Abstract

This paper traces the development of the Chinese weiquan movement in the context of political and social changes in the late 20th and later 21st century China. I argue that thus far weiquan commentators have overemphasized it as a novel social phenomenon. I demonstrate that it is part of the political legacy of China’s past.
