Volumes Attempting to Publish Mao’s Complete Works for Various Periods:

Mao’s Road to Power: Revolutionary Writings, 1912-1949, projected 10 volumes, 8 of which have now been published. Edited by Stuart Schram, Timothy Cheek, et al. These volumes are as complete, well translated into English, and accurate as the editors can make them. However, the editors are themselves bourgeois academics, something which has to be kept in mind. These volumes are not being produced for the benefit of the masses, but rather for academics and university libraries, and are outrageously high priced (often hundreds of dollars per volume!). It is almost as if the editors and publishers are determined to keep these writings away from the people! However, the first 8 volumes have nevertheless been scanned by individuals and made available at a number of places on the Internet. One such safe and reliable place is the “Left Side of the Road Blog”, at https://michaelharrison.org.uk/2017/01/writings-chairman-mao-tse-tung/.

Book: 《机密档案中新发现的毛泽东讲话》   [Newly Discovered Talks of Mao Zedong from a Confidential Archive], edited, with an introduction, by Song Yongyi, published by the National History Publishing House, June 2018, 344 pages, in Chinese. Although the editor is an anti-communist scholar who is opposed to the Cultural Revolution, the information in this book is nevertheless quite valuable. It is a collection of about 85 items by Mao, many of which are talks with foreign visitors, from 1955 to 1976, including Khrushchev, Nehru, Le Duan, and Kim Il Sung. Many important topics are discussed. For example, on p. 168, Mao and Yao Wenyuan discuss the Japanese revolutionary road with the visiting Japanese revolutionaries and Mao agrees with the strategy the Japanese comrades present. Mao says: “I think the opinion of Comrade Anshin is correct. My statement on the tasks of the proletarian party in capitalist countries in 1938 is still valid.” Here Mao is reaffirming his 1938 opinion that while protracted people's war was the correct strategy in countries like China, it was not the appropriate revolutionary strategy in advanced bourgeois democratic countries.   Chinese: Searchable PDF format   [1,486 KB]
