Topic: Part Tiger, Part Monkey: Mao Zedong and China’s Destiny

How do we understand the behaviors and motivations of Mao Zedong, who was at the same time the founder of PRC China and a totalitarian leader responsible for millions of deaths? In a letter to his wife Jiang Qing on 6 July 1968, Mao characterized himself as "having both some of the spirit of the tiger which is dominant, but also some of the spirit of the monkey which is secondary."

Using Mao’s famous self-commentary “part tiger, part monkey,” Prof. Alain Roux will tell us how Mao, an ambitious young man, grew from a rebel to a revolutionary, and later a tyrant during the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution. Based on his lifetime research of Mao and 20th-century Chinese history, Prof. Roux will offer a reliable, convincing, and sophisticated biography of Mao, and share with us his perspectives on China today.
