Mao Tse-tung in the scales of history : a preliminary assessment by Dick Wilson( Book )

21 editions published between 1977 and 2010 in English and held by 1,226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mao Tse-tung was one of the most influential leaders of the twentieth century. In this 1977 book, eleven scholars renowned for their penetrating and lively analysis of Mao during his life, here make their assessments of his career and influence, after his death. They consider Mao's claims to be an original thinker; the practical side of his career; his ideas on education; his economic and international preoccupations; and his personality as a Chinese. Dick Wilson's introduction indicates some of the common themes, showing inter alia that Mao was neither as politically powerful, nor intellectually consistent and creative, as outsiders seem to have thought: that, on the contrary, his strength lay in his longevity, his concern for the methodology of social change, and those moral qualities that distinguished him. Very much of its time, this book will be essential reading for anyone wishing to assess China's political history

"Despite occasional outbursts of political fireworks, Thailand is moving steadily into the select league of Newly Industrialized Economies. Its struggles for democracy in the face of military ambition and its continuing economic miracle make it the country to watch in Southeast Asia."--BOOK JACKET. "The authors of Thailand's Turn conducted extensive research and scores of interviews (culminating in a long and highly illuminating audience with King Bhumiphol himself) for this searching analysis of Thailand's recent development. All the major factors contributing to Thailand's success are covered: the good fortune of avoiding colonization, the effect of Buddhism, the natural balance of political forces, and the development of sound economic policies. The Thai national character and the problems the country faces - environmental damage, income inequality, and the spread of AIDS - are also carefully considered."--BOOK JACKET. "Thailand's Turn holds the key to understanding Southeast Asia as it moves into the next century. It is an indispensable guide to the "Thai way" from politics to pleasure, from Buddhism to business."--BOOK JACKET

"Napoleon said that when the Chinese giant awoke, the world would tremble. Only now, nearly fifty years after the Communists seized power, is China beginning to stir from its slumber and look at itself, and the world in which it has the potential to play such an influential role, with truly modern eyes. China, The Big Tiger explains, in meticulous and compelling detail, why China's path to modernity has been such a tortuous process of introspection, idealism and destruction, illustrated by the Maoist regime's purging of the middle and professional classes in the 1950s and 1960s."--BOOK JACKET. "Set against the background of its rich and elusive history, with particular emphasis given to the regime of Deng Xiaoping, Wilson allows the reader to experience the essential character of modern Chinese life: its restlessness, vulnerability, newfound hope and spirit of enterprise. With poverty now giving way to a 10% economic growth rate and new openings in foreign trade and investment, he confidently predicts that when East Asia leads the world economically in twenty years' time, China will be leading East Asia. The twenty-first century is already being dubbed by some as 'China's century'. Wilson tracks the extraordinary success of the Overseas Chinese who will share in China's progress as the mainland increasingly integrates economically with Hong Kong, Taiwan and Chinese everywhere."--BOOK JACKET. "Yet if the West does tremble in the shadow of a stronger, ambitious China, then it has not dared to look behind its own prejudice and the secrecy that has for so long enshrouded the world's largest and most misunderstood nation. In China, The Big Tiger, Dick Wilson has stripped away the mystery as never before, showing a people and a country deserving of our courtesy, partnership and understanding at this most crucial time in its history."--BOOK JACKET

Nach der Kapitulation Japans 1945 zählte Hongkong 600.000 an der Armutsgrenze lebende Einwohner. 1990 weist die Statistik für eine zehnmal so große Bevölkerung einen durchschnittlichen Lebensstandard aus, der mit dem der südlichen EG-Mitgliedsländer vergleichbar ist und voraussichtlich demnächst höher als der Lebensstandard in Großbritannien liegen wird. Wilson, Korrespondent der "Financial Times" und Herausgeber von "China Quarterly" und "Far Eastern Economic Review", versucht in seiner Arbeit die Faktoren für Hongkongs Wirtschaftserfolg zu definieren. Ein abschließendes Kapitel beschäftigt sich mit den Zukunftsaussichten Hongkongs nach dessen Rückkehr unter die Oberhoheit Chinas im Jahre 1997. (Österreich. Forschungsstiftung f. Entwicklungshilfe)
