Focusing on the unique mobilization-reform structure both in political life and as represented in literature, this chapter examines the extent to which this structure became an underlying political and cultural topos in socialist China and how this topos was manifested in literature and through narrative. Recognizing the historical particularities of this structure in relation to postrevolutionary transformation, Cai brings in such key categories as the masses, cadres, and intellectuals and examines the ways in which each category is presented in literature as well as the various contradictions illumined through narrative practices.
