Mao Zedong's Cultural Revolution
The Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution
Both the Communist Party and the Guomindang (Nationalist) Party were created around 1920 and had a socialist orientation.
The Guomindang although it had a socialist orientation was primarily concerned with establishing a nation state.
This meant suppressing the numerous warlords and uniting China.
The Guomindang needed financial aid to achieve this and it was not going to get such aid from the imperialist powers.
The founder and leader of the Guomindang, Sun Yatsen, sought and received aid from the Soviet Union.
The Soviet Union not only sent material aid, it also sent advisors, Michael Borodin and Otto Braun.
The latter was a German Communist representing the Communist International, the Comintern.
The Soviet Union also required that the Guomindang admit to its membership the members of the Communist Party of China.
This book explores The Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution Launched by Mao Zedong, the Chairman of the Communist Party of China (CPC), its stated goal was to preserve Chinese Communism by purging remnants of capitalist and traditional elements from Chinese society.
