The Central Nationalities Institute, closed down during the Cultural Revolution, was reopened; national forms were once more described in favorable terms; and selective quotations by Mao from the pre-Hundred Flowers period when he had supported the flourishing of nations began to slip into print. Even more symptomatic of a shift was the re-elevation to good standing of Deng Xiaoping, along with a number of non-Han leaders such as Ulanhu who had been purged during the Cultural Revolution. An article that appeared in the Bejing Review in mid-1974 highlighted how far the pendulum had swung away from rapid assimilation: it suggested that the national peculiarities of the minorities would outlast even the eradication of classes and the worldwide victory of communism—that is, they would survive indefinitely.
