Far East Reporter [59 different booklets]

New York: Far East Reporter / Maud Russell Publisher, various dates. Pamphlet. Fifty-nine booklets in the Far East Reporter series, which was edited and published by the American activist Maud Russell, who spent a quarter of a century in China before the Communist revolution of 1949 and spent the rest of her life advocating for the revolutionary regime. Each booklet focuses on a particular theme, printing pieces by pro-China hands such as Rewi Alley, Joseph Needham, Israel Epstein, William Hinton, Russell herself, and various Chinese authors whose work is reprinted from Chinese sources. Most are 5.5x8.5 inches, generally very good, some have minor soiling or wear, one is rather stained. Includes such titles as: An American soldier changes worlds: Life in China of an ex-prisoner of war; Building a socialist educational system in China; Chinese women: liberated; Insights on China (with photographs) during a 1972 visit; The Sino-Soviet Ussuri River border clash; and many more. Please see photos for all titles. Dates range from the 1950s to the 1970s, with most dating to the Cultural Revolution era.

Russell was not only a devoted advocate of Maoism, she was also a closeted lesbian. The executor of her will had her love letters destroyed when the rest of her papers were deposited at the NY Public Library. Karen Garner’s biography, “Precious Fire: Maud Russell and the Chinese Revolution” includes significant discussion of this issue.
