Farewell to the God of Plague reassesses the celebrated Maoist health care model through the lens of Mao’s famous campaign against snail fever. Using newly available archives, Miriam Gross documents how economic, political, and cultural realities led to grassroots resistance. Nonetheless, the campaign triumphed, but not because of its touted mass-prevention campaign. Instead, success came from its unacknowledged treatment arm, carried out jointly by banished urban doctors and rural educated youth. More broadly, the author reconsiders the relationship between science and political control during the ostensibly antiscientific Maoist era, discovering the important role of “grassroots science” in regime legitimation and Party control in rural areas.

Volume III contains extensive new documentation regarding Mao's military thought drawn from the six-volume edition of Mao's military writings recently issued in Beijing, much of it previously unavailable even in internal publications. This volume also contains significant information about the conflict between guerrilla war in the overall strategy of the Chinese revolution during the years 1928-1930. Among such items, Mao's reply of April 1929 to the criticisms leveled at him by the Central Committee is of particular interest. Texts from the Selected Works, with indications as to how the original versions were rewritten, include the Report on the Struggle in the Jinggangshan of November 1928, the Futian Resolution of December 1929, and the letter to Lin Biao of January 1930, otherwise known as A Single Spark Can Start a Praire Fire. A number of the rural social surveys which became so characteristic a feature of Mao's operations in the countryside also appear in this volume, which thus constitutes an important source book on local history, as well as on military and political developments.

Tibet has long fascinated the West, but what really lies beyond our romantic image of a mystical mountain kingdom of peace and spirituality? Patrick French set out to discover the truth, and his extraordinary account has been widely acclaimed. Travelling through the country, French meets exiled monks, nomads and a nun secretly fighting Chinese rule, but also young Tibetans with a more pragmatic attitude to their situation. Interweaving these encounters with little-known stories of war and turmoil from Tibet's past, he reveals a more nuanced, fascinating and surprising picture of this complex place than any other book has done.

“Spence draws upon his extensive knowledge of Chinese politics and culture to create an illuminating picture of Mao. . . . Superb.” (Chicago Tribune) From humble origins in the provinces, Mao Zedong rose to absolute power, unifying with an iron fist a vast country torn apart by years of weak leadership, colonialism, and war. This sharply drawn and insightful account brings to life this modern-day emperor and the tumultuous era that he did so much to shape. Jonathan Spence captures Mao in all his paradoxical grandeur and sheds light on the radical transformation he unleashed that still reverberates in China today.
