Abstract

The success of the Anti-Japanese War opened a new window of opportunity for China to undertake peaceful state building. However, the long bitter strife between CPC and KMT greatly diminished any hope of reconciliation between the two parties. Following a 3-year civil war, CPC emerged victorious. With the end of war nearing, CPC set about to implement its state-building plans. The CPC revolutionaries took a different view about the country’s future than KMT’s Three People Principles; they believed the ROC (Republic of China) legal system was a symbol of the old, something that must be smashed, and replaced by a brand new communist one.
