About This Item
London : Weidenfeld & Nicolson, (1971). First British edition. "Jammed into the hundred-acre plaza of the Gate of Heavenly Peace one August morning in 1966 were over a million young Chinese. Their bright crimson armbands proclaimed them the Red Guard. They were waiting to see their leader, Mao Tse-tung, 'the red, red sun in our hearts', waiting for the words that would send them streaming out over China in an outbreak of destruction and terror stimulated by idealism, the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution". A detailed and penetrating history from the multiple award-winning Anglo-American author and journalist, head of the Hong Kong Bureau of the Los Angeles Times in the years that mattered, as well as advisor to Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger. Demy 8vo (23cm). xiv,478,[iv]pp. Original red boards, ruled and lettered in gilt; top edge pink; a touch bruised; some spotting of edges, but otherwise very good in the Keith Davis / Graham Berney dust-jacket - the jacket a touch dusty, lightly edge-worn, with a short tear to the upper panel, but complete and attractive still.
