Today’s episode concludes our four-part series on China under the rule of Chinese Communist Party Chairman Mao Zedong. It moves from where we left off last time (with most of Mao’s enemies, real and suspected, purged from the government) until his death and the Revolution’s aftermath. We also deal with some Western misconceptions of how the Revolution played out and how the CCP responded.

Here’s a link to our notes and research.

My plan when starting our miniseries on China under Chinese Communist Party Chairman Mao Zedong was a three-parter: the Great Leap Forward, the Great Famine and the Cultural Revolution. Between announcing the miniseries and recording that third installment, though, the Cultural Revolution grew into a two-parter.

Today we’re talking about the Cultural Revolution’s first couple of years. This covers the heyday of the Red Guard, which was essentially an unsupervised army of teenagers empowered by Mao to seek out, expose, harass and imprison “rightists,” “bad elements” and others. It also covers a massive purge of Mao’s enemies (real and perceived) within the Chinese government.
