TRANSLATOR'S PREFACE
1.
[For the authors' own account of the writing of the work, see Yan Jiaqi, "Wenhuadageming shinianshi de chuangzuo guocheng" (The course of writing the Ten-Year History of the Great Cultural Revolution), Dangdai shishi zhoukan (Current events weekly), November 17, 1990, 24-25.]
2.
[For tradition of protest, see David S. Nivison, "Protest against Conventions and Conventions of Protest," in The Confucian Persuasion, ed. Arthur F. Wright (Stanford, Calif.: Stanford University Press, 1960), 177-201; D. W. Y. Kwok, "Protesting Tradition and Traditions of Protest," in Protest in the Chinese Tradi- tion, ed. D. W Y. Kwok, Center for Chinese Studies Occasional Papers, no. 2 (Honolulu: University of Hawai'i, 1989), 1-7; and Wm. Theodore de Bary, Wait- ing for the Dawn: A Plan for the Prince (New York: Columbia University Press, 1993).]
3.
[See an informative article by Michael Schoenhals, "Unofficial and Official Histories of the Cultural Revolution—A Review Article," Journal of Asian Studies 48, no. 3 (August 1989): 563-572. Schoenhals labels Yan and Gao's work as "unofficial history" but undervalues their sources for being mainly "Red Guard documents and the like" (565).]
4.
[See Yan Jiaqi, "The Course of Writing the Ten-Year History," 25.]
5.
[While the Chinese-language edition in Taiwan was authorized by Yan and Gao, they had been chided as having no "courage" in challenging the unautho- rized editions of the work published in Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan (English translation of the first edition). To this charge, Yan remarked that it was a matter of time and energy, rather than "courage." Ibid.]
6.
[This manuscript was published in Chinese in 1990 by Yuan Liou Publication Co. of Taipei. The present translation is from this edition, cross-checked with the manuscript. A one-volume English translation of the early two-volume edition was published by the Institute of Current Chinese Studies as no. 7 of its series in Taipei in 1988: Yen Chia-chi and Kao Kao, The Ten-Year History of the Chinese Cultural Revolution. ]
