The Chinese Revolution changed the face of the twentieth century, and the politics that issued from it - often referred to as 'Maoism' - resonated with colonised and oppressed people from the 1970s down to the anti-capitalist movements of today. Maoism and the Chinese Revolution offers the novice reader a sweeping overview of five decades of Maoist revolutionary history. It covers the early years of the Chinese Communist Party, through decades of guerrilla warfare and rapid industrialisation, to the massive upheavals of the Cultural Revolution.

"In "Maoism and the Chinese Revolution," Elliott Liu provides a dual service: first, he offers a critical history of Maoism that is both comprehensive and concise; second, he teases out the main lessons of that history and poses the question of how and what we are to learn from it. It is an auspicious beginning to a badly needed debate." --Andre Moncourt, coauthor of "The Red Army Faction: A Documentary History ""
