Suppression and thaw have marked the course of communism in China. Merle Goldman traces that shifting pattern over the last decades of Mao’s regime, linking it to the unique role of the intellectual in government. Her engrossing account of the relations between the intellectuals and the governing elites provides a map of understanding to some recent events in the turbulent history of the People’s Republic.
