(p.85) Chapter 8 The Blue Shirts’ “Fascism”

Frederic Wakeman

University of California Press

This chapter examines the fascist principle of the Blue Shirts Society (BSS) in China. It explains that despite the denial of the Goumindang about the existence of BSS, several police reports confirmed that there were individual members of the Fuxingshe and the Chinese Revolutionary Comrades Association (CRCA) who frequently identified themselves as belonging to the Blue Shirts. It discusses Chiang Kai-shek's creation of cliques within the Generalissimo's own power structure and the appointment of brothers Chen Guofu and Chen Lifu as leaders of the so-called CC clique.

Keywords:   Blue Shirts Society, China, Goumindang, Fuxingshe, CRCA, Chiang Kai-shek, Chen Guofu, Chen Lifu, CC clique
