Chapter Summary

The history of the People's Republic of China from its founding to today has progressed through three stages: the 17 years from October 1949 to May 1966, the 10 years from June 1966 to the end of 1976, and the 28 years from 1978 until now. The author believes in the transition from "17" to "10" was a natural progression. "17," especially the particular period of 1957-65, provided for the Cultural Revolution a political paradigm, mental preparation, cultural accumulation, and even "cast and crew roles," especially the dramatic scenes and plots of the masses' lives. It should be emphasized that refl ecting upon and grasping the historical connections between "17" and the Cultural Revolution is not only crucial, but also relatively urgent.
