Truly, the Pythons tried their best to make this book accessible to all manners of audience. All the better to make an extra pound or two. And so much more. More than you could ever imagine.

Although the members of Monty Python had encountered each other over the years, The Frost Report was the first time all the British members of Monty Python worked together.

His theories, military strategies, political policies are collectively known as Maoism. Mao was the son of a wealthy farmer in Hunan , he had a Chinese nationalist and anti-imperialist outlook early in his life, was influenced by the events of the Xinhai Revolution of and May Fourth Movement of In the following years he solidified his control through land reforms and through a psychological victory in the Korean War , as well as through campaigns against landlords, people he termed " counter-revolutionaries ", other perceived enemies of the state.

In , he launched a campaign known as the Great Leap Forward that aimed to transform China's economy from agrarian to industrial; this campaign led to the deadliest famine in history and the deaths of 20—45 million people between and In , Mao initiated the Cultural Revolution , a program to remove "counter-revolutionary" elements in Chinese society which lasted 10 years and was marked by violent class struggle, widespread destruction of cultural artifacts, an unprecedented elevation of Mao's cult of personality ; the program is now regarded as a "severe setback" for the PRC.

In , Mao welcomed U. President Richard Nixon in Beijing , signalling the start of a policy of opening China to the world. After years of ill health, Mao suffered a series of heart attacks in and died at the age of 82, he was succeeded as paramount leader by Premier Hua Guofeng , sidelined and replaced by Deng Xiaoping.

A controversial figure, Mao is regarded as one of the most important and influential individuals in modern world history, he is known as a political intellect, military strategist and visionary. Supporters credit him with driving imperialism out of China, modernising the nation and building it into a world power, promoting the status of women, improving education and health care, as well as increasing life expectancy as China's population grew from around million to over million under his leadership.

Conversely, his regime has been called autocratic and totalitarian , condemned for bringing about mass repression and destroying religious and cultural artifacts and sites, it was additionally responsible for vast numbers of deaths with estimates ranging from 30 to 70 million victims through starvation, prison labour and mass executions.

His father, Mao Yichang , was a impoverished peasant who had become one of the wealthiest farmers in Shaoshan. Growing up in rural Hunan, Mao described his father as a stern disciplinarian, who would beat him and his three siblings, the boys Zemin and Zetan , as well as an adopted girl, Zejian. Mao's mother, Wen Qimei , was a devout Buddhist.


Mao too abandoned this faith in his mid-teenage years. At age 8, Mao was sent to Shaoshan Primary School.

Learning the value systems of Confucianism , he admitted that he didn't enjoy the classical Chinese texts preaching Confucian morals, instead favouring popular novels like Romance of the Three Kingdoms and Water Margin. At age 13, Mao finished primary education, his father united him in an arranged marriage to the year-old Luo Yixiu , thereby uniting their land-owning families.

Mao refused to recognise her as his wife, becoming a fierce critic of arranged marriage and temporarily moving away. Luo was locally disgraced and died in While working on his father's farm, Mao read voraciously and developed a "political consciousness" from Zheng Guanying's booklet which lamented the deterioration of Chinese power and argued for the adoption of representative democracy.

Interested in history, Mao was inspired by the military prowess and nationalistic fervour of George Washington and Napoleon Bonaparte , his political views were shaped by Gelaohui-led protests which erupted following a famine in Changsha , the capital of Hunan.

The famine spread to Shaoshan, he claimed sympathy for their situation. At age 16, Mao moved to a higher primary school in nearby Dongshan, where he was bullied for his peasant background.

In , Mao began middle school in Changsha.

I'd like to be notified of new arrivals in the following categories.

Revolutionary sentiment was strong in the city, where there was widespread animosity towards Emperor Puyi's absolute monarchy and many were advocating republicanism ; the republicans' figurehead was Sun Yat-sen , an American-educated Christian who led the Tongmenghui society. Dissatisfied with their monaural BBC debut album the previous year, the group took full control of the follow-up, which would be the first release of a six-album deal with Charisma Records in the UK.

Most of the material is from the second series of Monty Python's Flying Circus , with only a few newly written pieces. One track, "Stake Your Claim", is an English language version of a sketch from the team's first German episode; the production, with its innovative use of stereo and sound effects, was handled by Terry Jones and Michael Palin and proved a technical challenge.

According to Jones: "We had this horrendous time because we were recording in this rather hippy recording studio which I can't remember the name of We were keen to use the stereo and everything, but what we hadn't realised was that the guy, doing the recording, who I think was out of his head most of the time, had not been making any notes.

We'd end up with tapes and tapes of material with no idea of where anything was on the tapes That was a bitter experience. Packaged as " Beethoven Symphony No. Included with the original LP were three card inserts printed with detailed instructions and cut-out props for the "Be A Great Actor" sketch on side 2.

Due to the limitations of the vinyl format, the original UK release had many sketches edited down while others, such as " Communist Quiz " and "Penguin On The TV", were omitted altogether causing a re-sequencing of the " Royal Festival Hall Concert" and " Spam " sketches; this truncated version was used for all UK cassette releases until As well as featuring a pared down track list, the original UK vinyl enjoyed two subtly different releases.

Initial pressings were issued on the pink "famous Charisma label" with subsequent pressings replacing this with the " Mad Hatter " label design.

Both editions featured a trick runout groove at the end of Side 1 where the sound of a record scratch is followed by Michael Palin's exclamation of "I scratched the record" repeated ad infinitum, at least until the listener chooses to lift the stylus off the vinyl; the album marked the group's first chart success.

Pressings were issued in a picture sleeve featuring a still from the "Dirty Fork" sketch from And Now For Something Completely Different; the CD reissue features four bonus tracks, although these date from the Contractual Obligation Album sessions.

They comprise a mixture of De Wolfe library music, self-penned Python songs and specially composed music by Fred Tomlinson.

The song has since been performed in several forms, including film, LP, each time started from a different skit. At an NPR interview in , Michael Palin stated the scene and the whole song were created in about 15 minutes, concluding a day's work, when the Python crew was stuck and unable to come up with a conclusion to the barbershop sketch that preceded it.

A year this single was reissued on 19 November as the first half of the double single release Python On Song. This version of the song has never been released on CD, although a remix containing alternate vocal takes from the session was included on the compilation album Monty Python Sings.

The common theme was of an average man who expresses dissatisfaction with his current job and announces, "I didn't want to be. I wanted to be Ripping off his coat to reveal a red flannel shirt, he walks over to a stage with a coniferous forest backdrop, he begins to sing about the wonders of being a lumberjack in British Columbia , he is unexpectedly backed up by a small choir of male singers, all dressed as Royal Canadian Mounted Police. In the original sketch from the programme and film version, the girl is played by Connie Booth , John Cleese's then-wife.

In the version from the film And Now For Something Completely Different , it follows on from the " Dead Parrot sketch " with Palin's character leaving the pet shop as Eric Praline asks "I'm sorry, this is irrelevant, isn't it? In the song, the Lumberjack recounts his daily tasks and his personal life, such as having buttered scones for tea, the Mountie chorus repeats his lines in sing-song fashion.Nov 21, David Stewart rated it it was amazing Shelves: According to Jones: "We had this horrendous time because we were recording in this rather hippy recording studio which I can't remember the name of Graham Chapman.

John Mullen rated it it was amazing Apr 08, The sketch premiered on 15 December as the final sketch of the 25th show of Monty Python's Flying Circus , the end credits for the episode were changed so every member of the crew has either Spam or some other food item from the menu added to their names.
