5 Leadership of China The People's Republic of China was established in October The Communist Party assumed control of all media in the country and used it to promote the image of Mao and the Party. The Chinese people were exhorted to devote themselves to build and strengthen their country

7 Mao Zedong Mao s first political campaigns after founding the People s Republic were land reform and the suppression of counterrevolutionaries, which centered on mass executions, often before organized crowds. Mao himself claimed that a total of 700,000 people were executed during the years
8 Following the consolidation of power, Mao launched the First Five-Year Plan ( ). The plan aimed to end Chinese dependence upon agriculture in order to become a world power. With the Soviet Union's assistance new industrial plants were built and agricultural production eventually came to where industry was beginning to produce enough capital that China no longer needed the USSR's support. Mao & Stalin
9 The Great Leap Forward The success of the First Five Year Plan was to encourage Mao to instigate the Second Five Year Plan, the Great Leap Forward, in Land was taken from landlords and more wealthy peasants and given to poorer peasants. Large scale industrialization projects were also undertaken.

12 Communes during the Great Leap The Great Leap Forward planned to develop agriculture and industry. Mao believed that both had to grow to allow the other to grow. Industry could only prosper if the work force was well fed, while the agricultural workers needed industry to produce the modern tools needed for modernization. To allow for this, China was reformed into a series of communes. People in a commune gave up their ownership of tools, animals etc so that everything was owned by the commune.

20 Mao and The Cultural Revolution Facing the prospect of losing his place on the political stage, Mao responded by launching the Cultural Revolution in One of the main focuses of the Cultural Revolution was the abolishment of the Four Olds: Old Customs, Old Culture, Old Habits, and Old Ideas.
21 Red Guards Role in the Cultural Revolution Throughout the Cultural Revolution, the Red Guards traveled throughout China, going to schools, universities, and institutions, spreading the teachings of Mao.
22 was published by the Government of the People's Republic of China from April 1964 until collection of quotations excerpted from Mao Zedong's past speeches and publications requirement for every Chinese citizen to own, to read, and to carry it at all times during the later half of Mao's rule, especially during the Cultural Revolution. Mao s Little Red Book
23 Red Guards Role in the Cultural Revolution The role of Red Guard was mainly to attack the "Four Olds" of society, that is what is believed to be old ideas, cultures, habits, and customs of China at the time. Red Guards in Beijing and elsewhere in China had taken to the streets from their schools. They made posters, speeches, criticized Party leaders, and some committed violent acts in the name of the Cultural Revolution.
24 The Cultural Revolution The decision granted people the most extensive freedom of speech the People's Republic has ever seen, but this was a freedom severely determined by the Maoist ideological climate and, ultimately, by the People's Liberation Army and Mao's authority over the Army
25 The Cultural Revolution Many religious buildings such as temples, churches, mosques, and cemeteries were closed down and sometimes looted and destroyed In August and September, there were 1,772 people murdered in Beijing alone. In Shanghai in September there were 704 suicides and 534 deaths related to the Cultural Revolution
26 The End of the Cultural Revolution In October 1968, Liu Shao-chi was expelled from the party and this is generally seen by historians as the end of the Cultural Revolution. Mao had witnessed the removal of a potential rival in the party and therefore saw no need for the Cultural Revolution to continue.
