Abstract:

By purging Lo Jui-ching, Chief of Staff of the Chinese Peoples Liberation Army PLA, in December 1965, the Maoists were able to eliminate a politician whose opposition to Mao was suggested by his persistent, public dissent on basic strategic and domestic politics. The report presents an explanation of Los purge by linking the documents of the Vietnam debate and the revelations of internal politics during the Cultural Revolution. Implications for present and future Chinese policymaking are discussed. Author
