On offer is an original, significant 1966 manuscript diary and journal handwritten by a student of Nan Kai University in Tian Jin City. Over 200 pages in the 13cm x 18cm book the author, who we believe is recorded within the pages, details his part in the Communist movement and life at the University as the process of Mao Zedong's Cultural Revolution began. As one online source succinctly sums up the times: "People's Republic of China from 1966 through 1976. Set into motion by Mao Zedong, then Chairman of the Communist Party of China, its stated goal was to enforce socialism in the country by removing capitalist, traditional and cultural elements from Chinese society, and impose Maoist orthodoxy within the Party. The most important, yet naturally unstated, reason for the revolution was the return of Mao Zedong to a position of political power, after he lost most of his political influence after his failed Great leap forward." There are a small number of handmade craft items glued to some pages, the odd loss of characters from glued spots but overall G.
