Bo Xilai's fall raises questions about Chinese politics

Like many others in China, the family of the teenage Bo Xilai was torn apart in the Cultural Revolution. The bloody decade-long movement, launched in 1966 by the paranoia and plotting of Mao Zedong against "class enemies," left millions of people beaten, crippled or killed. Decades later, Bo stands accused of using techniques similar to those that brought ruin to his family to propel his own campaign for power in China's murky world of politics.
