Mao and 'his close comrade-in-arms', vice-premier Lin Biao acclaimed by a crowd of Red Guards with Little Red Books. The Little Red Book, a collection of Mao quotations, is compiled by Lin Biao and printed in millions of copies. The small size makes it possible to have it at hand anytime and anywhere for consultation. The hysterical enthusiasm of the crowd on this poster is less exaggerated than one would think.
