—150 Million Sets of Selected Works of Mao Tse-tung Published in Less Than Three Years

THE brilliant works of our great leader Chairman Mao have been published and distributed in unprecedented numbers during the great proletarian cultural revolution. This has given a powerful impetus to the extensive dissemination and popularization of the invincible thought of Mao Tse-tung among the 700 million Chinese people.
  From the mighty advent of the great proletarian cultural revolution in 1966 to the end of November 1968, China published and distributed a total of over 150 million sets of the Selected Works of Mao Tse-tung. These include editions in the Hun, Mongolian, Tibetan, Uighur, Kazakh and Korean languages. This number is more than 13 times the total published in the 15 years before the great cultural revolution.
     In the same 1966-68 period, China also published and distributed over 140 million copies of the Selected Headings From the Works of Mao Tse-tung, over 740 million copies of the Quotations From Chairman Mao Tse-tung, close to 2,000 million copies of such illustrious works by Chairman Mao as "the three constantly read articles," "the five constantly read articles" and the "Report to the Second Plenary Session of the Seventh Central Committee of the Communist Party of China," either in single-article pamphlets or in collections, as well as over 96 million copies of Chairman Mao's Poems.
  As soon as Chairman Mao's brilliant works were published in large numbers, personnel in China's distribution departments and revolutionary workers and staff members in the trade, transport and postal delivery departments sent them as fast as possible to the cities, villages, mountain regions, grasslands, islands, and border areas — to every corner of our great motherland. Overjoyed at receiving these treasured revolutionary books, the revolutionary people of all nationalities enthusiastically cheered: "Long live the invincible thought of Mao Tse-tung!" "Long live our great leader Chairman Mao!"
  In the past, because the renegade, traitor and scab Liu Shao-chi and his agents used every means to suppress and sabotage the publication and distribution of Chairman Mao's works, it was very difficult for the broad masses of workers, peasants and soldiers to get them. Now that they are published and distributed in largo numbers, this situation has changed completely. Particularly in the remote border areas and national minority regions such as Yunnan, Chinghai, Sinkiang and Tibet, the number of Chairman Mao's works which have reached the people of various nationalities during the great cultural revolution is several score to several hundred times the total number distributed there in the dozen or more years before the cultural revolution. In the Huchu Autonomous County of the Tu Nationality in Chinghai Province, some poor and lower-middle peasants used to travel several hundred li without being able to buy a copy of Chairman Mao's works. Since the great cultural revolution, dressed in their holiday-best, they have welcomed and received successive deliveries of these treasured revolutionary books. From seven to seventy, everybody in the county today possesses a copy of the Quotations From Chairman Mao Tse-tung, every household has a set of the Selected Works of Mao Tse-tung, and men and women, old and young, have joined in the mass movement for the creative study and application of Chairman Mao's works.
China's revolutionary masses have profoundly realized that Vice-chairman Lin Piao's important inscription "Sailing the seas depends on the helmsman, making revolution depends on Mao Tse-tung's thought" is a great truth. They are aware of the fact that studying and applying Chairman Mao's works creatively and placing Mao Tse-tung's thought in command of everything is the fundamental guarantee for consolidating the dictatorship of the proletariat, preventing capitalist restoration and ensuring that our great socialist motherland will never change its colour. The creative study and application of Chairman Mao's works has now bo-come the primary need in the life of the people of our country. "Study Chairman Mao's writings, follow his teachings, act according to his instructions and be his good fighters" has already become the common resolve of the people of the whole country.

The revolutionary workers and staff members on the publishing, printing and distribution fronts regard the mass publication and distribution of Chairman Mao's works and the dissemination of Mao Tse-tung's thought as the loftiest and most glorious task entrusted to them by the present era. In the past three years, they have penetratingly repudiated the towering crimes of Liu Shao-chi and the rest of the handful of top Party capitalist readers who made a vain attempt to obstruct the dissemination of Mao Tse-tung's thought by suppressing and sabotaging the publication and distribution of Chairman Mao's works. They have devoted all their efforts to the printing and distribution of Chairman Mao's works. The number of printing houses in China now printing the Selected Works of Mao Tse-tung has increased from the 13 before the great cultural revolution to over 300. They are to be found in every part of the country except the Tibet Autonomous Region.
  The revolutionary workers and staff members in the paper-making industry have raised output of paper used in printing Chairman Mao's works by more than a dozen times since the great cultural revolution. They have also successfully trial-produced a variety of thin letterpress paper suitable for printing extra-fine pocket-size copies of the Quotations From Chairman Mao Tse-tung and the Selected Works of Mao Tse-tung. This is an important guarantee for publishing Chairman Mao's works in large numbers. Revolutionary workers and staff members in the plastics, printing ink and machine building industries also have actively participated in and energetically supported the work of publishing and distributing Chairman Mao's works, thereby contributing to the unprecedented popularization of Mao Tse-tung's thought.
