Abstract:

The report is a study of Mass doctrine of land reform and its relevance to revolutionary warfare. It critically reviews Maos basic hypotheses concerning the role of land reform in the revolutionary war, examines the conditions that provide the opportunity for the constraints to land redistribution, and draws some policy implications. A revolution is considered as a protracted armed struggle, led by the Party and supported by the masses. Each of three elements, The army, The Party, and the masses has a key role to play.
