He was later put in prison because of his participation in the Picket Corps and his parents were also being persecuted. He had been sent to the countryside to join the production team for “re-education”. He built his knowledge foundation by his hardwork and earned a Master degree in the economics discipline.
He had been the secretary of government officials, and senior management personnel of two state-owned enterprises, the Everbright Group and the CITIC Group, within which he devoted his talent to help tackle various problems.
Through personal interviews with Kong Dan, Mi Hedu compiled the biography of this legendary figure in the modern Chinese history, depicting how he went through the ups and downs in 60 years. His experience can be regarded as a reflection of the historical development and political reform in China back in the Mao Zedong regime.
