The Chinese Communist Party, as the political leader of the world's largest country and second largest economy, plays an undeniably important role in global politics. Founded in a boarding school in Shanghai in 1921, the Chinese Communist Party is one ofthe oldest ruling parties in the world since its takeover of mainland China in 1949 under the leadership of Chairman Mao Zedong. Since its inception, the party has survived a civil war with the Kuomintang (1946-1949); the political, cultural, and humanitarian catastrophe of the Great Leap Forward (1958-1960), where upwards of 30 million Chinese civilians died; and the death of the Chinese Communist Party's dominant leader, Mao Zedong, in 1976. In recent years, intellectuals and party members have been given increasing leeway to express their opinions, and Lawrence R. Sullivan takes advantage of this new research to provide a comprehensive history of one of the world's most fascinating political movements. The Historical Dictionary of the Chinese Communist Party contains a chronology, an introductory essay, an appendix, an extensive bibliography, and more than 400 cross-reference dictionary entries on key people, places, and institutions. This book is an excellent access point for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about the Chinese Communist Party.

"The period from the beginning of World War I to the end of World War II was one of the most significant in the history of the United States. Twice the nation was drawn into "foreign entanglements" - wars it initially thought were of no concern and therefore tried to steer clear of - only to realize it could not stand aside. With each war, the United States geared up in record time, entered the fray, and was crucial to the outcome. Each tested the American people and their leaders, and in each case the country came out of the conflagration stronger than before and emerged as a world leader." "Historical Dictionary of U.S. Diplomacy from World War I through World War II relates the events of this crucial period in U.S. history through a chronology. an introductory essay, and more than 600 cross-referenced dictionary entries on key people, places, events, institutions. and organizations." --Book Jacket.
