Revolutionary Discourse in Mao's RepublicBook - 1994
What does the Chinese Communist revolution teach us about the relationship between political discourse and real experiences and events? This interpretation of the revolutionary process in China uses empirical evidence as well as concepts from contemporary cultural studies to probe this significant question. David Apter and Tony Saich base their analysis on recently available primary sources on party history, English- and Chinese-language accounts of the Long March and Yan'an period, and interviews with veterans and their relatives.
