This chapter examines the issues of politics, sex and family in the context of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution (GPCR) in China during the period from 1966 to 1968. It proposes new hypotheses concerning some of the sources and forms of political critique during the GPCR. It argues that aside from the well-documented elite and socioeconomic cleavages between the winners and losers under socialism, other important dimensions of conflict were brought about by the different conceptualizations of proper marital and sexual and behavior and changes in family relations after the Communist revolution.

Keywords:   politics, sex, family, GPCR, China, marital behavior, sexual behavior, Communist revolution
