Zhou Enlai, prime minister of the People's Republic of China from 1949 until 1976, has always been considered one of the more moderate, and most likable of China's leaders. Now a new book, Zhou Enlai's Later Years, debunks his legacy. It's banned in China. Hear NPR's Scott Simon and John Pomfret of The Washington Post.
