Chapter Summary

This chapter asks how the CCP could survive under circumstances of apparent ideological bankruptcy during the reform period. In other words, how has the Party been able to retain its influence in academic life, and why has the state hung on to its socialist ideology. The answer to these questions lies in the reform of both Party ideology and Party organization. In this chapter, the author shows how official formulations and delineations of correct and incorrect categories narrow the range within which one could successfully conduct research or apply for funding. He substantiates this argument with examples from self-introductions of CASS institutes in the Yearbooks of CASS and with descriptions of research in the Compass for the State Key Item Programme of 1997, inviting CASS scholars to submit an application. The Compass is based on the official guidelines, lumped together, in one very long sentence.

Keywords: CASS; Party ideology; Party organization; research; State Key Item Programme
