Mao Zedong Thought. By Fabian Van Onzen (Marx & Philosophy Review of Books, 13 September 2021). Review of Wang Fanxi’s book (Brill/Haymarket Books, 2020/2021, 326 p.). “The book – first published in Chinese in 1973 – offers some brilliant critical insights into the cult of personality, the influence of Confucianism on Chinese Marxism and Mao’s role in the Chinese Revolution, and is likely to become a classic in the near future.” See also review by Sean Ledwith (Counterfire, What was Chinese Trotskyism?: Reflections on Wang Fanxi’s Mao Zedong Thought. By Promise Lee (Spectre, October 28, 2021) + To make sense of modern China, look to Mao Zedong’s long march to power. By Kap Seol (Jacobin, November 12, 2022)
Obituary: Wang Fanxi (1907-2002). By Gregor Benton and Pierre Rousset (International Viewpoint, 7 March 2003). “On December 30, 2002, the Chinese Trotskyist leader Wang Fanxi died of heart failure in Leeds, Britain, aged 95. Born in Xiashi near Hangzhou in 1907, he joined the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in 1925, abandoning his literature studies at Beijing University for the revolution. In 1931, he was expelled from the CCP and helped set up the Left Opposition …”
Wang Fanxi. By Gregor Benton (The Guardian, 21 April 2003). “In Britain, Wang influenced generations of Chinese students and he was revered by radical Chinese community leaders, who sought his advice on social equity and white racism.”

Wang Fanxi – Chinese Trotskyist, 1907-2003. By Rob Sewell (In Defence of Marxism, 13 June 2005). “In January Wang Fanxi died in Leeds, England. He was one of the few remaining links to the early Chinese Trotskyist movement. It was after the defeat of the 1926 Chinese revolution that, together with hundreds of other members of the Chinese Communist Party, he began to question the policies of the leadership and joined Trotsky’s Left Opposition.”
Wang Fan-hsi. By Din Wong (Workers’ Liberty, 9 January, 2003). “For Wang, the collapse of Stalinism was a vindication of his opposition to both the theory and practice of Stalinism, first in the Soviet Union and then in China. It was Trotskyists like Wang who consistently came out against the degeneration of the Soviet state, against its bureaucratic dictatorship and who exposed as an illusion the Stalinist idea of ‘building socialism in one country’.”
A Chinese Marxist in the ’20s (pdf). By Wang Fan-hsi (Workers’ Liberty, No.12-13, August 1989, p.57). “I joined the Chinese Communist Party in 1925, at Hangchow in Chekiang province. Then I went to Peking and worked in that district. In 1926 I become a political commissar in the army.”

Foreword to Chen Duxiu’s Last Articles and Letters 1937-1942 . By Wang Fanxi (Marxists Internet Archive). “When Gregor Benton asked me to write a foreword to this collection of Chen Duxiu’s last articles and letters to introduce their author to Western readers, I felt duty-bound to accept, as Chen’s disciple, correspondent, and occasional critic.”
An interview: Wang Fan-hsi, his life, the Chinese Trotskyist movement and the Chinese revolution  (Europe Solidaire Sans Frontiers, April 28, 2021). “The interview with the late Chinese Trotskyist Wang Fan-hsi was produced when Wataru Yakushiji, a member of the Japan Revolutionary Communist League (JRCL: Fourth-International group), visited Hong Kong and Macao in the summer of 1972.”
Mao’s China was no workers’ state . By Wang Fanxi (Solidarity & Workers Liberty, Issue 656, 7 December 2022). “In this article the Chinese Trotskyist Wang Fanxi gave his assessment of the new Maoist state soon after the victory of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in 1949.” See also the original article: The Stalinist State in China (New International, Issue 146, March-April 1951).
Problems of Chinese Trotskyism . By Wang Fanxi (Revolutionary History, Vol.2 No.4, Spring 1990; online at Marxists Internet Archive). “The inception of the Chinese Trotskyist movement dates back to 1928.
