5.0 out of 5 stars a valuable alternative view of Chinese history, 20 Dec 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Tragedy of Liberation: A History of the Chinese Revolution 1945-1957 (Peoples Trilogy 2) (Hardcover)
Professor Frank Dikotter's books never let me down, and this one is no exception. The spellbinding narratives with solid evidence make this 300-page book remarkably reader-friendly. The academic value of this book is that it offers an alternative view to extant historical accounts of Chinese revolution from 1945 to 1957. This is a critical piece of work for people who want to know about China, who want to know more about Chinese history, and who want to understand how the revolutionary legacy from the past influences China's political culture today.
