Mao Zedong, Zhou Enlai and the Evolution of the Chinese Communist Leadership

Challenges long-established views that Mao Zedong became CCP leader during the Long March (1934-35) and that by 1935 the CCP was independent of the Comintern in Moscow. The result is a critique not only of official Chinese historiography but also of Western scholarship that all future China historians will need to take into account.
