Hovedinnhold

Velkommen til en ny forelesning i serien Centenary of the Chinese Communist Party denne høsten: Floating Authority and Virtual Allies: Prefectural Factionalism in the Cultural Revolution ved Cui Jinke, University of Vienna and University of Cologne. 

Studies have shown that the fierce factional conflicts and related casualties in the Cultural Revolution were caused by local Revolutionary Committees lacking formal recognition by Mao Zedong. This lecture challenges the assumption of a centralized command chain between Mao Zedong and local revolutionary committees. Using a case study of Shandong and Shanxi, it explains the complex dynamics between multi-level government entities, the army, and local Revolutionary Committees.
