Under these conditions, learning, scholarship and books were rehabilitated. As we can see in No. 27, books again were given as rewards, for example for studying the model behaviour of Lei Feng, for being a good member of the Communist Youth League, for helping the elderly. But the covers of the books testify to contents that are no longer politically correct, but aimed at improving one's self. In short, the printed word is no longer seen as potentially suspect, fraught with political heresy, but a true window on knowledge.
