Research on Chen Hansheng’s Rural Surveys during the Agrarian Revolutionary War in China
Tingyao Zhu

Chen Hanshengwas a well-known scholar and social activist in China. During the 1920s and 1930s, when Chen worked at the Institute of Social Studies of the Academia Sinica, he led academic teams to carry out a series of rural surveys in Northeast China, East China, North China, and South China, providing empirical support for the Communist Party of China to hold on the guidelines of the Agrarian Revolution. Under the principle of “problem-oriented,”Chen Hansheng used Marxist theories and methods to study China’s rural issues with rural production relations, which significantly contributed to the CPC’s revolutionary victory and cultivated a group of Marxist scholars for modern China’s academic research. Chen’s rural surveys have significant value to China’s Economics, Sociology, and Political Science.
