Baker & Taylor Describes the ten-year period of the Cultural Revolution when strict Maoists and the Red Guard gained political control of China and many urban dwellers were forced into the countryside.
Capstone Pr Inc "On August 18, 1966, more than 1 million young people marched into the center of Beijing. They had come to answer the call of the country's leader, Chairman Mao Tse-tung. Mao had just launched the Cultural Revolution in China, an attack on anyone who seemed to be betraying communist ideals. The young people who came to Beijing carried Mao's violent message throughout the land. During the next three years, the Cultural Revolution brought chaos and bloodshed all around China."
Baker & Taylor Readers can follow the action as it unfolded in a series of narrated books that brings to life major events from history through first-hand accounts, quotes from participants, diagrams, photographs, and timelines.
