1966 - 1972 ORIGINAL COMMUNIST CADRE'S HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT DIARY AND JOURNAL DETAILING THE BEGINNING, MIDDLE AND END OF MAO ZEDONG'S CULTURAL REVOLUTION FOR ONE CHINESE VILLAGE1554
On offer is a significant, historic, original manuscript relic of the Cultural Revolution era in People's Republic of China. The 250+ page village Cadre log book is dated through 1966 - 1972, peak time of Mao Zedong's push to change the face and fabric of China. As one online source succinctly sums up the times: "People's Republic of China from 1966 through 1976. Set into motion by Mao Zedong, then Chairman of the Communist Party of China, its stated goal was to enforce socialism in the country by removing capitalist, traditional and cultural elements from Chinese society, and impose Maoist orthodoxy within the Party. The most important, yet naturally unstated, reason for the revolution was the return of Mao Zedong to a position of political power, after he lost most of his political influence after his failed Great leap forward." This log book was faithfully filled much like a diary or journal recording this village's work efforts and output, notes on meetings, political movement affairs, critical notes +++ in multiple hands, in different sections from 1966 - 1972. Besides the manuscript writings there are some charts, lists, columns of figures plus a number of ephemeral inserts that appear to be receipts and the like. This manuscript uniquely details for historians, researchers and collectors the requirements, the observances and functions demanded of the village. The book proper is filled with coarse paper sandwiched between two covers, with cord holding all together. Approximately 13cm x 19.5cm, no missing pages.
