Zhou Enlai : a life / Chen Jian.

Chen, Jian, 1952- (author.).

Summary:

"Zhou Enlai, China's first premier, is overshadowed by Chairman Mao, but Zhou's influence in his own time and since has been vast. Chen Jian shows Zhou using his political and bureaucratic skills and centralism to mitigate the damage caused by Mao's radicalism and argues that Zhou created conditions for the post-Mao reforms that have made China a superpower."-- Provided by publisher.
