The comprehension of the causes, conditions and results of socio-political transformations in China in the period from 1949 to 1982 remains an urgent research topic. Discussions and disputes on these issues continue today. Since 1968, Fyodor Burlatsky (1927-2014) published his assessments and characteristics regarding the socio-political transformations in China. Burlatsky was not a professional sinologist, but despite this, his works give the opportunity to get immersed in the problems of the period under consideration.

Key words: Ф.М. Бурлацкий, Мао Цзэдун, Дэн Сяопин, политическая история Китая, Burlatsky, Mao Zedong, Deng Xiaoping, political history of China
