    In 1949, Mao Zedong hoisted the red flag over Beijing's Forbidden City and the People's Republic of China was born. The world watched as a communist revolution began to wash away the old order. Interweaving stories of ordinary citizens with tales of the brutal politics of Mao's court, Frank Dik├Âtter captures the cast of characters that shaped the country at this time, from Premier Zhou Enlai to the boss of Manchuria, Gao Gang, and the policies they implemented in the name of progress. He tells the frightening history of how Mao overturned the established system through Land Reform, forced labour, heavy taxation and even public execution, inspiring fear among the innocent population, before turning his eye to the party itself. This second chapter of The People's Trilogy reveals the true enemy of the people.
