This effort at "prosopography," or group biography, traces the history of the generation who came of age at the time of the December 9, 1935 student uprisings in Peking. Middle-of-the-road "utilitarian Marxists," they suffered heavily in the Cultural Revolution. An eminent survivor is Ambassador Huang Hua.
