Summary
In the summer of 1976, Mao lay dying, and China was struck by a great natural disaster. The earthquake that struck Tangshan was one of the worst in recorded history, killing half a million people. But the Chinese Communist rulers in Beijing were distracted, paralysed by in-fighting over who would take control after Mao finally died
