Example text

50 28 Timothy Cheek “represented” the summation of Sinified Marxism-Leninism and thus should reflect the consensus of the party leadership. That this editing relied most heavily on Mao’s voluntary acquiescence and that the process was highly distorted as early as 1960 did not weaken, in the minds of the party editors, the attempt to make official Mao works a “collective” enterprise. Indeed, both Mao himself and advisors from the Soviet Union were active in this process during the early 1950s when the authoritative Selected Works was compiled.

Indeed, Mao and the CCP stressed “democratic centralism” (minzhu jizhong) and were ruthless in suppressing dissidents, such as the left-wing intellectuals associated with the writer Ding Ling and theorist Wang Shiwei who dared to question Mao and CCP practice from an independent Marxist (and feminist) stand in 1942. ” The lessons of this coordinated but flexible organizing have been applied to social movements elsewhere, from the Vietcong in Vietnam, to Che Guevara in Latin America, to Naxalite activists in Nepal (see Chapter 12).

As Charles Hayford shows in Chapter 13, popular Western images derive from themes in films such as The Good Earth (based on Pearl S. Buck’s novel) but have been driven by journalists – professionals who answer to media masters chasing the ever-elusive “top story” of the day. Edgar Snow was one such journalist, and his successors on the “China beat” have brought vivid images of Mao and China to newspapers and magazines in Western countries. Understandably, those stories have been driven by the concerns of the reading publics of The New York Times, The Guardian, or Le Monde more than by concerns of historical balance or complex contexts.
