font size    

A biography of late Chinese leader Mao Zedong, "Mao: A life" by famous English biographer Philip Short, has been translated into the Uygur language and will be published in June.

This is the first Uygur edition of books on Mao's biography, which will satisfy the interests of Uygur readers to know more about Mao, who was the founder and leader of the Communist Party of China and the People's Republic of China, said Abdurahman Abay, director of the Xinjiang People's Publishing House.

The Uygur edition of the biographies of other former Chinese leaders, such as Deng Xiaoping, Jiang Zeming and Hu Yaobang, will also be published with that of Mao, according to Abay.

The English edition of "Mao: a life" was first published in Britain, and its Chinese edition was published in 2004.

Home to 47 ethic groups, Northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region boasts a population of nearly nine million with the Uygur ethnic minority, accounting for 45 percent of the region's total.
