Demystifying Tibet : unlocking the secrets of the Land of the Snows by Lee Feigon( Book )

22 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in English and held by 855 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This authoritative view of the history and culture of Tibet comes at a time when this ancient land is in danger of losing its identity under Chinese rule. In a compact narrative account, Lee Feigon examines the country behind the myths to locate the origins of modern Tibet and to sort out its controversial relationship with China. In penetrating the veil of mystery that the West has often constructed over Tibet, he reveals how long and distinguished is its history and how recent is the idea that Tibet is part of China
Mao : a reinterpretation by Lee Feigon( Book )

14 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For many years now, historians and political observers have vilified Mao Zedong and placed him in a class with Hitler and Stalin as one of the twentieth century's most notorious tyrants. Mao's reputation first rose in the 1930s, when he was portrayed as a simple, uncorrupted populist hero. But with the triumph of communism in China after World War II, a disappointed Western public reinterpreted Mao as a godless Marxist. The real Mao, Lee Feigon suggests, was neither as smart and independent as earlier versions of him suggest, nor as evil as later interpretations have it." "In this revisionist appraisal of Mao, Mr. Feigon, an accomplished Asian historian, argues that the leader has been tainted by the actions and policies of the Soviet-style bureaucrats he came to hate and attempted to eliminate. Mr. Feigon suggests that the movements for which Mao is almost universally condemned today - the Great Leap Forward and especially the Cultural Revolution - were in many ways beneficial for the Chinese people: they forced China to break with its Stalinist past and paved the way for its great economic and political strides in recent years. "Without discounting the horrific damage done," Mr. Feigon writes, "one cannot overlook the positive impact of these movements, which gave birth to the present China - indeed, they are more responsible for China's change in recent years than its trade with the West.""--Jacket
The passion of the Mao( Visual )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An irreverent documentary that reexamines the Cultural Revolution and restores the once bright reputation of Mao Zedong. The Passion of the Mao manages at one and the same time to put a new twist on Mao's life, to mock the recent religious film by Mel Gibson, and to demonstrate how Mao's influence lingers
The passion of the Mao( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Who knew Communism could be so funny? This mapcap documentary begins by correcting misconceptions about Mao's early years and concludes with a new, mostly positive view of the Cultural Revolution."--Container
