When the popular discontent in the satellite countries of Eastern Europe came to head in October 1957 in the uprising in Hungary and Gomulka's coup d'etat in Poland, the whole Communist world was involved. It was not a matter which would be of concern only to the Soviet Union and the European Communist countries, leaving unaffected the great Asian adherent to the Marxist-Leninist faith, the Chinese People's Republic. This article discusses the Communist China's position in relation to the Soviet Union and the Communist countries of Eastern Europe. It seeks to report that despite their geographical remoteness from the scenes of conflict, the Chinese Communists were greatly alarmed at the course of events and their concern showed in two ways: in a diplomatic policy of intervention and mediation between the Soviet Union and the European satellites; and in domestic policies designed to apply what were considered to the lessons of the outbreak in Europe. The author relates Mao Tse-tung government's dealing with Moscow and Joseph Stalin's treatment to Chinese Communists.
