226 Mao's position in history is treated by two short selections from Schram and one each from Meisner and Ch'en. This would be entirely unsatisfactory were it not for an excellent introduction by Ch'en. The introduction is not only brilliantly replete with interpretation but absorbing in the depth and range of its information. It makes this slim volume a "must" for specialists, as well as a useful anthology for students and the lay reader. There are at least five major areas or themes in which Ch'en's introduction deserves the careful attention of scholars. Perhaps the most interesting to the historian is the author's analysis of Mao's Huannese background, the way it helped shape his whole revolutionary career and more particularly its influence on Mao's voluntarism. Ch'en is equally as convincing in pursuing a second major theme, the devel- opment of the mass line. He traces this back to the 1928-31 period, when as secretary of the Front committee, Mao's survival and that of the revolution de- pended upon mass support. The idea of the mass line and its substitution for the Leninist concept of an elitist party not only marks the most characteristic feature of the Chinese revolution
