This biography of Deng Tuo (1912-1966) is a social history of intellectuals as agents in China's socialist revolution. It places Deng Tuo's writings and ideas in the rich context of his social experience as a member of the Communist bureaucracy and as an elite artist and aesthete. The tension between service to politics and service to culture was ultimately disasterous for Deng and for China's revolution: his ghost haunts the halls of power in Beijing today.

Timothy Cheek is an Associate Professor of History at Colorado College.

Review:


"This volume contributes ably to the growing scholarship on the dynamics of Mao Zedong and the people and groups he considered to be his opponents. It especially advances our understanding of the role of the intelligentsia in Mao's new China."--China Review International


"This multilayered biography...offers a wealth of new insight into the complicated and ultimately tragic world of intellectual service in Mao Zedong's China....Cheek provides a compelling and nuanced understanding of both [subject and historical context]....this book will remain the most sophisticated attempt to discern the meaning of Deng Tuo's life of intellectual service to the party that eventually destroyed him."--American Historical Review


"This is an essential book for anyone interested in intellectuals in China. It is also a rich source of information about the development and operation of China's propaganda system and the way in which the media was used for political purposes as part of the ongoing power struggles in Mao's China. But most importantly, Cheek tells a fascinating and wonderfully researched story about a complex and interesting man whose life reflected in so many ways the political currents of his time. Cheek moves between these different dimensions of his narrative with skill and impressive control. I recommend this book highly. It is one of the best books I have read on China in recent years."--China Information


"Well-documented, clearly organized, carefully researched, and beautifully written, this book is a great contribution to the study of contemporary China generally and the study of the Chinese intellectuals in particular."--Journal of Asian History
