The Chinese Revolution, broadly defined, was the first national liberation in Asia which experienced cooperation between nationalists and committed communists. That the coalition ended in disarray highlighted the contradictions between forms of nationalism and revolutionary socialism. This talk, based on my recently published monograph, explores the ways in which the Chinese Nationalist Party, founded by Sun Yat-sen and subsequently shaped by the ideologies of Dai Jitao and Chiang Kai-shek, succeeded and failed to build a new society governed by what can be called “capitalism without capitalism.”
