How does a cult of personality begin – and how does it sustain itself? How do tyrants create the illusion of popular support – and what do they fear most?
Frank Dikötter, author of Mao’s Great Famine, is in conversation with The Spectator’s literary editor, Sam Leith. This event will be recorded and released as a special edition of Sam Leith’s Spectator Books podcast.
