Deng Xiao·ping

 (dŭng′ shou′pĭng′, shyou′-) also Teng Hsiao-ping (tŭng′ shyou′pĭng′, dŭng′) 1904-1997.
Chinese political leader who was the de facto ruler in the People's Republic of China from the late 1970s until 1989. He attempted to modernize the socialist system in China, but his reputation suffered due to his sanctioning of the army's violent suppression of the pro-democracy protest in Tiananmen Square (1989), and he officially retired shortly thereafter.
