This study attempts to place the development of Communism in China within the context of a long native tradition of peasant rebellion. Arguing that traditional Chinese thought is at odds with a Marxist ideology emphasizing struggle & conflict, Harrison seeks to deconstruct the historiography established by a communist interpretation of these rebellions. A very good copy, in dust jacket with light edge wear.
