Описание: It is full of startling revelations, exploding the myth of the Long March, and showing a completely unknown Mao: he was not driven by idealism or ideology; his intimate and intricate relationship with Stalin went back to the 1920s, ultimately bringing him to power; he welcomed Japanese occupation of much of China; and he schemed,.

Описание: New York Times Book Review Editors' ChoiceA gripping narrative of the Truman Administration's response to the fall of Nationalist China and the triumph of Mao Zedong's Communist forces in 1949--an extraordinary political revolution that continues to shape East Asian politics to this day. In the opening months of 1949, U.S. President Harry S. Truman found himself faced with a looming diplomatic catastrophe--"perhaps the greatest that this country has ever suffered," as the journalist Walter Lippmann put it. Throughout the spring and summer, Mao Zedong's Communist armies fanned out across mainland China, annihilating the rival troops of America's one-time ally Chiang Kai-shek and taking control of Beijing, Shanghai, and other major cities. As Truman and his aides--including his shrewd, ruthless secretary of state, Dean Acheson--scrambled to formulate a response, they were forced to contend not only with Mao, but also with unrelenting political enemies at home. Over the course of this tumultuous year, Mao would fashion a new revolutionary government in Beijing, laying the foundation for the creation of modern China, while Chiang Kai-shek would flee to the island sanctuary of Taiwan. These events transformed American foreign policy--leading, ultimately, to decades of friction with Communist China, a long-standing U.S. commitment to Taiwan, and the subsequent wars in Korea and Vietnam. Drawing on Chinese and Russian sources, as well as recently declassified CIA documents, Kevin Peraino tells the story of this remarkable year through the eyes of the key players, including Mao Zedong, President Truman, Secretary of State Acheson, Minnesota congressman Walter Judd, and Madame Chiang Kai-shek, the influential first lady of the Republic of China. Today, the legacy of 1949 is more relevant than ever to the relationships between China, the United States, and the rest of the world, as Beijing asserts its claims in the South China Sea and tensions endure between Taiwan and the mainland.
Описание: When advertising legend Jim Riswold is stricken with leukemia and prostate cancer, he quits the business that made him famous to become a "fake artist," creating a controversial body of work with a controversial cast of characters, from Hitler to Mao to Kim Jong-Il. It was a decision that would save his life. The "Bo Knows" Nike campaign? That was Jim Riswold. Pairing Michael Jordan with Bugs Bunny? Jim Riswold's idea. Those "I Am Tiger Woods" ads? Riswold again. Jim Riswold is a rock star, a celebrity, a legend in the advertising world. And those outside that world might not know him by name, but they definitely have encountered his creative genius. Because Riswold has spent the last few decades making some of the most influential, quotable, and iconic advertising in American history--all while wondering if he would live to see another day. In Hitler Saved My Life, Riswold brilliantly combines incisive and funny essays with gorgeous and hilarious visuals to chronicle his battle with leukemia and prostate cancer and details how a post-diagnosis career transformation into a "fake artist" helped stave off death. And that fake art--inhabited by tyrants like Mao, Hitler, and Mussolini--has provoked a great deal of controversy. But as one critic noted, Riswold's work "teaches us how to deal with monsters, be it a Hitler or a deadly disease." His body has been ravaged by disease, but Riswold's mind is as sharp and brilliant as ever. From pitchman to philosopher artist: "selling people things they don't need to making things that people don't want."

China's Communist Party seized power in 1949 after a long period of guerrilla insurgency followed by full-scale war, but the Chinese revolution was just beginning. China Under Mao narrates the rise and fall of the Maoist revolutionary state from 1949 to 1976--an epoch of startling accomplishments and disastrous failures, steered by many forces but dominated above all by Mao Zedong.
"Walder convincingly shows that the effect of Maoist inequalities still distorts China today... It] will be a mind-opening book for many (and is a depressing reminder for others)." --Jonathan Mirsky, The Spectator
"Andrew Walder's account of Mao's time in power is detailed, sophisticated and powerful...Walder takes on many pieces of conventional wisdom about Mao's China and pulls them apart...What was it that led so much of China's population to follow Mao's orders, in effect to launch a civil war against his own party? There is still much more to understand about the bond between Mao and the wider population. As we try to understand that bond, there will be few better guides than Andrew Walder's book. Sober, measured, meticulous in every deadly detail, it is an essential assessment of one of the world's most important revolutions." --Rana Mitter, Times Literary Supplement

Описание: The eagerly-awaited new book by Denise Chong, author of the award-winning, national bestseller, The Concubine's Children. In her first book in a decade, beloved author Denise Chong, tells the story of a man who humiliated a repressive regime in front of the entire world, and whose daring gesture informs our view of human rights to this day. Despite his family's impeccable Communist roots, Lu Decheng, a small town bus mechanic, grew up intuiting all that was wrong with Mao's China. As a young man he believes truth and decency mattered, only to learn that preserving the Chairman's legacy mattered more. Lu's story reads like Shakespearean drama, peppered with defiance, love and betrayal. His steadfast refusal to acquiesce comes to a head, but not an end, with his infamous defacing of Mao's portrait during the 1989 protests in Tiananmen Square. From the Hardcover edition.
