In the turbulent years after World War I, American novelist Pearl S. Buck, African American singer and activist Paul Robeson, left-wing journalist Agnes Smedley, and Chinese authors Lao She and Lin Yutang sought to transform the terms by which the United States and China, or more broadly East” and West,” knew each other. Individually, they produced works that altered American conceptions of China and vice versa. Together, they collaborated on political projects that synthesized American and Chinese visions of equality. Their network drew from radical visions of political revolution and new technologies of communication. Their transpacific community upset traditional routes of power and articulated a new course for East-West cultural exchange.
