Description: Why did Mao Zedong launch the cultural revolution that almost destroyed all that he had worked so long and hard to create? The Origins of the Cultural Revolution: The Coming of the Cataclysm is the final volume in a trilogy which seeks an answer to this question as it examines the politics, economics, culture, and international relations of China from the mid-1950's to the mid-1960's.

The Coming of the Cataclysm begins with the catastrophic famine that-was the result of Mao's aggressive social and economic reforms, and the Communist Party's efforts to alleviate China's suffering, focusing on the growing rift between Mao and the Party over the use of 'capitalist' methods to solve the deepening crises. Drawing upon new evidence from Party reports, personal interviews, books, and journals, MacFarquhar chronicles the events leading up to the Cultural Revolution, from the Central Committee's Ninth Plenum, and the dissolution of the Yan'an Round Table to the fateful publication of the "Twenty-three Articles".
