Interviewed by National Committee Senior Director for Education Programs Margot Landman, Tobie Meyer-Fong discusses her new book, What Remains:  Coming to Terms with Civil War in 19th Century China.  Meyer-Fong explores the human impact of the Taiping Rebellion, in which some 30 million people died, on those who remained after the fighting ended; how did individuals, families and communities grapple with fundamental questions of loyalty and loss as they struggled to rebuild shattered cities, bury the dead, and make sense of the horrors they had seen?
