Few events of the 20th century have dramatically engulfed so large a proportion of humanity as China's Cultural Revolution (1966-1976). Amidst widespread violence and disorder, an estimated half-million Chinese died as a direct result. Yet this tumultuous period remains barely understood. MORNING SUN explores the historical and ethical questions raised by the Cultural Revolution.
