This authoritative account of Mao's life is based on years of research and on interviews with many of his close friends who had not talked before this book. Motivated by a thirst for personal power over political vision, Mao comes across in these pages as another Hitler or Stalin. According to the New York Times, the Chinese government banned the book along with any magazine carrying a review of it; [xvi], [2], 3-814, [2] pages.
