Labor and the Chinese Revolution: Class Strategies and Contradictions of Chinese Communism, 1928–1948S. Bernard Thomas 1983 Open access edition funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities / Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Humanities Open Book Program
In the two-decade period from 1928 to 1948, the proletarian themes and issues underlying the Chinese Communist Party's ideological utterances were shrouded in rhetoric designed, perhaps, as much to disguise as to chart actual class strategies. Rhetoric notwithstanding, a careful analysis of such pronouncements is vitally important in following and evaluating the party's changing lines during this key revolutionary period. The function of the "proletariat" in the complex of policy issues and leadership struggles which developed under the precarious circumstances of those years had an importance out of all proportion to labor's relatively minor role in the post-1927 Communist led revolution.
