The Culture of Power: The Lin Biao Incident in the Cultural Revolution
Review"Jin Qiu presents a fascinating and detailed investigation of one of the stranger twists in modern Chinese political history, and as such it is a significant contribution to scholarship on the period." -- American Journal of Chinese Studies"In describing the political culture that produced Lin Biao, Jin Qiu accomplishes what very few Westerners could ever hope to: the construction of a nuanced and reasonably full-orbed cultural discussion of the texture and tenor of extra-institutional machinations, interpersonal relationships, family and inter-family dynamics, and even jealousies and superstitions that figured into decision-making and policy formulation." -- Canadian Journal of History"Highly recommended for all libraries." -- Library JournalOn the night of September 12-13, 1971, Lin Biao, Mao Zedong
