520    "Every year over 200 million peasants flock to China's 
       urban centers, providing a profusion of cheap labor that 
       helps fuel the country's staggering economic growth. Award
       -winning journalist Michelle Dammon Loyalka follows the 
       trials and triumphs of eight such migrants--including a 
       vegetable vendor, an itinerant knife sharpener, a free-
       spirited recycler, and a cash-strapped mother--offering an
       inside look at the pain, self-sacrifice, and uncertainty 
       underlying China's dramatic national transformation. At 
       the heart of the book lies each person's ability to 'eat 
       bitterness'--a term that roughly means to endure hardships,
       overcome difficulties, and forge ahead. These stories 
       illustrate why China continues to advance, even as the 
       rest of the world remains embroiled in financial turmoil. 
       At the same time, Eating Bitterness demonstrates how 
       dealing with the issues facing this class of people 
       constitutes China's most pressing domestic challenge"--
