Turbulent Decade: A History of the Cultural Revolution

By Yan Jiaqi; Gao Gao et al. | Go to book overview

Preface to the Revised Edition

Turbulent Decade: A History of the Cultural Revolution has been in print for two years. During this time, innumerable books and countless newspaper and journal articles concerning the Cultural Revolution have appeared in China, greatly increasing the historical data about the event. During these two years, we have received thousands of letters offering information about the event and valuable opinions intended to increase our historical knowledge of this cataclysmic event. Some of our close friends also gathered materials for us. All of these aided greatly in the revision of this work.

For this revision, aside from including a large quantity of historical materials, we also reexamined all historical events and incidents touched upon in the first edition and to the best of our ability pinpointed original sources and gave bibliographical citations. We have also given this historical event its proper theoretical analysis. This revision doubled the size of the first edition. Still, large amounts of interesting material had to be left out. We of course included many incidents spawned by the Cultural Revolution in the provinces, autonomous regions, and metropolitan areas outside Beijing, as well as events in such universities as Beijing, Qinghua, Beijing Normal, and Fudan, when they held national significance. Where the happenings in those local areas and units were not of national importance, we did not include them in this work. In the future, we hope to see not only more systematic studies of the Cultural Revolution but also works on important subjects such as Shanghai during the Cultural Revolution, the Cultural Revolution history of Beijing University, the Red Guard movement, the Great Networking, and the Rustication of Educated Youth movement.

During this revision, we wish to thank especially Zhang Jianbo, editor in chief of Hong Kong's Ming Bao Monthly, Professor Zhao Baoxu of the Contemporary China Institute of Beijing University, Professors Lin Hongliang and Wen Meihui of the Institute of Foreign Literature of the Chinese Academy of
