Stuart Reynolds Schram (February 27, 1924 – July 8, 2012) was an American physicist, political scientist and sinologist who specialized in the study of modern Chinese politics. He was particularly well known for his works on the life and thought of Mao Zedong. During the late 1950s he turned his attention to Chinese politics, and started to research on the primary sources. He focused his research on Chairman Mao, and by 1963 he had completed a book on the Political Thought of Mao Tse-tung. In 1966 Penguin Books published his seminal biography of Mao. These works made him prominent in the field of modern China studies. The School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) in London offered Schram a chair. Schram led establishment of the Contemporary China Institute and the continued development of journal, China Quarterly.
