Mao and Stalin

There were not any major differences between Stalin and Trotsky either

is this pamphlet online in English?

I don't seem to find this pamphlet online in English.

As regards mcolome's comment, there are major differences between Stalin and Trotsky, for instance precisely about the above-mentoned Chinese question.

Also, I would say there are even not so "smal" differences between the consolidated state power of Stalin and Mao. To my knowledge there was no comparabe massacre in Mao's China like on the scale of the 1937-38 Stalinist terror against the own revolutionary party.

I don't think the scale of a

I don't think the scale of a massacre is any kind of meaningful difference. It's more important that in the Cultural Revolution the main massacre wasn't executed in a planned way and carried out by trained and well organized repressive organs, it was more a pogromist chaos which Map was able to more or less control to his own means. I don't have any important insight in the meaning of this, but it's possible that it sheds some light in the difference between a State emerged from the defeat of a proletarian revolution and a stalinist State emerged from a bourgeois conflict. But a discussion about numbers doesn't seem very productive.
