'Deng Maomao writes with flair and insight about people and events long shrouded in mystery. With a great respect for China's history and the achievements of its leaders, she focuses on the first half of Deng's remarkable sixty-year career, from his birth in a village in Sichuan province and his education in France to his underground revolutionary work and his rise as a military commander, an important government official, and a key leader of the Communist Party.'
