Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Whether one views Mao Zedong as a hero or a demon, the "Great Helmsman" was, undoubtedly, a pivotal figure in the history of twentieth-century China, a man whose life and writings provide a fascinating window on the Chinese experience from the 1920s onward. Part Mao biography, part historical overview of the turbulent story of Chinas Communist revolutions, the introductory essay traces the history of twentieth-century China, from Maos early career up to the Chinese Communist Partys victory in 1949, through three decades of revolution to Maos death in 1976. The second half of the volume offers a selection of Maos writings — including such seminal pieces as "On New Democracy" and selections from the Little Red Book — and writings about Mao and his legacy by both his contemporaries and modern scholars. Also included are headnotes to the documents, a chronology, Questions for Consideration, 12 images, a selected bibliography, and an index.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 237-242) and index.
