"Healing the Wounds”: A Case Study of Dealing with Cultural Revolutionary Killings in Guangxi.

This study, firstly, will investigate why Guangxi authority responded to the center’s directives so late and bluntly. How did the center finally get Guangxi to obey its authority? Secondly, it will elucidate how the Center Work Group and Guangxi authority dealt with killings during the Cultural Revolution, and how the victims and perpetrators actively influenced the reversal process. Thirdly, it seeks to examine what the effects are for today’s society.
