Even fewer unabashedly and excitedly espouse the political ideology of Chinese dictator Mao Zedong. But that’s just what Bob Avakian does in his memoir “From Ike to Mao and Beyond.”. Book release event "From Ike to Mao and Beyond," a memoir by Bob Avakian, 7 p.m. May 6, King Middle School, Rose St. (at Grant), Berkeley. () The book is available at independent bookstores and through the publisher, Insight Press, at Contact Rick DelVecchio at [email protected] Page F - 5.

  For even cursory students of the s, Evan Thomas’ new book, “Ike’s Bluff: President Eisenhower’s Secret Battle to Save the World,” offers little in the way of fresh material.   Every Chinese received a copy of Mao's Little Red Book of quotations, which had to be carried and brandished on all public occasions. In effect, Maoism became the compulsory state religion. The first agents Mao used to terrorize society in were young people in schools and universities.

In his book The Tragedy of Liberation: A History of the Chinese Revolution, –, he exposes once and for all that the Communist takeover of China just expressed Mao’s murderous instincts. Spence's major focus is this remarkable ascension to power, so readers who want to learn more specifics about the Cultural Revolution, for example, or Mao's later life and death will be disappointed. However, this book's inclusion in the Penguin series indicates that it is an respectable resource. Mao was not born among the poorest Chinese.
