Abstract:

I went to China in 1973 as co-leader of a team of delegates from U.S. teacher organizations, such as the National Association of School Superintendents. Before the trip, most of them had been impressed by Maoism, aware of the removal of signs of rank from military uniforms, thinking China was going to be the first egalitarian society. I said, "Well, when you get there you can see for yourself." They were angry with me, thinking I was some right-wing type. When we crossed the border from Hong Kong, we were met by two Communist Party officials. One of the first things they did was ask me for my protocol list, so they would know who should ride up front in the Red Flag limousine and who should ride in the gray bus.
