Even as a Chinese living in the United States for more than thirty years, I don't that any words written by these authors should be believed.

I did not read the book. However, it's kind of silly to say Mao only cared for power. Otherwise he wouldn't have starved as a teenager going to schools that give him not much chance to make money, etc. He could have made profit from his family and be a powerful, rich peasant. Another thing is OF COURSE Mao wanted power, like ALL politicians (eg., George Bush, Jr or John F Kennedy.)! But to say he wanted solely power and not care about China is totally ludicrous. It's so easy to see that.

I agree...why are so many ppl denying the fact that millions of innocent ppl were massacred at the hands of Mao? I'm American, and I don't deny George Bush's bad presidency, nor Watergate, nor The Christian Crusades, nor 9/11. I do deny The Blair Witch Project, though. If just gives Wiccans a bad name.
