London Bloomsbury Publishing PLC 2010 Hard cover Very Good. 448 p. Illustrations, map. Between 1958 and 1962, China descended into hell as Mao Zedong threw his country into a frenzy with the Great Leap Forward, an attempt to overtake Britain in less than 15 years. This book shows that instead of lifting the country among the world's superpowers, in reality, the Great Leap Forward was a disastrous step in the opposite direction.
