    Before Mao: The Untold Story Of Li Lisan And The Creation Of Communist China

    By: Patrick Lescot

    Date Released

    Out of Print

    The first biography of Li Lisan, the first head of China's Communist Party, whose fiery independence led to forced exile under Stalin and eventual execution at the hands of Mao.

    Combining an exceptional love story with a gripping tale of incarceration in Stalin's gulag and later in Mao's concentration camps, Patrick Lescot's 'Before Mao' is a deeply moving, beautifully told saga of Li Lisan, Mao's predecessor at the head of the Communist Party, a key member of the Russian and Chinese revolutions.

    Told in an engaging, highly dramatic style that reads more like a novel than a standard history, Lescot skilfully unfolds this page-turning biography.
