@Description Based on a decade of research and on interviews with many of Maos close circle in China who have never talked before V and with virtually everyone outside China who had significant dealings with him V this is the most authoritative life of Mao ever written. It is full of startling revelations, exploding the myth of the Long March, and showing a completely unknown Mao: he was not driven by idealism or ideology; his intimate and intricate relationship with Stalin went back to the 1920s, ultimately bringing him to power; he welcomed Japanese occupation of much of China; and he schemed, poisoned and blackmailed to get his way. This is an entirely fresh look at Mao in both content and approach. It will astonish historians and the general reader alike
