The biography reveals three identities of Chinese essayist and translator Zhou Zuoren (1885 – 1967). Firstly, his controversial identity as an official of the “puppet regime” set up by Japan in the occupied area of China during WWII; secondly, he was an idealistic scholar; thirdly, he believed himself to be a martyr to the conservation of China and its people during the Japanese invasion. Adopting a cautious approach, the biography makes an honest mapping of Zhou’s life without ignoring the underling historical circumstances.
