chinesischen Wirtschaftswunder und von den hellen Lichtern von Peking und Schanghai liegt ein riesiges ländliches Hinterland das die brachialen Folgen von Industrialisierung und Ökonomisierung zu tragen hat Dort leben die Bäuerin Meili und ihr Mann Gongzi ein Nachkomme von Konfuzius im siebzehnten Glied Die beiden wollen neben ihrem ersten Kind einem Mädchen einen Sohn um das Erbe fortzusetzen Da ihnen die Behörden die für alle die E. Ma Jian has written a shocking novel THE DARK ROAD that chronicles the inhumane policies of China s one child policy It s chilling infuriating and almost unbearable to read with its dark detail Perhaps the most disturbing feature of Ma s story is the knowledge that you the reader can do nothing about itThe policy of one child for each normal family is enforced by governmental agencies using forced abortion and sterilization Brutality and inhumanity force women of China to flee and hide from secretive agents of the Chinese government s family planning agency to either conceal their pregnancy or protect children already born in violation of the law To be discovered means to be subjected to unbelievable abortion tactics beatings rape and a lifetime of supervised sanctionA young peasant woman Meili lives a life of poverty under the rule of an arrogant husband Kongzi who believes his legacy as a lineal descendant of Confucious reuires that they produce a son Already the parents of a girl Nannan and with Meili again pregnant with an illegal child their life is in continuous turmoil as they eke out a meager living while trying to evade governmental agents In desperation they try to find better conditions by traveling down the foul Xi River in a tiny decrepit houseboat They are eventually discovered and Meili is subjected to a brutal abortion In heartbroken disarray she returns to a husband who continues to attempt to impregnate her at every opportunity without regard to the suffering she has already experienced her physical condition or the possibility of heartless pain for her should another pregnancy occur Kongzi is adamant and incredibly goatish They must produce a son Ma is a dissident writer who was born in China whose work is banned there and who continues to travel the country in an effort to expose the cruelty of the one child rule Critics complain that his writing is heavily biased against the policies of the Chinese government and that he unfairly criticizes the attempts to control the runaway population His writing is morose and filled with details about abortion and childbirth in filthy conditions There are instances in the book when the reader experiences near disbelief at his portrayals of inhumanity But he is unapologetic and maintains that his depictions are factual based on personal observations Through the gloom Ma actually presents some luminous and humorous momentsAs China continues its relentless rise to world power with proclamations of being a great society Ma Jian and others who echo his relentless disapproval will continue to produce stains on the official view of Chinese life The one child policy he depicts is but one serious transgression that spoils China s image on the world stage Corruption fraudulent economic policies poor uality export products intellectual property piracy unsafe food products and severe human rights violations are other smears on China s policies I have no reason to doubt the accuracy of his story I abhor it I shudder at it But I am thankful that a writer of his talent has the courage to share his observations We are free to make our own decisions about the veracityThis is an incredible book Ma Jian s ability at portraying a life with all its depressions and high points has to be recognized The storyline is wonderfully presented His characters are to be both embraced and reviled I recommend this book for the non sueamish who are interested in the workings of a government obsessed with control It s not light entertainment but will provide mesmerizing reading about a current situation under much discussion

    Look I just can't with this book People are giving it really high ratings lots of four or even five stars and no it's not that good In fact it's not good at allI think a lot of people are confusing the idea of a compelling story about modern rural China under Communist oppression something that at least in some parts is either patently false or just based in modern myth see baby soup with the idea of the novel being a compelling

    Jung Chang author of Wild Swans said My motto about message in a book is flowers in honey salt in water The messages have disappeared but the flavors are everywhereMa Jian might say poison in honey industrial waste in water The multiple messages in this polemical novel coat every page like the Styrofoam and electronic waste that covers every

    Warning The Dark Road will break your heart The novel is a fictional account of how China's one child policy affected the rural Chinese and one family in particular The author Ma Jian is a Chinese dissident who spent a year with families on the run who were trying to evade authorities So while the story is fiction he based it on the true stories he both heard and witnessed Forced abortions and sterilizations child abandonment if female hug
