Mao’s China and After

Mao’s China and After

In this much-anticipated revision, Maurice Meisner again provides piercing insight and comprehensive coverage of China’s fascinating and turbulent modern history.

In addition to new information provided throughout this classic study, the new Part Six, “Deng Xiaoping and the Origins of Chinese Capitalism: 1976-1998,” analyzes the country’s uneasy relationships with democracy, socialism, and capitalism. Meisner incisively displays the contrasts between China’s speech and actions regarding these subjects. Retaining the elegance, lucidity, fairness, insightfulness, and comprehensiveness he is known for, Meisner moves far beyond his previous work to paint a never-before-seen portrait of the political and social realities of China on the brink of the millennium, and the global implications of its rise to economic and political power.
