This book is a collection of essays by a public servant who assisted the local government of Luanping County, Hebei Province, with poverty alleviation in 2018. As a senior editor and the deputy director of the overseas edition of People’s Daily, the newspaper of the Communist Party of China, Yang Yifeng left his post in Beijing as part of an initiative that assigns urban cadres to impoverished communities to apply their expertise and bring a fresh perspective to the poverty alleviation program.
The book is not a work report, but a personal diary with a vivid portrayal of village families and day-to-day poverty alleviation tasks, enlivened by the author’s personal feelings and reflections. It aims to bring the term “poverty alleviation” alive for readers by showing hardships in poverty alleviation and introducing working methods.
