Chapter Summary

After the establishment of the People's Republic in 1949, the whole country experienced drastic economic, political and social change, as the new regime set out to consolidate its power and implement its vision of the New China throughout this vast polity. The Three-Anti campaign in 1951 to combat corruption, waste, and bureaucratism, and the Five-Anti campaign of 1952 against bribery, tax evasion, fraud, theft of government property and leakage of state economic secrets were likewise designed to undermine and eliminate real or potential opposition to the revolutionary regime. China's participation in the Korean War enabled the government to arouse the patriotic fervour of the masses, intensify the search for 'counter- revolutionaries' and expose foreign spies.
