Third issue in Uighur language of the classic Chinese juvenile periodical of the Maoist regime propaganda among the minorities living in China, in Uighur language with Latin letters, printed in Xinjiang (Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region after the Maoist regime).

After an anonymous preface in Uighur Turkish titled "Mao Zhuxining neziriye mesilisi hekkidiki mohim yolyouym" [i.e. important commentaries about the Maoist theory], this issue has four poems, several short stories, and essays by Uighur Maoist authors. These fragments are illustrated richly in black, white, and red colors. The red color is highlighted due to the conjuncture. The poems including Maoist propaganda such as "men bir Hongxiaobing" [i.e. I am a red guard], as well as historical and political stories.

Red Guards was a mass student-led paramilitary social movement mobilized and guided by Chairman Mao Zedong from 1966 through 1967, during the first phase of the Chinese Cultural Revolution, which he had instituted. Red Guards' goal was "to make the world and then the whole universe red".

Alphabet in Turkestan geography in the 20th century is a notion which was directed by political authority, presented and transformed with modernization and improvement ideals, yet utilized as a significant means of cultural assimilation system. The alphabet used by Uyghur Turks in East Turkestan depended on the political and social conditions of China, the country to which they are bound. Uyghur Turks sometimes used the Latin alphabet and sometimes the Arabic alphabet in China.

This copy is from the library of Swedish diplomat and Turkologist Gunnar Jarring, (1907-2002).

Any Uighur edition of this periodical is extremely rare extant propaganda material of the Maoist regime at the moment. Not located in OCLC.
