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

18 editions published between 1974 and 1983 in English and held by 1,393 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
Between two ages; America's role in the technetronic era by Zbigniew Brzezinski( Book )

14 editions published between 1970 and 1982 in English and held by 1,362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An attempt to define the meaning--within a dynamic framework--of the emerging global political process focuses on changes brought about by the increasing use of technology, especially electronic technology. The book is divided into five major parts. The first deals with the impact of the scientific-technological revolution on world affairs in general. The second part examines how this revolution has affected the content, the style, and format of man's political outlook on his global reality, with particular reference to the changing role of ideology. In the third part, the relevance of the philosophy of communism to the problems of modernity is assessed. The fourth part focuses on the United States and seeks to define the thrust of change and the historical meaning of the current American transition. The fifth part outlines in very broad terms the general directions that America might take in order to make an effective response to the previously discussed foreign and domestic dilemmas. The system of education suggested in this section includes the wide-spread use of technologies such as television and computers to provide continuous educational opportunities spread throughout a lifetime, rather than the present educational system which concentrates education into one time span and one locality.
