About the Book

Based mainly on unknown Russian archival sources which have previously been unobtainable, this book analyses the Bolshevik concepts of the Chinese revolution and their reception in China. Issues include the role of the three Bolshevik leaders, Lenin, Stalin, and Trotsky in trying to lead the Chinese Communists to victory, the real nature of the Trotsky-Stalin split in the Comintern, and a dramatic history of the Chinese Oppositionist movement in Soviet Russia.


'Alexander Pantsov is one of the most able scholars to have taken advantage of these new research opportunities, by exploitng masses of previously inaccessible Russian archival sources.' - International Review of Social History
