This paper describes several papers from John K. Fairbanks collection of papers, "Chinese Thought and Institutions", and explains how they tend to show that Confucianism helped gear China for Communism because it fostered different expectations of government and the state.
From the Paper:"John King Fairbank (1907-1991) was born in North Dakota and educated at Phillips Exeter Academy, the University of Wisconsin, and Harvard, before he went to Oxford in 1929, as a Rhodes scholar. He spent most of 1929 to 1936 researching in `Peiping', as Beijing was then called. He then returned to the United States and was made a professor of modern Chinese history at Harvard. (AHA, 1993) Professor Fairbank wrote on American trade and diplomacy involving China and with Professor S.Y. Teng, on China's response to Western influence."
