Cambridge History of China: Volume 15, the People's Republic, Part 2, Revolutions Within the Chinese Revolution, 1966-1982 by Roderick MacFarquhar

Book Description

Volume 15 of The Cambridge History of China is the second of two volumes dealing with the People's Republic of China since its birth in 1949. The harbingers of the Cultural Revolution were analyzed in Volume 14 and Volume 15 traces a course of events still only partially understood by most Chinese. It begins by analysing the development of Mao's thought since the Communist seizure of power, and, in doing so, attempts to understand why he launched the movement. The contributors grapple with the conflict of evidence between what was said favourably about the Cultural Revolution at the time and the often diametrically opposed retrospective accounts. Volume 15, together with Volume 14, provides the most comprehensive and clearest account of how revolutionary China has developed in response to the upheavals initiated by Mao and Teng Hsiao-p'ing.

Books By Author Roderick MacFarquhar

Mao's Road to Power by Roderick MacFarquhar Mao's Road to Power, Hardback (September 2015)

This eighth volume covers the period 1942 to 1945 when Mao asserted his status as the incarnation and symbol of the Chinese Revolution and the sinification of Marxism-Leninism.

Politics of China by Roderick MacFarquhar Politics of China, Paperback (September 2011)

Tracks China's transformation from the establishment of the People's Republic to its rise as a superpower in the twenty-first century.

Mao's Last Revolution by Roderick MacFarquhar Mao's Last Revolution, Paperback (March 2008)

Explains why Mao launched the Cultural Revolution, and shows his Machiavellian role in masterminding it. This book documents the Hobbesian state that ensued. Power struggles raged among Lin Biao, Zhou Enlai, Deng Xiaoping, and Jiang Qing - Mao's wife and leader of the Gang of Four - while Mao often played one against the other.

Origins of the Cultural Revolution by Roderick MacFarquhar Origins of the Cultural Revolution, Paperback (November 1999)

This is the final volume in a now-classic trilogy that seeks an answer to this question as it examines the politics, economics, culture, and international relations of China from the mid-1950s to the mid 1960s. The Coming of the Cataclysm explores the important events leading up to the Cultural Revolution, and details the ways in which Mao continually tested the Chinese Communist Party.
