Patrick Buck is a Ph.D. candidate at Michigan State University. He specializes in the history of modern China and Taiwan. Buck presents a comparative analysis of two important political events which both took place around the 1960s and 1970s: the Criticize Lin Biao, Criticize Confucius Campaign in China, and the Chinese Cultural Renaissance Campaign in Taiwan. He argues that these two movements were important in that they used history to help define each societies' respective values.
