Chongqing’s Red Culture Campaign : Simulation and its social implications (Hardcover) (Xiao Mei)
About this item
Chongqing’s Red Culture Campaign drew an incredible amount of interest when it took place, but speculation and prejudice has since blurred the public understanding of the sensational story that ties the campaign with the rise and fall of a political star, namely Bo Xilai.
Based on fieldwork conducted in Chongqing, during which interviews, observation, and document analysis were carried out, this book examines the nature of Chongqing’s Red culture campaign, and the interaction between the political programme and the practices of its participants. It seeks to question whether the Red culture campagin was a return to Maoist revolutionary mass campaigning and what kind of relationship between tthe CCP's political power and the lives of the ordinary people was reflected in the case of Chongqing’s Red culture campaign?
