Book Re-Examines Zhou's Legacy in China

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.
