The Cultural Revolution in Inner Mongolia : Extracts from an Unpublished History

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This volume contains extracts from The Cultural Revolution in Inner Mongolia, an unpublished 600-page account by a Chinese historian "W. Woody" based exclusively on original archive material and interviews with survivors. The focus of the extracts is on the ethnicidal political movement to “uproot” the so-called “New Inner Mongolian People’s Party.” This movement, which took place in 1968-69, led to the death of more than 16,000 persons, most of them ethnic Mongols killed by the People’s Liberation Army.
Since so little of the Cultural Revolution in Inner Mongolia is known in the West, the translator decided to preface the material with a brief chronological sketch, outlining the sequence of significant events from 1966 to 1971.
