4.0 out of 5 stars Lack of supportive evidence, but in fact most of the book said is TRUE, 1 Oct. 2011
By 
This review is from: Mao: The Unknown Story (Paperback)
I am sad that this book didn't create the impact it should have, as it suffers a lot from the lack of supportive evidence and almost one-sided narrative.

But I must say that a lot of details she got from interviews are NOT made up. They could be confirmed by many people who have lived through the same period.

I was born in former British colony Hong Kong. My parents both have experienced the great famine and cultural revolution. I have heard a lot about the fearful police state during that era, the lack of confidence among people, that everyone was possible to betray each other... My grand parents could confirm that communist had never tried to fight against the Japanese, they were only using the chance to grow their own power. Any people who escaped from communist China to Taiwan or Hong Kong can confirm you these facts.

Hong Kong citizens could tell you how badly the communist party is deteriorating Hong Kong's society and suppressing our freedom and democracy NOW. Since Hong Kong is ruled by China from 1997, they have been creating the kind of fearful police country. But these are seldom reported by international media. We are witnessing worse things happening gradually, with our rights taken away one by one. No one tries to stop China from violating human rights, because US needed China as their factory. It's horrible.
