In this book, Cheng Teng has reconstructed the theory of historical materialism on the basis of his critique & synthesis of Karl Marx, Harold Demsetx, Max Weber, & Immanuel Kant's theories concerning the devleopment of private property in connection with division of labor, & moral & religious ideas. A wide range of other scholars is called upon in establishing the ahthor's critique & synthesis. In applying this reconstructed theory to the historical event, the author reveals the causal connection between the socialist public ownership established in the Socialist Reform Movement of the 1950s & China's Great Cultural Revolution from 1966 to 1976, & the cause of the rise & downfall of the communist system in general. It is a work of intricate scholarship, both in depth & breadth or worldwide relevance, & a revolutionary theory in the study of history.
