Since the death of Chairman Mao in 1976, China has radically reformed. But the result has been uneven, creating real economic growth and global political influence, but also reinforcing the one-party state’s grip over its vast population. Launching his new book China After Mao, Hong Kong-based author and academic Frank Dikötter draws on a wealth of previously unseen archive material to present a mesmerising story of the transformation of China.
