Chinese Pamphlets

Chinese Pamphlets [1947-1954]
These illustrated pamphlets on
political communication and mass education are from the early period of the People's Republic of China.  There is a selection of English translated pamphlets. Here's a description of the project from the Center For Research Libraries:

"Mass education materials published in Hong Kong and in Mainland China, particularly Shanghai, in the years 1947-1954. These cartoon books, pamphlets, postcards and magazines, on topics such as foreign threats to Chinese security, Chinese relations with the Soviet Union, industrial and agricultural production, and marriage reform, were produced by both Kuomintang (Nationalist) and Gongchantang (Communist) supporters."
