"In this succinct and compact narrative of Mao's personal and intellectual development, Rebecca Karl offers an impressive exposition of the formation and evolution of the theory and practice of the Chinese Revolution. Her analysis of ideological tenets in China's revolutionary movement is convincing and more sophisticated than other narratives of Mao's life and thought."--Ban Wang, author of Illuminations from the Past: Trauma, Memory, and History in Modern China "Rebecca Karl has written a lively, readable account of Mao's life and thought, showing how they fit into and affected the twentieth-century world."--Delia Davin, author of Mao Zedong: A Life
