Product description


Scoop of the century * Foreign Affairs * Irreplaceable... by far the most important single source regarding [Mao's] life * Stuart R. Schram * It truly was a book that shook the world. * China Daily * The remarkable thing about Red Star Over China was that it not only gave the first connected history of Mao and his colleagues and where they had come from, but it also gave a prospect of the future... This book has stood the test of time on both these counts - as a historical record and as an indication of a trend. * From the Introduction by John K. Fairbank *

Book Description

One of the most influential books on Western understanding and sympathy for Red China in the 1930s
