Abstract

This thesis will examine the role of Jiang Qing in the events of China known as the Cultural Revolution, and show that this revolution was affected in its political as well as its cultural aspects by her influence. Historians have not carefully examined Jiang Qing's role in China's history, and have commonly regarded her simply as "Mao's wife." The theme that will be developed in this thesis is that she was of major importance in China during the years 1966-1976, the period of the Cultural Revolution. Materials from a variety of sources are analyzed and synthesized to support this position.
