Reviews

For years, Maoist China was opaque from the outside interpretable only by what a trickle of refugees said or by inference from government references to the masses. That bland term is now passe, but the Western tendency to homogenize the common folk of China persists, especially in fields related to international relations, where scholars and journalists casually refer to the Chinese as if government rhetoric described everyone. Maoism at the Grassroots is a magnificent antidote to this bad habit.--Perry Link, author of An Anatomy of Chinese: Rhythm, Metaphor, Politics


A new generation of Chinese and Western scholars is enriching the history of Mao Zedong s China with material from discarded personnel files, diaries, and unpublished manuscripts purchased from paper recyclers, as well as from recently opened local archives. Their view from below challenges the cliched images of regimented masses fanatically loyal to the revolution.--Andrew J. Nathan Foreign Affairs (02/10/2016)
