Summary Was Mao the first red emperor or the last great Marxist leader? Mao Zedong was held in awe by his people, seen by many as a supreme hero who had freed their country.

Michael Lynch presents a thorough account of Mao's life and politics, making use of a wealth of primary and secondary sources
