    1. It is too soon to say Zhou Enlai, 1968, commenting on the significance of the French revolution This book is a great little panorama of Chinese society during the Cultural Revolution Decade 1966 76 The author doesn t pointlessly dwell on the Cultural Revolution s cruelties and other sensational aspects but, rather, soberly examines its lineages, practices, and legacies The picture that emerges is surprisingly paradoxical while the university system ground to a halt, enrollment in primary and sec [...]






    2. It is an interesting work, well written and on certain topics it is very strong, especially when discussing the culture Or ironically, often lack of of cultural revolution era China However the book is bought down, especially in its latter half, by its persistent apologism for the cultural revolution Deaths and destruction caused are mentioned but are largely glossed over and actions such as closing the universities are lauded for their Egalitarianism Improvements in living standards beyond the [...]


    3. filled with information that requires a background on China the Cold war chapter is great for those who wants to see the impact of it on China


    4. The book really exceeds expectations as a treatise on the Cultural Revolution By attempting to see things from different perspectives, it stands out from other mostly one sided western literature I ve read that deals with China s tumultuous decade from 1966 to 1976.





    5. Chinese Cultural Revolution is probably the most comprehensive and wide reaching attempt at total social engineering in history It was an attempt by the Chinese communist authorities to essentially uproot the three millennia of the national history and culture, and rebuild the whole society from scratch Needless to say, a program of such outsized scope and ambition required a lot force and violence in its implementation The violence was physical, psychological, and, as the name suggests, cultura [...]



    6. Kraus s introduction actually suffers slightly from the limitations of the very short introduction format given the sheer scale and internal contradictions of both the Cultural Revolution and the Deng reforms thereafter While hardly simplistic in its presentation, Kraus tries to stir his ship away from hagiography of the cultural revolution or just standard contempt While missing several key elements of ethnic tension of non Han ethnic groups within the cultural revolution, which is a significan [...]


    7. For a good overview of the Cultural Revolution in China, there could be worse places to start than this little book I admit, I don t know enough about it to understand it fully, although this helped There were several sections, dealing not just with the politics and economics, but the actual culture itself Not being an expert and actually, my key knowledge of this period is from reading Wild Swans Three Daughters of China, but it felt like this book was making it out to be a lot less horrific th [...]


    8. This was a very interesting book, my first proper foray into trying to understand this particular bit of modern history It wasn t especially well written, and it felt like it was trying to cram far too much into a very short introduction , but still, I finished it with a greater sense of what had taken place and some of the implications in present day dynamics I appreciated being given an overview, and the attempt to put events briefly into context with what was happening in the rest of the worl [...]


    9. An interesting little book casting a somewhat fair description of the Chinese Cultural Revolution Although constrained by its introductory nature, Kraus managed to connect as many dots as possible in order to make even the craziest things explainable Most scholars of the Cultural Revolution would agree that no single approach is sufficient The great political crisis of the early 1960s fed elite conflict, exacerbated social tensions, and pushed the nation apart from the rest of world society It s [...]


    10. The book gets 3 3 4 stars It is a good, slightly dry discussion of the CR The opening chapter, which covers the history of it, is excellent The following chapters are topical art, economy, foreign affairs, evaluation and are uneven The author has a slightly revisionist bent, trying to find the roots of Deng s opening inside the Cultural Revolution, but it is done with a light hand For a far richer, and really brilliant account of the Cultural Revolution, see John King Fairbank s remarkable Grea [...]


    11. A dispassionate look at a tumultuous time in Chinese history Laudably, Kraus neither vilifies nor glorifies the Cultural Revolution, rather treating it as a failed experiment that caused a great deal of suffering, injustice and hardship but also laid essential foundations in terms of human capital and infrastructure for China s rise as a modern, pseudo neoliberal state Those looking for an in depth look at the internal politics of the Cultural Revolution should look elsewhere, as Kraus prose ran [...]


    12. Two things to note about this book 1 Fails to adequately define what the name of its topic actually refers to, other than that it is A Very Important Episode In Modern Chinese History 2 The dry historical tone obscures the enormity of what was going on.Chapter 1 China s unfinished revolutionChapter 2 Politics in Command Chapter 3 Culture destroy the old, establish the new Chapter 4 An economy of self reliance Chapter 5 We have friends all over the world the Cultural Revolution s global contextCh [...]



    13. I had to read this book for my Modern Chinese History course It was a very dry book and I wish it had delved a little bit into the Cultural Revolution, as it had left out some important components of that time, but the book is supposed to be a comprehensive historical account of that period in China Nonetheless, it was an informative book that provided a great overview of such an influential time in Chinese history.


    14. I was a bit disappointed with this book I was hoping for a good narrative, but it was like a distillation of key events in the CR couched in academic jargon It even seemed to be an apology for Mao s various deeds As I got toward the end, he seemed to get better as far as indicting the stupidity of Mao s rule, but this hedging of the academic puts me off I like a good story So I ll have to try one of the many memoirs I guess.
