ABSTRACT
Ever since the Communists became masters of China, they have sought to create the impression of a giant in full control of well-planned and efficient economic and political machine. Mao Tse-tung's rejection of the sacred premise of Communist theology, which is the absence of conflicting interests between the Communist State and the people it rules, reflects the seriousness of China's economic problems and the troublesome political issues. This article examines the Communist program of agrarian reform in China and how it is always conditioned by one consideration only: the ultimate seizure of political power. It evaluates the tactics of the Chinese Communists and how it govern its policies.
