Mao, The Unknown Story. Jung Chang and Jon Halliday

MaoHard to believe the impact of one individual on so many generations and a national psyche, as well as the extent to which fundamental facts are simply unknown.  Woven within the context of Twentieth Century world history and given the role China – a fifth of the world’s population – is set to play on the world stage going forwards, a polemical yet humbling insight into the challenges facing the People’s Republic, past, present and future.  April 2014.
