Mao : the unknown story by Jung Chang( Book )

47 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 3,309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on a decade of research and on interviews with many of Mao's close circle in China who have never talked before--and with virtually everyone outside China who had significant dealings with him--this is the most authoritative life of Mao ever written. It is full of startling revelations, exploding the myth of the Long March, and showing a completely unknown Mao: he was not driven by idealism or ideology; his intricate relationship with Stalin went back to the 1920s, ultimately bringing him to power; he welcomed the Japanese occupation; and he schemed, poisoned and blackmailed to get his way. After he conquered China in 1949, his secret goal was to dominate the world. He caused the deaths of 38 million people in the greatest famine in history. In all, well over 70 million Chinese perished under Mao's rule--in peacetime. This entirely fresh look at Mao will astonish historians and the general reader alike.--From publisher description

Mao : das Leben eines Mannes, das Schicksal eines Volkes by Jung Chang( Book )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in German and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mythos und Massenmörder - das Leben des Mao Tse-tung Es war nicht das Wohl seines Volkes, das Mao Tse-tung, dem Großen Vorsitzenden der Volksrepublik China, am Herzen lag. Es war auch nicht die kommunistische Ideologie, obwohl er ihren weltweiten Sieg anstrebte. Das Motiv von Maos Handeln war ausschließlich und zu jeder Zeit sein absoluter Wille zur Macht. Ob auf persönlicher, auf nationaler, auf internationaler Ebene - sein Machthunger war grenzenlos. Mao Tse-tung hat nicht alle, aber viele seiner Ziele erreicht, und China hat teuer dafür bezahlt: mit dem Leben von 70 Millionen Menschen. Nach ihrem Bestseller Wilde Schwäne legt Jung Chang mit "Mao" die bahnbrechende Biographie jenes Mannes vor, dem es gelang, sich zum Alleinherrscher über Hunderte Millionen Menschen aufzuschwingen. Jahrelange Archivrecherchen und zahllose Gespräche mit Zeitzeugen - mit Politikern in Ost und West, die mit Mao in Berührung gekommen waren, mit unbekannten Opfern ebenso wie mit Führungsfiguren aus Maos engsten Zirkeln, die sich nie zuvor geäußert hatten - haben die Autorin in die Lage versetzt, zum ersten Mal ein wahrheitsgetreues Bild der Mao-Ära zu zeichnen. Sie bringt die Wahrheit hinter zahlreichen, von den Kommunisten gehegten und gepflegten Mythen ans Licht und entlarvt viele, teils von Mao vorsätzlich und gekonnt verbreitete Falschdarstellungen. Jung Chang hat die letzten zwölf Jahre damit verbracht, allen Spuren dieses Menschen nachzugehen, der zu den einflussreichsten politischen Gestalten des 20. Jahrhunderts gehörte, dessen Aura Staatsmänner in aller Welt beeindruckte, und dessen Gedanken und Worte in millionenfacher Verbreitung in zahllosen Ländern auf Begeisterung stießen. Doch der Mann, den sie in ihrem Buch für den Leser lebendig werden lässt, weist ganz andere Züge auf - es sind sehr viel hässlichere. (Quelle: buchhandel.de)
