Product Description

Review

A triumph. It is a mesmerising portrait of tyranny, degeneracy, mass murder and promiscuity, a barrage of revisionist bombshells, and a superb piece of research. (Simon Sebag Montefiore Sunday Times )

Decisive biography...they have investigated every aspect of his personal life and career, peeling back the layers of lies, myths, and what we used to think of as facts...what Chang and Halliday have done is immense and surpasses, as a biography, all that has gone before. (Jonathan Mirsky Independent )

The detail and documentation are awesome. The story that they tell, mesmerising in its horror, is the most powerful, compelling and revealing political biography of modern times. Few books are destined to change history, but this one will. (George Walden Daily Mail )

Ever since the spectacular success of Chang's Wild Swans, we have waited impatiently for her to complete with her husband this monumental study of China's most notorious modern leader. The expectation has been that she would rewrite modern Chinese history. The wait has been worthwhile and the expectation justified. This is a bombshell of a book. (Chris Patten The Times )

This book's strength is [Chang and Halliday's] understanding of the importance of bringing the human, or inhuman, alive in Mao's story. This, they do brilliantly. (Richard McGregor Financial Times 20050618)
