Abstract : The pattern of conservatism and liberalization that has characterized Taiwan since 1960 continued in 1966. In domestic politics and foreign relations, Chiang Kai-shek kept the nation locked in its course of retaining absolute Kuomintang control, preparing for an imminent return to the mainland, and acquiring support for the ROC as the true China. This political rigidity was in contrast to a number of ambitious economic and social undertakings that pointed up a firm commitment within the leadership to Taiwan's development into a modern, progressive state.
