about

This work offers the most comprehensive account of the origin and consequences of the Yan'an Rectification Movement from 1942 to 1945. The author argues that this campaign emancipated the Chinese Communist Party from Soviet-influenced dogmatism and unified the Party, preparing it for the final victory against the Nationalist Party in 1949. More importantly, this monograph shows in great detail how Mao Zedong established his leadership through this party-wide political movement by means of aggressive intra-party purges, thought control, coercive cadre examinations, and total reorganizations of the Party's upper structure. The result of this movement not only set up the foundation for Mao's new China, but also deeply influenced the Chinese political structure today.

The Chinese version of How the Red Sun Rose was published in 2000, and has had nineteen printings since then.

Gao Hua (1954-2011) was a professor at Nanking University, and a leading historian of the Chinese Communist Party and 20th-century China.Stacy Mosher is an editor and translator based in Brooklyn, New York.Guo Jian is professor of English at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater.
