Abstract:

The American student of Chinese Communist affairs must rely heavily on the recorded public utterances of representatives of the regime. The interpretation of such data is of course subject to a number of uncertainties. The ways in which public political statements can be used to deceive, to mislead, or to bargain are not always obvious. Even when a statement embodies a real calculation or the speakers genuine perception of the world, the motive for making it may lie in the passing demands of small scale tactics, or it may be of extreme subjective import to the speaker. The major purpose of this paper has been to explore the contribution of the analysis of overt communication to the understanding of the political processes of a closed society. Author
