Wang Shiwei (1907-47) was a writer and translator. He is best known in China
today as the author (in 1942) of "Wild Lily", an essay supportive but
critical of China's wartime Communist Party, for which he worked as a writer
in Yan'an, the Chinese Communists' capital in the Anti-Japanese War. Wang
Shiwei, though not himself an out-and-out Trotskyist, had strong personal
ties to Wang Fanxi and other Chinese Trotskyists, and translated Lenin's
Testament for them. Writing "Wild Lily", which criticised inequality,
authoritarianism, and lack of "love and humanity" in the wartime Communist
movement, led to his arrest and imprisonment. He was sent to work in a
matchbox factory in Yan'an. He refused to recant, and continued to insist
that Wang Fanxi was a "Communist of humanity." During the evacuation of
Yan'an in 1947, in the civil war between the Communists and the Nationalists
under Chiang Kai-shek, Wang Shiwei was hacked to death with a sword on a
river bank near Yan'an, an execution of which Mao Zedong is said to have
disapproved. Since the start of People's China in 1949, "Wild Lily" has
featured in every movement of dissent, in part because the Maoists liked to
brandish it at critics as "negative study material" with which to frighten
them, so it was nearly always available. This film about Wang Shiwei was made
for Hong Kong TV by the radical filmmaker and academic Louisa Wei, an admirer
of the Chinese Trotskyists. Her next film is about Wang Fanxi.

This Virtual Special Issue brings together a selection of articles
from /*Revolutionary Russia*/ to commemorate the centenary of the momentous
events in Russia over the course of 1917. It was a year that witnessed
the demise of autocracy, popular revolution, the spread of democracy, and
the rise of revolutionary socialism that would shape Russia, Europe and the
international system for the rest of the twentieth century and beyond. The
range of articles carefully curated by the editors of the */Revolutionary
Russia/* go as far back as 1988 and the start of the Journal.
