Prophets Unarmed: Chinese Trotskyists in Revolution, War, Jail, and the Return from Limbo, by Gregor Benton

Prophets Unarmed: Chinese Trotskyists in Revolution, War, Jail, and the Return from Limbo, by Gregor Benton

€55.00 Sale price

Prophets Unarmed is an authoritative sourcebook on the Chinese Communist Party’s main early opposition, the Chinese Trotskyists.

Opposed from Moscow by Stalin, and by Chiang Kai-shek and Mao Zedong in China, the Trotskyists were China’s most persecuted political party.

Though harassed nearly out of existence their standpoints and proposals - reproduced here - are not without relevance to China’s present political moment.

Drawing on dozens of oral history interviews with survivors, this study of Chinese Trotskyism is exhaustive and groundbreaking.
