"未來很長時間內將難以出現堪與本書媲美的作品"

─ 麥克法夸爾(Roderick MacFarquhar)

1949 年,毛澤東在內戰失敗的邊緣贏得勝利;七年後,他卻在勝利的邊緣一再遭遇慘敗。無論毛澤東想做什麼,他的初衷與事態的走向總是背道而馳,他的每一種對策,都導向更大的災難…原因何在?

本書以社會結構關係為主線,敘述1949–1976 年間毛澤東革命政權的興衰。這個時代既取得驚人的成就,也發生了史無前例的災難和動盪。原因錯綜複雜,然而高高在上、主導一切的正是毛澤東本人。

毛澤東的種種設想和指令,借助高度一致的共產黨組織體系與從蘇聯複製的社會主義經濟體制層層下發,在地方各級實施;同時也在這兩大體制架構下經歷了個放大、變形、歪曲,直至與毛的初衷相去甚遠的過程,常常帶來災難性的後果。
