"[T]he book is splendid. Wortzel combines his expertise in Sinology with his meticulous attention to epistemology and methodology in studying the class structure and stratification in Maoist China, accomplishing the rare feat of freeing himself from ideologicalbias and parochial ethnic subjectivity. . . . It is indeed refreshing to read Wortzel's realistic book." Journal of Third World Studies
