Mao's Great Famine
Frank Dikotter takes a new look at Mao’s Great Leap Forward (1958-62), using the recently opened Communist Party archives. Professor Dikotter says that between those years, at least 45 million Chinese were killed and the experiment was a colossal failure. He spoke at the Asia Society in New York City. He read from his book and then was interviewed by Susan Jakes. He also responded to questions from members of the audience. close
