From the Publisher"Lucien Bianco's study is the best single analysis that we have in such brief compass, not merely because is the most recent, but primarily because it is the most comprehensive, critical, and balanced. It is both a superb summary for beginners and at the same time presents interpretations that all scholars will have to consider."
—John K. Fairbank
,Journal of Asian Studies
"Professor Bianco's succinct, lucid, and penetrating study meets an urgent need in synthesizing [recent] studies into a new, broad, overview of the Chinese Communist path to power. . . . One also cannot fail to be impressed by the author's wit and wisdom, his humanity and honesty."
—Allen S. Whittig
,Problems of Communism
"An outstanding study of the pre-Communist period by an eminent French scholar who brings a refreshingly different perspective to the problems of the origin of the Chinese Revolution."
