Sun Yat-Sen and the Three Principles of the Revolution [electronic resource]

Pathé cinéma (France)
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
This program shows the stark life of China's peasants as they lived in 1949, which is how they had lived for centuries, perhaps for millennia; the Boxer Rebellion; the revolts of 1911 and 1919, and the appearance of Sun Yat-sen on the scene; the founding of the Kuomintang, the role of the warlords, and the events following the death of Sun, up to the Long March. The program thus sets against the backdrop which explains their goals, the three principles of the Chinese revolution: improve the life of the people; drive out the foreigners; modernize China.
