CHINA-LITTLE RED BOOK-CULTURAL REVOLUTION

Employees of the Government Printing House pack in 1971 in Bejing copies of Mao Zedong's "Little Red Book," the bible of the Maoism, teaching the philosophy of Mao -- a revolutionary ideology based on Marxism-Leninism adapted to Chinese conditions. Maoism shifted the focus of revolutionary struggle from the urban workers or proletariat to the countryside and the peasantry. Mao, who was Chairman of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) from 1935 until his death in 1976, launched in 1966 the "Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution", directed against those CCP "party leaders taking the capitalist road". Mao's shock troops were to be the Red Guards, principally middle-school and university students who were to draw inspiration from Mao himself-now supreme authority in all matters.
