A study of the activities, ideas and internal life of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in Shanghai during its formative period. It investigates the CCP's relations to the city's students and teachers, women, entrepreneurs, secret societies, and its workers, and examines the efforts to transform the CCP into a "Leninist" party, exploring relations between intellectuals and workers, men and women, Chinese and Russians, within the party. The book culminates in a detailed analysis of the three armed uprisings that led to the CCP's briefly taking power in March 1927, before being crushed by troops loyal to Chiang Kai-shek.
