Description

This study investigates the entire process of deviant labelling under the leadership of Chairman Mao between 1950 and 1978. Through the use of life history materials that include autobiographies and memoirs published in both English and Chinese, the causes of the labelling, the lives of the deviants and the consequences of deviant labels on individuals, family members and significant others are thoroughly analyzed. It documents the impacts of labelling on the self-concept of deviants and the creation of a new socially and politically defined deviant class, the "enemies of the people" in Mao's China.
