China's Reformation

- In most works of art, the tone, costumes, and setting can largely influence the mood of the story.

- Down’s (1957) proximity voting model highlights that voters evaluate a party based on a distance or proximity between the party’s proposed policy platform and their personal preferences.

Under this model, it is assumed that rational voters choose parties that represent their policy preferences best. This assumption is rational for several reasons. First, all parties value electoral benefits at least to a certain extent....   [tags: Democracy, Voting, Communist state, Centrism]

There the CCP developed political, social and economic policies which transformed the Party and gained it mass support. Dick Wilson argues that the beginnings of the policies that would lead to the Communist victory can be seen in “Mao’s opposition to the orthodoxy of the Comintern doctrine, preferring instead to tailor Marxist theory with Chinese socio-political realities.” Indeed, Mao Zedong immediately strengthened his position by claiming the ideological leadership of the CCP by publishing ‘On the New Stage’ in 1938 that called for the Sinification of Marxism....   [tags: Marxism, Communism, Chinese Civil War, Mao Zedong]
