Chapter Summary

A noteworthy feature of both China's Destiny and Chinese Economic Theory is that they appear to have been designed particularly to reach and influence the students of China. At critical times, the entire Chinese student body has flared up in open revolt against repressive or reactionary Government policies. Both China's Destiny and Chinese Economic Theory paint a seriously distorted picture of Chinese history, a picture particularly notable for its glaring omissions. China's Destiny, for example, almost completely ignores the struggles of the Chinese people against the oppression of their own rulers. As presented in China's Destiny, the story of China from 1928 on is one of important constructive activities by a "new and revivified" Kuomintang. The Kuomintang excuse for the military blockade against the most active defenders of Chinese soil, a blockade in which the Central Government employed its best troops and equipment, was that the guerrillas were Communist-led.
