The Guomindang in Europe: A Sourcebook of Documents
China Research Monograph 52
2000. 320 pp.
This sourcebook is a series of documents on the Guomindang in Europe — its formation, activities, and ideology. The largest portion is translated from the Chinese; the rest of the documents are in the original French and English. The documents came from collected materials in Chinese and French archival sources.
The sourcebook provides a fresh foundation for exploring the political activities and ideas of Chinese leaders in the twentieth century. The inclusion of primary materials allows one to see, unfettered by biased retrospect, the original words used by these political actors, their interactions with one another, and their hopes of changing the world.
