The Tragedy of Liberation: A History of the Chinese Revolution 1945-1957 – Frank Dikotter 2013

This is a new and well researched story about the revolution and the early years of rule by the communists in China.  It is a dramatic story of social upheaval and the subsequent transformation of hundreds of millions of lives through violence, intimidation and broken promises. The cruelty and unnecessary loss of life is staggering. This is another example of why single party governments always fail. Dikötter is an excellent author telling a frightening story of one the worst chapters in world history.
