This chapter discusses Deng Tuo's life in the Jin Cha Ji Border Region where he served the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) as a journalist and a propaganda chief. Deng Tuo's decade of propaganda service in Jin Cha Ji throws light on three central aspects of intellectual service in Mao's China. First, he served in a system that worked and attracted metropolitan intellectuals to the CCP service — the propaganda system of an emerging propaganda state that would dominate China in the years ahead. Second, Deng's approach to propaganda highlights the diversity of the intellectual service in the CCP, particularly the contrast of Deng's work and cultural pastimes with those of Party intellectuals in Yan'an. Finally, Deng's writings reveal the content of this intellectual service — the emerging mass line politics of the CCP made famous in Yan'an but begun earlier in Jin Cha Ji.
