      During his rule in the 2nd century BC, the First Emperor of a unified China famously quelled the intellectual diversity of his day by 'burning the books and burying the scholars'. This infamy would be decried throughout Chinese history until, in , Mao Zedong, founder of today’s People’s Republic of China, declared. A MERE 18 years after the death of Mao Zedong, it was possible for a notable Sinologist to give his book on Chinese reforms the title of “Burying Mao”.

The correct title in English could be either "burning of books and burying of scholars" or Great Confucian Purge, because the former is the translation of the well-known Chinese phrase referring to this event, and the latter seems to be one English-language reference. Personally I prefer the former as more vivid.
