'Informative, varied and engaging.'
The East Asia Book Review
'The resurgence of neo-Maoism in China is by turns fascinating, puzzling, and disturbing. China and the New Maoists is a lucid and absorbing account of the Party’s fumbling attempts, in the authors’ words, to "extricate itself from the quagmire of neo-Maoism".'
Andrew G. Walder, author of China Under Mao: A Revolution Derailed
'An extraordinarily concise, informative and insightful account of the legacies of Mao Zedong for contemporary China. Brown and van Nieuwenhuizen have written an essential guide to one of the key political, cultural, social and economic conundrums of China today.'
Julia Lovell, author of The Opium War: Drugs, Dreams and the Making of China
'An engaging and revealing look at how the battles over Mao's legacy have shaped politics in China for the better part of a century – and could define its future.'
Philip Pan, author of Out of Mao's Shadow and Asia editor of The New York Times
