This book is one of the first accounts to come out on communism in China and it took place before the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) overthrew the GMD (the Nationalist Party). Snow's book is easy enough to read and is very descriptive. Although, Snow's view is biased (the book reeks with his opinions on communism) it is an enlightening book on his travels throughout China in Red territory and his interview with Mao Tse-tung (Mao Zedong). It is a fascinating account and, despite the biases, reveals a lot about the communists during this time. Snow is very descriptive¿almost too descriptive¿ but is a very clear writer. When you read this book you have to take into account that it is written by a biased viewer and critique it that way. You will be looking at the heart of the CCP through the eyes of another, who has their own opinions.
