Velkommen til en ny forelesning i serien Centenary of the Chinese Communist Party denne høsten: State Formation in China and Taiwan in the post-1949 Era ved Julia Strauss, Soas University of London.

In the years following the communist victory against the nationalists on the Chinese mainland in 1949, both the “revolutionary” People’s Republic of China and the “conservative” Republic of China (Taiwan) thrived on consolidating power in their respective territories. However, by the mid-1950s, they were clearly on different trajectories of state-building and development. This lecture explains how the Chinese Communist Party tried to accomplish regime consolidation between 1949 and 1954 compared to its rival Kuomintang in Taiwan.
