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

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.
