Andrew Batson — Stalin and Mao are not making a comeback, but nationalism sure is

Good article on Russian and Chinese history relative to the administrations of Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping. Rather than rehabilitating Stalin and Mao, what is happening in the construction of a nationalist version of history much the same as America has made heroic figures of the leader responsible for Native American genocide and African slavery. Russia, China and America are not much different in this regard.
