Professor Guoqiang Dong received his Ph.D in 2002 from Nanjing University. His doctoral dissertation was “Modern Chinese Liberalist Intellectuals and their Political Trends—1910-1930.”
He currently teaches courses concerning modern Chinese history at Nanjing University and the Hopkins Nanjing Center, and focuses his research on the Chinese Cultural Revolution.
The forthcoming book The Cultural Revolution at Nanjing University as Social History will chronologically analyze important incidents that occurred at Nanjing University during 1966-1976, which can show us in greater detail what the Cultural Revolution meant to ordinary people and how they chose to play or were forced to play a role in it.
I believe this new dimension should offer a deeper understanding of the Cultural Revolution as a whole, as well as help to explain the structural flaws of the Stalinist-Maoist political model.
