Peng Zhen's career in the CPC has spanned more than six decades. From his earliest days as an underground Party organizer to his final decade where he advocated replacing arbitrary Party fiat with formal legislation, Peng has had a singular impact on the culture of law and political authority in China. Peng's views on law and political authority have evolved from an instrumentalist approach calling for the use of law in pursuit of the goals of Leninist discipline to one emphasizing greater procedural and institutional regularity. Such views have permitted a greater role for law and legal institutions in China than would have been possible without him.
