It is difficult to assess the historical accuracy of Ling's narrative—indeed, of just about any personal account coming from this chaotic period—but fact or fiction, Revenge of Heaven remains a powerful and moving story of a young man's struggle for recognition in a world that seemed to be turned upside down. It has been aptly stated by one reviewer that "even if only half of what he says is true one would still be left with a shattering picture" (Colin MacKerras, Pacific Affairs 45.4, Winter 1972-1973, pp. 588). With its complex and soul-searching analysis, Ken Ling's book merits a place on any survey syllabus of the Cultural Revolution. --- Dahpon Ho
