Overview

This pathbreaking study offers the first in-depth view of the urban revolution during the pivotal Nanjing Decade, refuting the notion that cities played only a supporting role in Mao Zedong's brilliant conquest of the countryside. Focusing on China's largest and most cosmopolitan city, Stranahan examines how the Party organization in Shanghai_severed from the central leadership and pursued by Guomindang and foreign authorities alike_survived through a flexible organizing strategy attuned to the changing local environment.
