" In 1983 Arthur Miller was invited to direct a Chinese version of his play, "Death of a Salesman." "Salesman in Beijing" is his day by day account of his experience. Most of the book focuses on the problems of communication with the Chinese actors as a result of linguistic and cultural differences. He feels that he was able to overcome these difficulties because of the dedication of the actors and the fact that the play itself deals with universal qualities that transcend local culture. He also talks about the problems of the Chinese theatre in the eighties. Intellectuals had been frowned on for a long time in China, and it was only recently that they were allowed to resume their professional activities. "
