1936: On the Eve of War and Freedom

  • Pamela Lubell
Part of the St Antony’s Series book series


1936 was indeed a turning point, not just for scholars and revolutionaries but for entire nations and vast continents. For China it was the year that all its disparate forces – Guomindang government and military leaders, the Chinese Communist Party, warlord generals, radical students and National Salvation activists – finally converged on the one path of a united front against Japan.3 For Bo Yibo, An Ziwen, Yang Xianzhen, Liu Lantao and their comrades in Beijing’s Caolanzi prison, 1936 was the year they achieved freedom and took up a new and formative role in the communist revolution.
