The tragedy of liberation : a history of the Chinese revolution, 1945-57

Dikotter, Frank2013
Books, Manuscripts
In 1949 Mao Zedong hoisted the red flag over Beijing's Forbidden City. Instead of liberating the country, the communists destroyed the old order and replaced it with a repressive system that would dominate every aspect of Chinese life. In an epic of revolution and violence which draws on newly opened party archives, interviews and memoirs, Frank Diko╠łtter interweaves the stories of millions of ordinary people with the brutal politics of Mao's court.
