This biography filled out many area of misunderstanding for me since Mao is a complex figure with the enormous vision that grass roots mobilisation of the proletariat could unify and re-dress the inequalities in China that all methods to achieve these aims were tried, by him, regardless of the human cost. So many of the reforms seem to have been beneficial - such as allowing women equality in the workforce but at every step there were disastrous ramifications. This book carefully explains how Mao managed to cause such havoc, hardship and ruin and yet remain a revered historical figure in China, by many, today.
