Description

La biograf�a definitiva de Mao Zedong.
Jung Chang y el historiador Jon Halliday, su marido, han escrito una biograf�a de Mao realmente sobrecogedora. Basada en diez a�os de investigaci�n y en las entrevistas realizadas a muchas de las figuras que se movieron en los c�rculos m�s cercanos a Mao -y que hasta ahora no hab�an hablado- y con casi todo aquel que, fuera de China, mantuvo alguna relaci�n significativa con el l�der chino, �sta es la biograf�a de Mao m�s seria y acreditada que se ha escrito.
Despu�s de conquistar China, a partir de 1949 Mao tuvo el secreto objetivo de dominar el mundo. En la persecuci�n de esta fantas�a caus� la muerte de 38 millones de personas en la mayor hambruna de la historia. En conjunto, bajo el gobierno de Mao perecieron, en tiempos de paz, m�s de 70 millones de seres humanos. La autora nos lleva a las sombr�as estancias de su corte y nos deja observar el drama hasta en los rincones m�s rec�nditos. La personalidad de Mao y su relaci�n con sus esposas, hijos y amantes salen a la luz por primera vez.

Rese�as:
�Pocos libros est�n destinados a cambiar la historia, pero este lo har�.�
George Walden, Daily Mail

�Jung Chang y Jon Halliday entran en una cr�tica salvaje que, bas�ndose en numeros�simas fuentes -incluidas las sovi�ticas-, acabar�n por barrer las miasmas de enga�o e ignorancia que todav�a envuelven la vida de Mao a los ojos de muchos ciudadanos occidentales.�
Max Hastings, Sunday Telegraph

�Una obra magistral. Esta magn�fica biograf�a destruye met�dicamente cada pilar de las reivindicaciones de Mao. Un logro.�
Nicholas D. Kristof, The New York Times Book Review

�Un triunfo. Un asombroso retrato de la tiran�a, la degeneraci�n, los asesinatos en masa y la promiscuidad, una bater�a de bombas para el revisionismo hist�rico y una soberbia pieza de investigaci�n. La primera biograf�a privada y pol�tica del mayor monstruo de los monstruos.�
Simon Sebag Montefiore, The Sunday Times

�Lo que Chang y Halliday han hecho es inmenso y sobrepasa, dentro del �mbito de las biograf�as, todo lo que se hab�a hecho anteriormente.�
Jonathan Mirsky, The Independent

�Chang y Halliday arrojan una luz nueva y reveladora sobre cada uno de los episodios de la tumultuosa vida de Mao. Un libro estupendo.�
Michael Yahuda, The Guardian

�Este libro es una bomba at�mica.�
Donald Morrison, Time

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

The most authoritative life of the Chinese leader every written, Mao: The Unknown Story is based on a decade of research, and on interviews with many of Mao's close circle in China who have never talked before -- and with virtually everyone outside China who had significant dealings with him. 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, poisoned, and blackmailed to get his way. After Mao conquered China in 1949, his secret goal was to dominate the world. In chasing this dream he caused the deaths of 38 million people in the greatest famine in history. In all, well over 70 million Chinese perished under Mao's rule -- in peacetime.
