Mandate of Heaven: Marx and Mao in Modern China

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Nigel Harris's book on China was published in 1978, assessing the achievements thus far of a regime barely 30 years in existence. While China today is superficially unrecognizable in comparison to the period that Harris was analyzing, the foundation of the current society was laid in this period. Those interested in understanding how China went from one of the most underdeveloped countries to becoming better at capitalism than the most advanced economies would benefit from studying this period.

Recommended Books Available in the Haymarket Room:
The Mandate of Heaven: Marx and Mao in modern China by Nigel Harris
The Tragedy of the Chinese Revolution by Harold Isaacs
