With a population of nearly 1.4 billion, China is bound to have many stories to tell, so is the Communist Party of China with more than 90 million members. It is a mission impossible to present a panoramic view about the past and present of the Party in a single book. It is more feasible to trace the Party history in the chronological order and highlight some historic events in the course, an approach the author follows in this book. Consisting of nine chapters, the book tells vivid stories of historic significance about the Party for readers to better understand its past and present.
