This chapter examines the role of Jiang Qing, Mao Zedong's wife, on the Cultural Revolution in China. Mao's marriage to Jiang had caused considerable consternation among his colleagues because of her sexual mores and her possible Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) connections in Shanghai. Jiang's most significant political involvement during the 1950s was in the performing arts, where she held a number of different positions, including as chief of the secretariat of the Central Committee's General Office.

Keywords:   Jiang Qing, Mao Zedong, Cultural Revolution, KMT, performing arts, political history, China
