nyt's review of the mao book that kristof also wrote about.
now when will we get similar books laying out the gory secrets of india's own deified monsters? of course i must not name names but you know who i am talking about :-)
actually the information is out there but we've been fed with so much disinformation that the mythology has overtaken the truth. mythology has become truth through continuous propaganda.
and truth has been turned into mythology, for which worthies get honorary phds from oxbridge.
