Book made in China, 1965, by the Foreign Language Press Peking in the English language. Part I of the Mao Zedong Selected Works in it’s original box.
This book once belonged to the Red Resistance Front’s archive (RVF). The Red Resistance Front existed from 1977 to 1988. Former members of the Red Youth (a communist group) and its affiliated Red Aid were active in the organisation. The RVF was an aid organization for the “armed resistance” in Western Europe, together with a large number of pamphlets mainly protesting against the detention situation of imprisoned members of the German Red Army Faction (RAF)
The RVF also conducted and coordinated actions against the European Parliament elections, which were held for the first time in 1979. The group saw it as part of a political structure that would give Germany and the United States too much power in Europe.
. The Selected Works of Mao Tse-Tung is a five volume collection of the written works of Mao Zedong ranging from the years 1926–1957. The collection was first published by the People’s Publishing House in 1951, and was later translated into English by the state-owned Foreign Languages Press. A fifth volume, which included the works of Chairman Mao from 1949 to 1957, was released during the leadership of Hua Guofeng, but subsequently withdrawn from circulation for its perceived ideological errors.
There has never been an official “Complete Works of Mao Zedong” collecting all his known publications. A number of unauthorized volumes of the Selected Works of Mao Tse-Tung have been released, such as Volumes 6-9 which were published in India by the Communist Party of India (Maoist). During the ten years of the Cultural Revolution (1966-1976), the People’s Publishing House published 870 different editions of Selected Works of Mao Tse-Tung (Volumes 1–4), with a total of 325 million paperbacks and 2.55 million hardcover copies of the Chinese editions created. The Selected Works were also translated into a 14 different foreign languages.
