Item description for Mao: La Historia Desconocida by Jung Chan...

Ten years of research have led the author of the best-selling classic Wild Swans, Jung Chang and her husband, historian Jon Halliday, to write what is considered today as the official and most comprehensive biography of Mao Tse-Tung written to date. Full of surprising revelations, this book presents a side of Mao unknown to this day a man who was not driven by ideology or idealism but by a secret thirst to dominate the world. The pursuit of his dream caused the death of 38 million people in the most devastating famine the world has seen. Ironically, more than 70 million people perished during the period of peace under Maos reign.

Description in Spanish: Cisnes salvajes, de Jung Chang, fue un extraordinario xito editorial, con diez millones de ejemplares vendidos, y se convirti en el libro sobre China ms ledo en todo el mundo. Ahora, Chang y el historiador Jon Halliday, su marido, han escrito una biografa de Mao realmente sobrecogedora.

Basada en diez aos de investigaciones y en las entrevistas realizadas a muchas de las figuras que se movieron en los crculos ms cercanos a Mao -y que hasta ahora no haban hablado- y con casi todo aquel que, fuera de China, mantuvo alguna relacin significativa con el lder chino, sta es la biografa de Mao ms seria y autorizada que se ha escrito. Est repleta de revelaciones sorprendentes, hace aicos el mito de la Larga Marcha y nos presenta a un Mao totalmente desconocido: no le impulsaban la ideologa ni el idealismo; su ntima e intrincada relacin con Stalin se remonta a los aos veinte y fue decisiva para alzarle al poder; salud con buenos ojos la ocupacin japonesa de buena parte de China; y labr su camino por medio de conjuras, chantajes y envenenamientos. Despus de conquistar China, a partir de 1949 tuvo el secreto objetivo de dominar el mundo. En la persecucin de esta fantasa caus la muerte de 38 millones de personas en la mayor hambruna de la historia. En conjunto, bajo el gobierno de Mao perecieron, en tiempos de paz, ms de 70 millones de seres humanos.
