Summary
  • There are many books on the Chinese revolution, but none cover the politics of the revolution like this one. The author's collection and use of oral histories - from the last remaining eyewitnesses - and written corroborative materials is a remarkable achievement; his new interpretation of why China's rural people supported and joined the Communists in their quest for state power is dramatically different from what has come before
