Abstract:

Challenging the common wisdom that the prerevolutionary Kuomintang state (1927-1949) failed to promote economic growth, consolidate domestic political forces, and prevent the Communists from coming to power,
this paper claims that such argument does not give a proper credit to the Kuomintang’s modernizing accomplishments achieved in the extremely difficult conditions. Bringing attention to the international contexts of Chinese modernization, it argues that it was the devastating experience of total war against Japan, rather than alleged ineffectiveness of the KMT government, which undermined the Nationalist state and created structural conditions for the Communist takeover.
