I was born and raised in a village located in what had once been the heartland of the Central Soviet. Throughoul primary and secondary school, I heard many stories about the history of the revolution in the soviet. Subsequently, I entered Jiangxi Normal University, majoring in the study of history and remained there after graduation to teach in the department of history. In the archives maintained by the department, I found a good deal of material from the 1950s that was related to investigations and visits made on a village-by-village basis with regard to the revolution in the Central Soviet. This is what inspired my interest in the history of the Central Soviet itself. In the 1980s, in my spare time from teaching responsibilities, I was able to read and research archives and other investigations and oral histories on the subject. I also returned many times toRuijin, Xingguo, Ningdu, and other such places to conduct my own on-site investigations. I discovered great discrepancies between the popular descriptions and narratives about the soviet produced by our historians and the actual historical facts. In particular, I came to many new understandings with regard to the "leftist"mistakes within the Chinese Communist Party. Consequently, I wrote and published several articles on the Central Soviet, most of which dealt with the subject of the land revolution. Finally, in 1991, based on these studies and previous research, I published the book, Zhongyang suqu tudi geming yanjiu (Studies of the Land Revolution in the Central Soviet.)
