Abstract : The article, drawing on Chou's role in the Cultural Revolution, seeks to present a reasonably accurate picture of Chou's style by summarizing his role during the critical first year of the Cultural Revolution by generalizing about the manner in which he conducts his political life, and by comparing these statements with similar declarations concerning the 'operational codes' of Mao Tse-tung and Lin Piao. The article addresses the question of Chou's alleged charisma and speculates about his future status after Mao. (Author)
