ABSTRACT
The article presents the book "Report on Mao's China," by Frank Moraes. Last year Moraes was invited as one of a group of Indian intellectuals to visit Mao Tse-tung's China and to study the progress of the Communist government. After his return he has written an extremely readable and in many ways brilliant eye-witness report which impresses at least this re- viewer as a fair and balanced judgment of a complex process shaping and changing the lives of 400 million people.
