PREFACE TO „THE VICTORY OF NEW DEMOCRACY IN CHINA“

The book „The Victory of New Democracy in China“ was compiled by the Editorial Board of the Czechoslovakian monthly International Politics and published in the Prague on October 25th, 1949. The book was edited and published under the directorship of the Central Secretariat of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia.

The comrades of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia have published in the Czech language the documents of the Chinese People‘s Political Consultative Conference and my own essay concerning the people‘s democratic dictatorship of China. That is a great honor for the Communist Party of China. The struggles of the people of China and the peoples of Europe are two inseparable and mutually reinforcing parts of a common cause, despite the fact that owing to the differences in the levels of social development the stages of the development of their revolutions are different. All the readers of Europe who are concerned about the destiny of Asia will gain a basic knowledge of New China from reading these short documents and particularly from reading the 60-article Common Programme passed by the Chinese People‘s Political Consultative Conference. I believe that the effort which our comrades in Czechoslovakia have exerted in helping European readers to understand New China is a contribution to the international revolutionary movement for which we must be grateful.
