The Revolution of 1911

Peking: Foreign Languages Press, 1976. 174p., wraps, first edition. Eight pages of B&W photos, fold-out map.

Official Chinese Communist Party position as of 1976 on the uprising led by Hong Xiuquan, the self-proclaimed younger brother of Jesus, depicted here as a heroic proto-revolutionary without much religous content. The current official policy has reversed polarity, with those who suppressed the rebellion now depicted as heroes.
