The book The Unknown Story: Mao is fascinating. I highly recommend it. It is by Jung Chang who wrote Wild Swans and Jon Halliday. They have done incredible research to debunk the myths Mao created in his stories to Edgar Snow. Mao was unscrupulous beyond imagining, sacrificing, his wives, children, and other people for his own ambitions. He was it, as to what mattered, and raised a peasant, he lived in immense luxury from the beginning of his climb. He never had any intention of helping peasants or anyone. All was about him. It is a fascinating read and I am well brought into the book now and grabbing my moments to continue.
Happy Father's Day weekend! It is a lovely weekend to sink.
