Based on newly available historical accounts from the Chinese communist Party, this book provides a new assessment of Lin Biao during the Cultural Revolution both as Mao’s designated successor and then as his purported mortal enemy. As a revisionist interpretation of one of the crucial developments in post-1949 Chinese political history, the text makes a critical evaluation of many assumptions concerning leadership conflict in the Mao era.
