In this assignment, you are to write a short response paper of at least two (max 3) full paragraphs (with topic sentences, evidence, and analysis) analyzing one or more of Joseph Esherick’s ten theses in light of the first-hand account of the CCP leadership that you read in Edgar Snow’s Red Star Over China. Does the account in Red Star help prove any of Esherick’s theses? Does Esherick offer any analysis that delegitimates the account offered by Snow? You are free to take this in any direction you choose, but your argument must be based on evidence from the sources. 

In 1995, Joseph Esherick wrote his article “Ten Theses on the Chinese Revolution” in response to what he saw as an oversimplified debate about why the Chinese Communist Party ended up winning their civil war against the Guomindang. The old debate, boiled down, was between people who argued that the CCP won because their policies actually helped solve problems for China’s rural population, and people who argued that the reason the CCP gained support among China’s rural population was “peasant nationalism,” i.e. the CCP stood up to Japan, and the GMD failed to. Esherick found both of these explanations unsatisfying, and in this article he sets out ten overlapping explanations that stress multicausality.
