Forged in the furnace of the anti-Japanese war, Chinese Communism firsttook root in the North of China, later expanding to conquer allof China. The explosive growth of the Chinese communist movementduring the war years is well known, but the nature of thisexpansion remains disputed. Dagfinn Gatu examines a set of interrelatedissues that have so far not received comprehensive treatment  intthe North China regions where the CCP secured most of its recruitsand where its policy programmes were most severely tested by Japanesemilitary campaigns. The CCP strove to combine two objectives:socio-economic and political restructuring in favour of the poor and anestablished grassroots rural united front that included all socialstrata. The movement had a broad, if uneven, redistributive impact onpower resources in the region, leading to a structural fluidity thatlowered the barriers to a future revolution. History accelerated.
Dagfinn Gatu teaches politics at Japan Women’s University, Tokyo.
