Embassy of the Netherlands
As a New York commercial lawyer, Sidney Shapiro came to China in 1947 and has lived here ever since. He married a Chinese girl and became a Chinese citizen in 1963. He is the author of the well-known book, "An American in China" and is the translator of "Outlaws of the March," both of which have been published in America. He has recently completed a book on Jews in China which is to be published shortly. His talk will be an informal one based on his experiences while working and living in Shanghai and Peking during this interesting period of development in modern China.
