Mao Zedong

“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 was no deep look into the trivial doings of Mao but rather a synopsis of his life I found it to be absolutely perfect for what it was The details all seemed to be on the same plane no sudden dips down into minutia unmatched elsewhere Likewise no skipping over the surface to cover great gulfs of time in only a few pages No doubt the end lacked depth but the author certainly made a good case for they why Mao s personal journey having been mostly completed and no events were happening to him instead of emanating from himIf someone wishes a uick summary just under 200 pages of a man that has defined a country for generations this is wonderful pick It does provide insight into the man along with giving an account of the history of his time Being someone who knew only

    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

    For those looking for a short introduction into the life of Chairman Mao Zedong this is a perfect book Although it is true that others have gone in depth for a person who is just reading for a simple understanding of his life it gives the information that helps you understand the revolution leading to the current state of The People's Republic of China changing from their empire to their Nationalist Government

    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 C
