At various places in the book, the author brings out the continuing collaboration of Chiang Ching and the two revolutionary colleagues Chang Chun-chiao and Yao Wen-yuan from 1959 when she -initiated the revolution in the Shanghai theatre. Regarding family relationships, "some of the Chinese leaders became acquainted as young revolutionaries and married later, and others introduced their marriage partners into polities'' (p 221).

According to Ginneken, Chiang Ching, like Chen Po-ta and Liu Piao, couldhave been accused of being "Left in appearance but Right in essence".
