This huge biography of Mao, the work of a married couple formed by a writer and a historian, aims to present itself as an essential book about the founder of the Chinese communist regime. It is in terms of the documentation handled and the interviews conducted by the authors, although it has numerous literary features that try to delve into Mao’s psychology, which offers a portrait of a ruthless and thirsty leader of power.

An ambitious nonfiction work whose first two titles have sold 200 thousand copies to date; something completely atypical in a market like Chile. And that now closes with the arrival of the third installment to the national bookstores, with a first edition of 30 thousand copies, edited by Sudamericana.
A literary adventure that left no one indifferent and that more than once earned him harsh criticism. Some people do not understand that raising different points of view is not ‘destroy our values and our heroes’, but open the discussion, review and reflection on aspects not very touched massively and urgently need to be put on the table to understand each other better That there is a debt between our history and ordinary people, a distance that is urgent to shorten, says Baradit.History is political, it must be constantly discussed and reviewed, it is not written in marble and it is always changing with new research and discoveries, it is essential that it be on our contingent discussion table because it is finally reflected and it is about today, adds .
