Mao: The Unknown Story by Jung Chang and her husband Jon Halliday have spent the last ten years researching a biography of Mao Zedong.
Only just heard of the book from a friend, I am not surprised with what they boast " this book will shake the world and will help to shape China'. Is this true that whatever on that misterous history of Mao's regime will shake the world?
Among many authors who made their names known to the western world by writing on Chinese women's life story before and after the cultural revolution, Jung Chang obvious knows exactly what will sell in the west. I suspect the real reason behind her ten years research on this biography of Mao. Is this a book which will possiblly tell some truth, or it is just another gimmick of the fame hunters?
