What's Left? What's Right?

A Political Journey via North Korea and the Chinese Cultural Revolution

by

What’s Left? What’s Right? is Muriel Seltman’s political autobiography. Muriel and her husband were two idealists who joined the Communist Party of Great Britain in 1952 hoping to change the world. They went to work abroad, initially in North Korea and then in China, where they unexpectedly experienced the early part of the Cultural Revolution.

Muriel describes the motivations, experiences and struggles she and her husband faced, explaining the ideas vs. reality of Communism as she saw them acted out, offering a unique and detailed first-hand account of life in North Korea and China during this tumultuous time. Readers interested in history, Marxism, Communism or the Chinese Cultural Revolution will find this memoir to be of interest.

Weaving together their time as British Communists as well as their experiences in China and North Korea, this book gives an overview of Communism in action.

This is a revised edition of What’s Left? What’s Right?, which was originally publushed in 2010.
