Rise of the Red Engineersexplains the tumultuous origins of the class of technocratic officials who rule China today. In a fascinating account, author Joel Andreas chronicles how two mutually hostile groupsthe poorly educated peasant revolutionaries who seized power in 1949 and China's old educated elitecoalesced to form a new dominant class. After dispossessing the country's propertied classes, Mao and the Communist Party took radical measures to eliminate class distinctions based on education, aggravating antagonisms between the new political and old cultural elites. Ultimately, however, Mao's attacks on both groups during the Cultural Revolution spurred inter-elite unity, paving the wayafter his deathfor the consolidation of a new class that combined their political and cultural resources. This story is told through a case study of Tsinghua University, whichas China's premier school of technologywas at the epicenter of these conflicts and became the party's preferred training ground for technocrats, including many of China's current leaders.

Joel Andreas is Assistant Professor of Sociology at Johns Hopkins University. His work has appeared in various publications, including theAmerican Sociological Review,Theory and Society, andThe China Journal.
