New Resource: “China’s Fallen Mighty

An interactive timeline of toppled Chinese Communist Party leaders, 1976-2013, available via ChinaFile, and created by Ouyang Bin, Zhang Mengqi, David M. Barreda, and Youyou Zhou. 

The timeline covers ousted members of the Politburo, sorted into three levels, namely the very highest leaders (Hua Guofeng, Hu Yaobang, and Zhao Ziyang); members of the Politburo Standing Committee; then members of the broader Politburo. Helpful biographies are also provided at the original post page.

For full details and the timeline itself, which is available also for download, see the link above.
