Does anyone notice that many of the 1-star reviews of Mao: The Untold Story have been given a ridiculous number of "helpful" votes? Is the People's Republic of China behind this drive?

Don't you think the People's Republic of China have better things to do than to rate book reviews on an english language shopping site?

More likely its from people getting over the book's promotion spree on talk shows and such and many people actually having read the book.

Cole, what is your problem? You seem to think that Mao was a very nice and loving and caring guy. Do you believe that he did some bad things in his life? Do you believe that WWII happened? Just saying...

I'm just sick of these US plants heaping propaganda and demonising Mao. The guy lead huge strides in improving the lives every day people in China; building infrastructure, improving life expectancy, literacy rates, agriculture, medical access.

CIA sell outs like Jung Chang betraying their own country, doing their best to ruin this great man's reputation, and the masses seemingly lapping it up, is a poignant reminder of how good America is with their hate mongering.

Yes, I also have a lot to thank Mao for. After all, nobody likes in-laws, and thanks to him I have four fewer than I would have. Thanks Mao!

Mark Ham says:
From the 1800's to 1949, "China" was a poor and divided country, "governed" in different regions by warlords that oppressed their peasant tenants, and simultaneously occupied by Western countries like Britain (read up on the Opium Wars), France, Germany, Japan, and U S missionaries, and her treasures pillaged by the 1% ruling class that escaped to Taiwan in 1949. Fast forward to per Cole's points
