Paul C:
Do you mean that they published a Chinese edition of the Collected Works?
They certainly never published foreign language editions. The Greek CP
published english editions of the Stalin Collected Works during the 1970s,
and was as far as I know the only publisher of them in english other than
the original Moscow edition. The Moscow edition had only got to volume 13
when Kruschev stopped publication. Volumes 14 and 15 were published by
an american university publisher - I think it was Harvard.

What evidence do you have that they were written by somebody else, and
if so who was it?
