Review of an Argument on a Historical Article of Chinese Trotskyite

Qiang YANG


It is disputed whether or not the Chinese Trotskyists advocated “defeatism” on the Communist Party of China and the Chinese People’s Liberation Army in the Chinese Civil War. The argument was triggered by a historical article entitled Summary of Civil War brought up in The History of Chinese Trotskyists. According to this article, the author of this book believed the Trotskyists supported the concept of defeatism, but the former members of the Chinese Trotskyite denied it because they had never seen the article and believed it was faked. After a series of investigation, this article was proven to have existed, so they acknowledge this article, but still denied the accusation about defeatism because they questioned the representative of this article. So the argument remained.
