Deng Xiaoping listen (August 22, 1904 – February 19, 1997) was a                 
prominent Chinese politician and reformer, and the late leader of the Communist   
Party of China (CPC). Deng never held office as the head of state or the head of   
government, but served as the de facto leader of the People's Republic of China   
from 1978 to the early 1990s. He developed "Socialism with Chinese                 
characteristics" and Chinese economic reform, also known as the "socialist         
market economy", and opened China to the global market.                           
Inheriting a China wrought with social and institutional woes left over from the   
Cultural Revolution and other mass political movements of the Mao era, Deng was   
the core of the "second generation" Communist Party leadership. Deng is           
generally credited with developing China into one of the fastest growing           
economies in the world and vastly raising the standard of living.
