Background: For centuries China stood as a leading civilization , outpacing the rest of the world in the arts and sciences , but in the 19th and early 20th centuries , the country was beset by civil unrest , major famines , military defeats , and foreign occupation. After World War II , the Communists under MAO Zedong established an autocratic socialist system that , while ensuring China's sovereignty , imposed strict controls over everyday life and cost the lives of tens of millions of people. After 1978 , his successor DENG Xiaoping and other leaders focused on market-oriented economic development and by 2000 output had quadrupled. For much of the population , living standards have improved dramatically and the room for personal choice has expanded , yet political controls remain tight.
