Abstract

Premier Zhou Enlai (March 1898–January 1976) was the second most important leader in the history of the People’s Republic of China (PRC or “China” hereafter), after only Chairman Mao Zedong. Zhou was the first premier and foreign minister of the PRC and served in the premiership until his death. Mao and Zhou were members of the Central Politburo Standing Committee, the supreme decision-making organ of the Communist Party of China (CPC), from its inception in 1956 to their own deaths in 1976. If Mao was the “father” of the nation, Zhou was the “mother.” While Mao was feared as a ruthless ruler, Zhou was revered as a compassionate leader.
