Book Description Hutchinson, London, 1979. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. Illustrations / Photographs / Map (illustrator). First Edition. Dust jacket complete, unclipped discoloured spine. Red cloth with bright gilt titling on spine, No ownership inscription. Illustrations / Photographs / Map. 480 pages clean and tight. Mao Tse-tung was the most brilliant and controversial political figure of his century, and perhaps the most enigmatic. Dick Wilson has written the most detailed account of Mao's life to date, from his obscure beginnings as a peasant's son and his struggles to find an education; the humiliations and setbacks he encountered as a young activist looking - and even advertizing - for a cause, to the day he entered Peking to proclaim to China and to the world the beginning of a new order. In his twenty-seven years of power he was acclaimed by millions of his fellow Chinese as their symbol of national revival, their Red Sun, but his position was often tenuous. Behind the spectacle of public adulation with which we are familiar was the ever-present threat of political dissolution and the age-old pattern of Chinese politics-palace revolution, poisoning and violence; as late as 1971 Mao was forced to leave his quarters in Peking in order to ensure his personal safety. Mao's relations with his friends and his colleagues were rarely, especially in his later life, free from mistrust. The reminiscences of his wives, his friends, and those who knew him throughout his life have been used in this book to present a multi-faceted picture of the man behind the personality cult. His desire to seek power, and to hold it, took a considerable toll on his personal life: several of his children were lost in the upheavals, his first wife met a violent death, his second wife died reportedly insane, and one can only speculate about the fate of his third wife, Chiang Ching. Written with style and skill, the story that emerges is wide-ranging and thorough, bringing out more fully than in any previous account the character of a man who played the decisive role in shaping the destiny of one-quarter of mankind. Size: 8vo. Bookseller Inventory # 130209
