Ai Ssu-ch'i: The Apostle of Chinese Communism. Part One: His Life and Works

Studies in Soviet Thought 12 (1):2-36 (1972)


Ai Ssu-ch'i is a little known but very important figure in the introduction of Marxism-Leninism into China. This first article provides a brief biography of Ai Ssu-ch'i as well as a detailed account of his activities as teacher, author and propagandist. Among his other services to the cause of Marxism-Leninism in China, one has to stress Ai Ssu-ch'i's systematic opposition to Yeh Ch'ing and to the non-Communist interpretation of Dr. Sun Yat-sen's 'Three Principles of the People'.
