Zhou Enlai: A Political Life
This is a new biography on Zhou Enlai, one of the most important and yet debatable political figures in the Chinese Communist Party. Based on solid research and first-hand information obtained from official documents as well as from people who had long acquaintance with Zhou, the authors successfully give an in-depth analysis on the complex personality and controversial actions of Zhou, both as a person and a leader of the CCP. The analysis is insightful to the understanding of his political behaviour and, in particular, how such behaviour had played a crucial role in the course of contemporary Chinese history.
