Mao's China and After: A History of the People's Republic - Maurice Meisner.

Fantastic in-depth critical history of the failure of China's 'transition to socialism', analysing the degree to which it lived up to its egalitarian rhetoric as it navigated the uneasy relationships between democracy and bureaucracy, socialism and capitalism.

I was part of a reading group that read this book earlier this year. Its a very interesting read and its handling of Chinese Communism and how each of the CPC's turns is justified very interesting.
