Abstract

In the early 1960s, Chiang Kai-shek abandoned efforts to recapture Mainland China and directed government energies to transforming Taiwan into a “model province.” Chiang hoped to create a microcosm of a glorious future China: orderly, prosperous, and patriotic. The Chinese people would then recognize the virtues of the Chiang family and of Kuomintang (KMT) party rule and overthrow the Communists. Chiang (or his son Ching-kuo) could then return to govern the Mainland, triumphing without firing a shot.
