Booknews
Surveys the main historical themes of Chinese Trotskyites, the first generation of Marxist dissidents in China, whose story is little known because of the fierce suppression by the state. Also summarizes the present state of knowledge on the basis of sources published in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and the west; of correspondence and interviews with knowledgeable people; and some newly available archival material. Over half the volume is composed of Zheng Chaolins memoirs finished in 1945 and published in 1979, interviews with Wang Fanxi, and biographical sketches. Annotation c.
