Mao Zedong: State and Social Movement Leader
More than any other political figure in history, Mao Zedong led his state in many ways as if it were still a revolutionary social and political movement. And his leadership did indeed kindle such movements as significant social and political forces, promoting genuine “uninterrupted revolution” even after the establishment of the People's Republic of China.
