Details

Despite the verdict of the Cultural Revolution as a disaster for China, a number of scholars have called for reexamining socialist science under Mao’s aegis. This collection examines the viewpoints on social and scientific enterprises of that era, probing medicine, the space program and the one-child policy as outcomes of earlier Maoist science.
