George Urban (editor) - The Miracles of Chairman Mao: A Compendium of Devotional Literature, 1966-1970

Los Angeles: Nash Publishing, 1971. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. 8vo. 182 pp. Green cloth binding. Good condition. Former owner's name on front free endpaper in red ink, otherwise clean interior. Dust jacket has a bit of edge-wear (see photos). The 'Miracles' of Chairman Mao refer to the supernatural or motivational feats which the leader allegedly performed as regularly reported by the official Chinese press. Although these miracles are conveyed in the format of proverbs or anecdotes illustrating ideological principles (self-abnegation, frugality, sacrifice, etc.) Mao himself always plays the decisive causal role, whether it's giving lessons on table tennis or inspiring peasants to smelt more iron.
