«The Cultural Revolution: A People’s History 1962 – 1976» by Frank Dikötter

This volume about the cultural revolution is the third book by Frank Dikötter on the Mao era. Dikötter uses hundreds of previously classified party documents, from secret police reports to unexpurgated versions of leadership speeches, to put together his report. Dikötter’s «The Cultural Revolution» shows how economic reform from below could have been an unintended consequence of a decade of violent purges and entrenched fear.
