A Study on Political Thoughts Produced in the Taiping Rebellion

Xiaoyang WEI


The Taiping Rebellion which happened in the past China lasted fifteen years, during which a wealth of political thoughts have been produced and these thoughts have promoted the development and progress of China’s politics as well as inspired the morale of poor masses in that period to fight against imperialism and feudalism. In general, the political thoughts produced during the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom period have undergone a process of gradual development, which are of great significance and inspiration to the development of contemporary Chinese politics. Hong Xiuquan and Hong Rengan are two main representatives of this Rebellion, with The Land System of the Heavenly Kingdom and New Administrative Paper as the main works.
