"Mao Zedong, a major revolutionary leader in 1920s China and Chairman of the Chinese Communist Party from 1949 until his death in 1976, was an ambitious, inspired, creative, and flawed human being. The details of Mao's character, achievements, and failures emerge in this arresting biography, thanks in part to the availability of documents that were previously unavailable to Western biographers. Russian historian Alexander Pantsov and China specialist Steven Levine reveal the highs and lows of Mao's career along with his disorderly life - including accounts of his family, other personal relationships, and political rivalries."
