  • Timothy Cheek
Part of the The Bedford Series in History and Culture book series (BSHC)


This is one of Mao’s most famous essays. It sets out to describe the uprising among poor farmers in the counties outside Changsha, in the central province of Hunan, in the winter of 1926–27. The full text of this report was first published in a local CCP journal in March and April 1927. Mao’s intended audience was his fellow revolutionaries in the CCP and in the revolutionary wing of the GMD, or Nationalist Party.
