The Myth of Mao Zedong and Modern Insurgency

The Myth of Mao Zedong and Modern Insurgency by Francis Grice
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 224 Pages | ISBN : 3319775707 | 2.71 MB

Tackling one of the most prevalent myths about insurgencies, this book examines and rebuts the popular belief that Mao Zedong created a fundamentally new form of warfare that transformed the nature of modern insurgency. The labeling of an insurgent enemy as using “Maoist Warfare” has been a common phenomenon since Mao’s victory over the Guomindang in 1949, from Malaya and Vietnam during the Cold War to Afghanistan and Syria today. Yet, this practice is heavily flawed. This book argues that Mao did not invent a new breed of insurgency, failed to produce a coherent vision of how insurgencies should be fought, and was not influential in his impact upon subsequent insurgencies. Consequently, Mao’s writings cannot be used to generate meaningful insights for understanding those insurgencies that came after him. This means that scholars and policymakers should stop using Mao as a tool for understanding insurgencies and as a straw man against whom to target counterinsurgency strategies.

Mao’s Images: Artists and China’s 1949 transition

Mao’s Images: Artists and China’s 1949 transition By Yan Geng
English | PDF | 2018 | 234 Pages | ISBN : 3658208244 | 18.63 MB

In this book, Yan Geng examines Mao’s image from the perspective of its producers, focusing on four artists, chosen for both the diverse media they worked in and their diverse backgrounds. The book suggests an alternative perspective on the making of propaganda not only as a politically themed representation but also as an expression of artists’ subjectivities and their roles as pivotal agents in the transition of modern Chinese art history. Mao’s Image: Artists and China’s 1949 Transition demonstrates how artists portrayed Mao as the nation’s leader during the early People’s Republic and what such images reveal about Chinese artists’ experience during the Communist takeover of the country.
