Il est sans doute peu de périodes de l'histoire moderne chinoise plus mouvementées et plus fertiles en développements soudains que les huit années qui forment l'objet de ces recherches sur le mouvement ouvrier chinois de 1919 à 1927. En 1919, quand éclatent les grandes grèves du "Mouvement du 4 mai", en écho à l'agitation patriotique des étudiants de Pékin et des marchands de Shangai, le mouvement ouvrier est pratiquement dénué d'organisation véritable. En 1920, les débuts des syndicats sont lents et difficiles. Et pourtant, très vite, vont se succéder des vagues de luttes ouvrières qui mettent en mouvement des dizaines et des centaines de milliers d'hommes ; ces luttes culmineront avec la grève insurrectionnelle de mars 1927 à laquelle participeront 800 000 ouvriers changaiens, soulevés contre les chefs militaires nordistes et qui libéreront cette grande métropole avant l'arrivée des armées nationales de Canton. Ces recherches, qui s'appuient sur un dépouillement méthodique de sources chinoises et occidentales, dont l'appareil de références atteste l'importance, sont organisées en trois grandes sections : l'analyse de la structure sociale du prolétariat et de ses structures d'existence, l'étude des débuts du mouvement ouvrier chinois entre 1919 et 1924, l'évaluation de son rôle dans la révolution de 1924-1927

Brave modern world : the prospects for survival by Jean Chesneaux( Book )

16 editions published between 1989 and 1995 in 4 languages and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Chesneaux seeks both to organize in a concise way many ideas that have been floating about for a number of years and to explain his own views on the ominous direction in which our globe is traveling. While the general argument of his analysis seems to lead to apocalyptic conclusions, he is also at great pains to pinpoint flickering and sometimes glowing signs of hope, such as grassroots protest, the green movement and joint community efforts to save some kind of cultural identity. Altogether, this is a book of great importance for the future of our world
