The Columbia Guide to Modern Chinese History

PART II
Compendium of Key Events, Terms,
Institutions, and Figures

The Compendium is a dictionary of historical events, figures, and terms. It is divided into eleven sections containing some 250 separate entries. The Compendium is user-friendly: entries within each section are alphabetical and each entry is found in the index. The reader can use the Compendium for rapid identification of names and terms, a special help for those unfamiliar with Chinese names. Biographical entries also include the birth and death dates (when known) of the figures. These entries supplement the narrative; in many cases, they contain even more information than that in part 1.

In some instances, there is a possibility of overlap between categories, for example, among party leaders, military figures, and leaders of dissent, rebellion, and revolution. In such cases, I suggest the reader turn first to the index. Entries in the section on writers include the titles of major publications available in English translation.


MAJOR EVENTS AND MOVEMENTS

Anti-Lin (Biao), anti-Confucius campaign (1973–74)—This mass movement rather cryptically linked and criticized the ultraleftist Lin and the ultrarightist Confucius as embodiments of feudal Chinese society. It was the last major campaign phase of the Cultural Revolution.

Anti-Rightist Campaign (1957)—This party-initiated movement came against alleged rightists in the Chinese Communist Party, many of whom had been emboldened to offer criticism of the party and government by the party's own call for the Hundred Flowers Movement. More than thirty thousand intellectuals lost their positions, were imprisoned, or were sent to do forced labor. Many were not rehabilitated until 1979.
