Chinese communist leader Chairman Mao (Mao Zedong) died in 1976 but still leaves a lasting legacy in China.
He still seems well respected today, like with these framed pictures in a shop window.
These little red books of his writings are on every gift counter. Interesting enough, his teachings were collected by some people in the 1960s in the UK. Communism seems cool to some in the west, just like the Che Guevara t-shirts were popular with students in Britain for a while. This seems troubling.
