Background: Quotations by Mao Zedong is the second most printed book in history (behind the Bible). There have been an estimated 1 billion copies printed. Most of them were produced in small pocket-sized formats with red covers. Therefore, Americans called it “The Little Red Book”. As the title suggests, this book is simply a collection of quotations from the leader, arranged by topic. The 1964 edition had 23 topics and 200 quotations. But the final 1965 version had 33 topics and 427 quotations. This document contains one relevant quotation from each of the 33 topics of the book.
