This biography of Chinese-born Dr. Tsien Hsue-shen delineates his life as a preeminent American space scientist who was accused of being a Communist, put under house arrest, and eventually deported to China, where he directed the development of the Silkworm missiles. Anna Fields traces his early life in China, his education in the United States, and the life he led thereafter. She profiles Hsue-shen as shy and dignified. With authority, she produces a vocal composition that allows the listener to follow the symmetry of this intricate story from continent to continent.
