Overview


Mao Zedong went from being a poor farmer's son to a revolutionary leader, a general in World War II and the ruler of the world's most populous nation. Alternately glorified and demonized, not only in the Western world, but also in the China that he once ruled, his influence persists to this day. This new biography will capitalize on new information that has recently come to light, about his private life (and his several wives), with the publication of memoirs by his doctor and former nurse, among others.

Editorial Reviews

KLIATT - Janet Julian
The Life & Times series from Haus Publishing is carefully researched and lavishly illustrated. Mao Zedong is a thorough biography that includes many quotes from the Chairman himself. Author Jonathan Clements has studied Chinese and written extensively on other historical figures. The text covers Mao's early life, education (shortened by his "spoilt, rebellious nature" that caused his expulsion from several schools), early political involvement, four wives, leadership of the nascent Communist Party and the Long March, the failure of farm collectivization that resulted in widespread famine, meetings with Khrushchev and Nixon, and the deaths of about 70 million Chinese to famine and oppression.
