The Mao Zedong Thought Department

by | 22nd, October 2008

IN China:

Mao Xinyu (毛新宇), the grandson of Chairman Mao Zedong, looks set to become dean of China’s first undergraduate level university department to be dedicated to the study of Mao Zedong Thought.

A compulsory course entitled ‘An Overview of Mao Zedong Thought’ (毛泽东思想概论) has been taught in all mainland universities for years out of respect for the erstwhile Chairman, but the establishment of a Mao Zedong Thought department presided over by the Great Helmsman’s own grandson is an entirely new development.

Nepotism rules. They’re not so different…
