The communist movement was an international movement, the Chinese revolution was an international revolution. Most leading Chinese communists went abroad and many foreign communists and leftists went to China. The 200 individuals in this biographical dictionary provided the crucial link between revolutionary movements in China, Europe and America during the first half of the 20th century. This handbook covers Chinese communists who went to the West and Western (European and American) communists and leftists who went to China, among them Agnes Smedley, Edgar Snow and Anna Louise Strong. The book also includes many Chinese who played important roles in the international Communist movement as well as a large number of Chinese who went on to fill senior positions in the PRC. The volume is thus not just an historical dictionary but includes many representatives of the current leadership. This is an essential reference for students, libraries and researchers dealing with the history of modern China or the international Communist Movement.
