Encyclopedia of CPC History 党史百科

Encyclopedia of CPC History 党史百科.

Developed by the affiliated website of People’s Daily, the official organ of the Communist Party of China (CPC), this resource currently provides over 2000 entries on individuals, events, documents, places, and terms relevant to the history of the CPC. Understandably the entries usually follow the official CPC line on controversial issues. It also provides links to full-text documents, including selected works of Mao Zedong and other major CPC leaders.
