Summary note
"In 1936 the Chinese Communist party secretly ordered a group of its cadres, imprisoned by the Nationalists, to renounce publicly all ties with the communist movement, thereby effecting their release from jail. These cadres were urgently needed to galvanize support for the party in northern China and to promote a united front against Japan. During the Cultural Revolution, some thirty years later, despite its role in their release and despite their high-ranking status, the Party condemned the members of this group as renegades. Once again they were imprisoned. Twelve years elapsed before they were rehabilitated in 1978. Pamela Lubell has written a history of the Sixty-One Renegades and has produced a revealing account of tensions within the founder generation of the Chinese Communist Party."--Jacket.
