The ban supposedly began in 1965 and ended in 1991. But the sources
seem to basically quote each other or quote other websites-- even
Wikipedia (not always a reliable source) refers to an article on the
Huffington Post. I'd feel a lot better about this claim if some scholar
of Chinese History could verify it.
