From the Publisher“A stimulating argument, useful for both novices andestablished scholars.”
"Meisner is uniquely qualified by political commitment,professional experience, and scholarly talent to produce thisimportant new biography of Mao. He offers a reasoned, indeedregretful, Marxist analysis of Mao's role in the Chineserevolution, acknowledging his successes but particularly seeking tounderstand the roots of Maos dictatorship and the many tragediesbefell China under his sway. In this way, Meisner offers a usefuland compelling narrative that truly provides food forthought."
