《陈独秀全传》读后感

这是一本繁体中文版的 Kindle 电子书,很神奇吧?我第一次听说 Kindle 上有一小部分繁体中文书的时候也觉得神奇,所以就按图索骥买了这么一本来读。

Complete Biography of Chen Duxiu
唐宝林著作《陈独秀全传》

当时没有什么特别的理由,只是觉得对这位陈先生的历史知之甚少。他是中国共产党的主要创始人,又连任了五届总书记的职务。按道理来说,这么一位革命家应该给我留下很深的印象才对。但很不幸,他在我的脑海里仅仅留存着《新青年》杂志主编这么一个事件。因此我一直觉得有些不对劲,但又说不上什么原因,直到我读完这本书。

作者叫做唐宝林,是中国社会科学院近代史研究所的一位研究员。从一些公开资料来看,他是大陆研究陈独秀的人里掌握史料最多的人。如果你恰好读过高华先生的著作《红太阳是怎样升起的》,那么应该可以理解这本书的重要性。

因为种种原因(读完全书就会知道具体原因),陈独秀是一个不受欢迎的人。为这个人著书立传会遇到立场问题,究竟是独立思考实事求是地去写,还是附和党的要求在一个被预先设定的框框里有限地发挥呢?这是一个问题。

答案是显而易见的,因为这本书未能在中国大陆出版,最后是由香港大学出版社于2011年在香港出版发行。

我要特别指出,这本书是我迄今为止在 Kindle 上购买的最贵的一本书。不知道出于什么目的,这本书被分为三卷出售,每卷售价 5.99 元。单本不贵,但合起来就是 17.97 元。而且拆散之后售卖会造成一系列的问题。比如在 Kindle Profile 上就显示我读完了三本书,而不是一本。

此外,我还需要说明一下,Kindle 上有繁体中文书这个消息是 @xiasinet 告诉我的。他当时去香港参观了香港书展,在展会上得知此消息并告诉了我。

你可以在 Amazon Kindle Store 购买这本书:

以下是我发表在 Amazon 上的英文书评,基本上是本文的翻译,没有绝对必要可以忽视。

To English speaker: This book is written in CHINESE. If you can’t read it, don’t buy it.

My friend Xiasi (@xiasinet) told me there were some Chinese books available in Kindle Store. It is something I never expected. To verify his story, I bought this book.

I don’t have particular reason to choose this book. Maybe it’s because I have very limited knowledge about this person. Chen is major creator of China Communist Party. He was the party chef for consecutive eight years. In common sense, I should have more details about him. Unfortunately, the only thing left in my brain was his days at Le Jeunesse magazine. I don’t feel good but I have no clue until finished reading this book.

The author is Tang Baolin, a researcher from Institute of Modern History in Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. I did some research online. Tang is the most famous scholar in the field of Chen Duxiu history. If you happen to read How Did The Red Sun Rise by Gao Hua, you could probably guess the importance of Tang’s book.

For some reason(you have to read the book), Chen Duxiu is almost a taboo in mainland China. It’s hard to write his biography. Since the Party had set a frame work for this person, it will challenge the author. To be honest or not, this is a question.

The answer is obvious. This book was never published in mainland China. In 2011, CUHK press published it in Hong Kong.

One more thing. This book has been cut into three pieces. Each piece asks for USD 5.99, which make this book the most expensive one(USD 17.97) in my Kindle book collection. Please don’t do that again. It’s annoying.
