Quotations from Chairman Mao Tse-Tung

There were 700 million of these little red books printed during Chinas Cultural Revolution! People used to carry them around as protection from persecution. This one is in English, 1966 edition, 311 pages of wisdom. Some of the quotations were dated and Mao at the time would not approve. The real purpose of the book was as a tool by Lin Bio, to bring Mao down from ultimate political power.

A fascinating read - and a springboard to many a revolution! Book measures 5 x 3 1/2 x 3/4-inch.

Some quotes from the book are:
"Political power grows from the barrel of a gun”
“The richest source of power to wage war lies in the masses”
“We don’t want to fight even for a single day. But if circumstances force us to fight, we can fight to the finish”

Against all the odds, Mao succeeded in taking rule of China. Read an insight how.
