Summary
The Chinese Communist party refers to its victory in 1949 as a "liberation," but the story of the revolution that followed is not one of peace, liberty, and justice. It is first and foremost a story of calculated terror and systematic violence. This is a chronicle of Mao Zedong's ascension and campaign to transform the Chinese into what the party called New People
