Synopsis

Mao Zedong and China's Revolutions A Brief History with Documents by Na Na

Whether one views Mao Zedong as a hero or a demon, the Great Helmsman was undoubtedly a pivotal figure in the history of 20th-century China. The first part of this volume is an introductory essay that traces the history of 20th-century China, from Mao's early career up to the Chinese Communist Party's victory in 1949, through three decades of revolution, to Mao's death I 1976. The second half offers a selection of Mao's writings - including such seminal pieces as On the New Democracy and selections from the Little Red Book - and writings about Mao and his legacy by both his contemporaries and modern scholars. Also included are headnotes, a chronology, Questions for Consideration, photographs, a selected bibliography, and index.
