Mao Zedong by Jonathan D. Spence, Alexander Adams

An intimate history of one of the most formidable and elusive rulers in modern history

From humble origins in the provinces, Mao Zedong rose to absolute power, unifying with an iron fist a vast country torn apart by years of weak leadership, colonialism, and war. This sharply drawn and insightful account brings to life this modern-day emperor and the tumultuous era that he did so much to shape.

Good to know. Mao's land reform and peasant rights efforts were extremely admirable and required much sacrifice and many hardships on his part. Unfortunately, as Chairman Mao, he was a selfish and tragic leader who was responsible for much suffering, as a result of his repressive and violent leadership.
