    I just finished reading this balanced and refreshing review of Chiang’s life. Perhaps the rumor mongering of Sterling Seagrave’s “The Soong Dynasty” will be swept aside once and for all. I’d be curious to hear what Jay Taylor has to say about that book, as well as the influential anti-KMT writings of American Sinologist John Fairbank.

    I read this book on Chaing and loved it: objective and full of verifiable information. I’m having a harder time finding an objective (and well researched) biography of Mao and would love any suggestions you may have.

    Thanks for the comment. I suggest you read: Mao Zedong: A Political and Intellectual Portrait by Maurice Meisner, and Jonathan Spence: MAo Zedong, A Life.
