The second edition of this best-selling title has been revised and updated to reflect the needs of the current specifications. The title charts China's remarkable and tumultuous development from the establishment of the People's Republic in 1949 to Mao's death in 1976. The book examines the widespread social and economic change that resulted from the Communist revolution, including the changes to agriculture, the five-year plans and the hundred-flowers campaign. It then goes on to look at the reasons for the Cultural Revolution and its legacy. In addition the author analyzes Mao's status as a political leader and his importance in the domestic developments of China from 1949 to 76. Throughout the book, key dates, terms and issues are highlighted, and historical interpretations of key debates are outlined. Summary diagrams are included to consolidate knowledge and understanding of the period, and exam-style questions and tips for each examination board provide the opportunity to develop exam skills.
