    A brief and not at all sensational account of Chairman Mao Meaning it does not address any of the sensational aspects of Mao's personality such as Mao's physician did or dwell on the disasters of the Cultural Revolution of of the Great Leap Forward or get into the whys and wherefores of Mao's manipulative relationship with Lin Biao Liu Shao i or Zhou Enlai Instead it is a straight up account of Mao's life and

    A very condensed biography I felt it covers the beginnings of Mao's political career uite well but it's rather concise on the Small Leap the Great Leap and the Cultural Revolution It also has no time to shed light on Mao's accompanying characters Overall very useful brief intro to Mao and substantial part of China's 20t

Lute 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 tum. The author doesn t wander himself into Mao s ideological maze and his mysterious motives He doesn t condemn or praises Mao s political journey Amid authors whom demonize and over analyze psychologically to the point of conspiracy theories other world leaders this author just gives headlines Which sometimes were not certainly interesting and captivating for me He almost makes it seem that despite the huge state he lead he was a simple human being who lived in a cave onceHow many of us knew this fact before Or that he never visited any other country except the Soviet Union That he wrote romantic poems and was married to an actress among others Or that he was convinced that his sleep followed lunar phases These are definitely exotic facts But not satisfying enough for a student or any other engaged reader This book is a good start but it should be followed by research on maybe most importantly the Cultural Revolution and the Great Leap Forward

“Spence draws upon his extensive knowledge of Chinese politics and culture to create an illuminating picture of Mao Superb” Chicago Tribune From humble origins in the provinces Mao Zedong rose to abso. This is a good uick read for someone who interested in the way Mao created a public personality and clung to failing policies despite some evidence of his own doubt and criticism from others His journey from a child born in a peasant village who was uick to follow the winds of radical movements and read subversive newspapers as a youth to an isolated older man that imposed radical policies rooted in lofty aphorisms and who was paranoid of dissent from intellectuals and students much like himself when he was a youth I wish this book had gone into depth about how his conflict with chiang kai shek or the Chinese civil war I wondered while reading the book if Mao s experience with the several deaths of his children in their infancy and detachment from then influenced his apathy towards the suffering of the people for the sake of revolution On another note there was some amusing trivia such as his uote to Peng Dehuai if your not going to shit then get off the potWhat my father had told me about his life began to come together such as in in hundred blossoming flowers speech in 1957 which is when my father recalled Mao encouraging dissent with the dissenters promptly being punished for speaking out against Mao My father s cousin committed suicide after speaking out in this period My father called it luring the snake out of the hole
