The origins of the Cultural Revolution by Roderick MacFarquhar( Book )

22 editions published between 1974 and 1983 in English and held by 1,425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the final volume in a trilogy that examines the politics, personalities, economics, culture, and international relations of China from the mid-1950s to the mid-1960s. It seeks to answer the central question: Why did Chairman Mao Zedong launch the Cultural Revolution (1966--76), which plunged China into chaos and almost destroyed its Communist Party? The Coming of the Cataclysm starts with the great famine of the early 1960s, which resulted in tens of millions of deaths and set in train a series of emergency measures that increasingly divided Mao from his comrades-in-arms. His anger that they were prepared to adopt "capitalist" methods to rescue the country was sharpened by his belief that Moscow had actually gone capitalist and sold out to the "imperialist" West. From 1961 to 1966, the period covered by this volume, the increasingly urgent question for Mao was how to prevent a similar revolutionary degeneration in China. The Cultural Revolution was his answer.Drawing upon new evidence from Party documents, personal interviews, books, and journals, MacFarquhar details the growing rift between Mao and his colleagues as they attempted to cope with domestic privation and an increasingly hostile international environment -- until the Chairman finally decided to smash the unity of the Yan'an Round Table by unleashing society against the party-state

The final confrontation : Japan's negotiations with the United States, 1941 by James William Morley( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This fifth and final volume of selected translations from Taiheiyo senso e no michi, available for the first time in English as Japan's Road to the Pacific War, covers the final negotiations between Japan and the United States which led to the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. Initiated over thirty years ago under the direction of Kamikawa Hikomatsu for the Japan Association on International Relations, Taiheiyo senso e no michi offered the most richly documented account available of the events which catapulted Japan into World War II. The original Japanese authors were given access to a wide range of primary materials, including not only those of the International Military Tribunal for the Far East, but also a number of previously unavailable documents from the former imperial army and navy, the Justice Ministry, and the Foreign Ministry. Also consulted were the private papers of Prime Ministers Konoe Fumimaro and Okada Keisuke, General Ugaki Kazushige, and Colonel Ishiwara Kanji. Key political and military leaders were interviewed as well
