Sun Yat-Sen His Life and Its Meaning: A Critical Biography

By Lyon Sharman | Go to book overview

For years Sun Yat-sen had been calling aloud for the employment of foreign experts to train the Chinese. The expert which he succeeded in attaching to himself was an "expert in revolution." How much of revolution China owes to that expert and his expertness, history will one day summarize in books. This is already clear: what looked at the time to be only expert advice in making a more coherent and effective party organization, has resulted in throwing the nation red-hot into a new pattern of government. The Russian-inspired propaganda against "foreign imperialism" -- effective as it was in 1925-27 -- has lost some of its force; the revolutionary army, into which the resentments of the propaganda were poured like an intoxicant, is now merged with other armies; peasant movements languish and labor movements mark time; but the party organization and the party policies which Borodin persuaded Sun Yat-sen to endorse are, for better or for worse, woven into the very fabric of China's national government.
