Jung Chang and Jon Halliday: Mao: The Unknown Story

A lost opportunity if there has ever been one. With her 'Wild Swans' reputation Jung Chang had access to many in China who would have never talked otherwise. But her hatred for Mao seems to dictate just about every sentence and everything seems twisted to shed the worst possible light on the 'great helmsman'. Less bias could have made it a great study rather than scar-literature in disguise of a biography.
