abstract

In recent year Chen Cheng’s personal diaries have been donated to the Academia Sinica’s Modern History Archives. This is a very valuable source to study Chen Cheng’s personal history as a military and a politician, but also to gain a better understanding of the inner history of the Guomindang and its government and political dynamics before and after 1949. Using both Chen Cheng' diary and Chiang Kai-shek’s diary, this paper investigates the relationship between Chen and Chiang Kai-shek in Taiwan as transpires from these documents. It focuses on some key moments of their relationship in the after-1949 period, as the first month after the Guomindang's retreat to Taiwan, and the span of time between 1958 and 1961, just before Chen Cheng’s withdrawal from the political scene.
