Product description

Review

"A landmark work giving a global panorama of Mao's ideology filled with historic events and enlivened by striking characters." (Jonathan Fenby, author of The Penguin History of Modern China)

"Julia Lovell has given us a masterful corrective to the greatest misconception about today’s China. For too long, visitors who marveled at China’s new luxuries and capitalist zeal assumed that Maoism had gone the way of its creator. That was a mistake. Lovell’s account -- eloquent, engrossing, intelligent -- not only explains why Xi Jinping has revived some of Mao’s techniques, but also why Mao's playbook for the “People’s War” retains an intoxicating and tragic appeal to marginalized people the world over." (Evan Osnos, author of The Age of Ambition)

"Lovell takes us on an exhilarating journey, tracing the spread of Maoist theories across South-east Asia and then Africa, ending up in today’s China… The historical sweep of this book is impressive" (Christopher Coker Literary Review)

"Revelatory and instructive… [a] beautifully written and accessible book" (David Aaronovitch The Times)

"Lovell has produced a work which may well be the most harrowing, fascinating and occasionally hilarious book on the subject thus far" (Stuart Kelly Scotland on Sunday)

Book Description

The first global history of Maosim that explores Maos' life, ideas, influence and legacy as a power that shaped the world well beyond the borders of China.
