Volume III contains extensive new documentation regarding Mao's military thought drawn from the six-volume edition of Mao's military writings recently issued in Beijing, much of it previously unavailable even in internal publications. This volume also contains significant information about the conflict between guerrilla war in the overall strategy of the Chinese revolution during the years 1928-1930. Among such items, Mao's reply of April 1929 to the criticisms leveled at him by the Central Committee is of particular interest. Texts from the Selected Works, with indications as to how the original versions were rewritten, include the Report on the Struggle in the Jinggangshan of November 1928, the Futian Resolution of December 1929, and the letter to Lin Biao of January 1930, otherwise known as A Single Spark Can Start a Praire Fire. A number of the rural social surveys which became so characteristic a feature of Mao's operations in the countryside also appear in this volume, which thus constitutes an important source book on local history, as well as on military and political developments.

WINNER OF THE LOS ANGELES TIMES PRIZE FOR HISTORY FINANCIAL TIMES AND NEW STATESMAN BOOKS OF THE YEAR 2014 On the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War, Deluge is a powerful explanation of why the war's legacy continues to shape our world - from Adam Tooze, the Wolfson Prize-winning author of The Wages of Destruction In the depths of the Great War, with millions of dead and no imaginable end to the conflict, societies around the world began to buckle. As the cataclysmic battles continued, a new global order was being born. Adam Tooze's panoramic new book tells a radical, new story of the struggle for global mastery from the battles of the Western Front in 1916 to the Great Depression of the 1930s. The war shook the foundations of political and economic order across Eurasia. Empires that had lasted since the Middle Ages collapsed into ruins. New nations sprang up. Strikes, street-fighting and revolution convulsed much of the world. And beneath the surface turmoil, the war set in motion a deeper and more lasting shift, a transformation that continues to shape the present day: 1916 was the year when world affairs began to revolve around the United States. America was both a uniquely powerful global force: a force that was forward-looking, the focus of hope, money and ideas, and at the same time elusive, unpredictable and in fundamental respects unwilling to confront these unwished for responsibilities. Tooze shows how the fate of effectively the whole of civilization - the British Empire, the future of peace in Europe, the survival of the Weimar Republic, both the Russian and Chinese revolutions and stability in the Pacific - now came to revolve around this new power's fraught relationship with a shockingly changed world. The Deluge is both a brilliantly illuminating exploration of the past and an essential history for the present.
