Short biography
Edgar Snow is best known for his books and reporting on the Chinese Communist revolution. He was the first Western journalist to interview Mao Zedong and one of the first in the world to recognize Mao's importance as the leader of the Communist movement. Although as a journalist he was supposed to be objective, many believe he romanticized the Communist Chinese and presented only a sympathetic view of their activities.
