During China's Cultural Revolution, Chairman Mao Zedong's "rustication program" resettled seventeen million urban youths, known as "sent downs," to the countryside for manual labor and socialist reeducation. This book, the first truly comprehensive study of the program to be published in either English or Chinese, examines the mechanisms and dynamics of state craft in China, from the rustication program's inception in 1968 to its official termination in 1980 and actual completion in the 1990s. China's Sent-Down Generation assesses the program's origins, development, organization, implementation, performance, and public administrative consequences. The author demonstrates the rustication program's profound long-term consequences for China's bureaucracy, for the spread of corruption, and for the families traumatized by this mandatory social experiment.
