    PUBLISHER'S NOTE

    The four articles contained in this booklet may help to acquaint our readers with the major struggles on New China's philosophical front since its founding in 1949. Written by the Revolutionary Mass Criticism Writing Group of the Party School under the Chinese Communist Party Central Committee, they first appeared separately in Renmin Ribao (People's Daily), Hongqi (Red Flag) and Guangming Ribao (Kwangming Daily). The present translation is made from an abridged version of the Chinese text.
