University of California Press

This chapter examines ideological rivalries between the Blue Shirts Society and Chiang Kai-shek's CC clique. It explains that by competing with the CC clique for control over the new instruments of print capitalism, the Blue Shirts departed from the brief that they had been given by Chiang Kai-shek to concern themselves mainly with public security and police affairs. It also discusses the expansion of Deng Wenyi's publishing company Give Us a Lift Bookshop into a chain of stores that distributed Chiang loyalists' publications in Nanjing, Hankou, Nanchang, Changsha, Guiyang, and other cities.
