"In the first systematic study of its kind, Hua-yu Li tackles one of the most important unresolved mysteries of the early history of the People's Republic of China - the economic policy shift of 1953. As a result of this policy shift, the moderate economic policies of "New Democracy" were abruptly terminated - much sooner than specified by the official party line - and replaced with a radical Stalinist economic program called the "general line for socialist transition." Utilizing the rich archival materials released in China since the mid-1980s and Russian archival information released in China since the early 1990s, Li presents an explanation for the policy shift."--BOOK JACKET.
