Description
This collection contains the records of the Mao Zedong Writing Project, which aimed to comprehensively translate the writings of Chinese leader Mao Zedong (1893-1976) into English. The project operated from the 1970s to 1992, first at Brown University and then at Northern Arizona University. Materials include translations of Mao Zedong's writing and speeches, as well as photocopies of the original Chinese texts, supporting documentation, project records, and bibliographic files.
Background
The Mao Zedong Writing Project was a project that operated from the 1970s to 1992 to comprehensively translate the writings of Chinese leader Mao Zedong (1893-1976) into English. The project began at Brown University (1973/4-1989), with co-editors Professors John K. Leung and Michael Y. M. Kau, before moving to Northern Arizona University under the sole editorship of Leung. The project received National Endowment for the Humanities funding, awarded in 1975 and renewed in 1977-78 and 1980-82. A portion of the project's work was published as The Writings of Mao Zedong, 1949-1976: Volume 1 September 1949-December 1955 and Volume II January 1956-December 1957 (M.E. Sharpe, 1986, 1992).
