Mao-era revolution

Order Description

analyze and comment on the following statement regarding the social consequences of the Mao-era revolution. “One of the great ironies of China’s post-1949 history is that despite Mao and the CCP’s hopes that the revolution would eliminate status and class differences in China, the revolution wound up creating a society during the Mao era in which class and status differences were at the heart of the process of political change which ultimately had the effect of reshaping society along class lines.” Do you agree with this statement? Disagree? Why? Defend your view. Part II, evaluate the extent to which the market-friendly policies of the post-Mao era have redefined the nature of class and class divisions in China. To what extent is the historic alliance between the CCP and the workers and peasants now a thing of the past?
