Description

Was Mao the first red emperor or the last great Marxist leader? Mao Zedong was held in awe by his people, seen by many as a supreme hero who had freed their country. He led a vast social revolution and made China a superpower that competed with the Soviet Union as the leader of international socialism. Michael Lynch presents a thorough account of Mao's life and politics, making use of a wealth of primary and secondary sources. He locates Maoism in the broader context of 20th-century Chinese history, discussing the development of the Chinese Communist Party, the creation of the People's Republic of China and the Cultural Revolution, and the part played by Mao in the Cold War. Details of Mao's controversial private life as well as his political and philosophical thought add to this diverse picture of the influential leader. This biography should be useful reading to anyone interested in 20th-century China and its most memorable figure.
