Summary
  • Presents a revised account of the revolution of 1966-1969 - Examines the social and political consequences of the upheaval - Deng Xiaoping - Democracy movement - Tienamnen Incident - Mao Zedong - The hundred flowers - Great Leap Forward
  • "In the decade since the death of Mao Zedong, the People's Republic of China has been swept by dramatic political, social, and economic changes. Now, Maurice Meisner has perceptively updated his widely-acclaimed book, Mao's china--considered the classic study of the Chinese Revolution since its original publication in 1977. Based on a wealth of previously unavailable data, Meisner presents a completely revised account of the now-repudiated Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution of 1966-1969, in which he examines the social consequences of this violent upheaval and traces it political legacy from the fall of Lin Biao to the demise of the Gang of Four. And, in a completely new section, Meisner examines the post-Mao era up to 1984, including the ascendancy of Deng Xiaoping and the institutionalization of his new order, the rise and fall of the Democracy Movement, and the Chinese Communist Party's reassessment of Mao and Maoism. In addition, Mao's China and After contains a critical interpretation of post-Maoist economic reforms and the continuing challenges China and its new leaders face in reconciling socialism and modernization."--Publisher's description
