Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Great Leap Forward did not involve the sort of collapse that you seem to be discussing elsewhere in the thread. It was a purely domestic phenomenon and the existing political structure remained intact.  Sticking with China I'd think that the drawn own end of Imperial China and its aftermath would be closer to what you're getting at.
