The second book of a series on the history of the Communist Party of China (CPC), focusing on the 1949-1978 period, came off the presses Tuesday, according to a CPC statement.

The book documents CPC history from the founding of the People's Republic of China (PRC) in 1949 to the holding of the Third Plenary Session of the 11th CPC Central Committee in 1978, which is regarded as a watershed of China's reform and opening up drive.

The book was compiled by the Party History Research Center of the CPC Central Committee.

The center and the organizational and publicity departments of the CPC Central Committee said in a joint statement Tuesday that the book is "an authoritative work on CPC history that correctly sums up the party's historical experience."

The book offers an overall and accurate description of the extraordinary process in which the CPC had led the Chinese people to carry out the socialist revolution and construction, the statement said.

The first Party history book, which documents from the birth of the CPC in 1921 up to the founding of the PRC in 1949, has also been reprinted, the statement said.
