Short Description

This work is vital reading for those wishing to gain a deeper understanding of the failed Chinese revolution of 1925-27, one of the most significant events of the twentieth century. Contains Trotsky's original introduction.

“Isaacs’ book represents a scientific work from beginning to end. It is based on a conscientious study of a vast number of original sources and supplementary material.… The author of this book tries to deduce the character of the Chinese Revolution not from a priori definitions and not from historical analogies, but from the living structure of Chinese society and from the dynamics of its inner forces.… The reader will carry away not only a better-knit picture of the march of events but—what is more important—will learn to understand their social mainsprings.” -- Leon Trotsky
