Beijing Review 1979 – 1991

More on China …..

Comrade Mao Tse-tung was barely installed in his mausoleum before the renegades, traitors and ‘capitalist roaders’ in the Communist Party of China went on the attack. This was evident in the articles that appeared in China and which were reproduced in the various magazines produced for a foreign audience. It wasn’t just in Peking/Beijing Review that this became evident as the stance taken in China Reconstructs, China Pictorial and Chinese Literature all very soon followed suit. This was an all-round attack on the very principals and foundation of Socialism and so was carried out in all areas of society.

From the first issue of 1979 the magazine changed its name from Peking Review to Beijing Review – probably the only positive move made by the magazine since late 1976 to date.

The magazine continues to be published to this day but its aim bears no resemblance to when it was first established in the 1950s – originally under the name of People’s China. At that time its goal was to promote the construction of Socialism and to publicise these efforts to the rest of the world. From 1977 onwards its aim was to justify the re-establishment of capitalism.

However, the ‘capitalist roaders’ were never honest in their endeavours and always sought to cloak their activities in the red flag and paid mock homage to the revolutionary period of Chinese history from the Declaration of the People’s Republic of China in 1949 until just after the death of Chairman Mao in 1976.

The reason for making these magazines freely available is so that those who have an interest in the construction of Socialism can see, through a sometimes gradual process, how the Revolution can be so easily stolen from the people if they are not constantly vigilant.

We have had no access to substantial issues of the magazine after the second part of 1991 – but that’s no real loss as subsequent editions teach no one anything about Socialism.
