Bryan Gomez Mr. Fede Holocaust/Gencoide Studies I 2 February 2018 Mao Zedong Great Leap Forward Mao Zedong died in 1976. The production of food became the nation's highest goal. In order to convince peasants to produce more food, Deng introduced incentives to peasants. Many communes were ended and families were given land to farm. In addition, small private businesses were permitted in the cities, which would be owned by individuals. This new freedom in economics led to ideas of freedom in government. In the spring of 1989, thousands of pro- democracy students demonstrated in Beijing's Tiananmen Square. As the world watched, Premier Li Peng ordered tens of thousands of Chinese troops into the Square to break up the demonstrations. Many students were killed; others were executed after brief trials. Still other, were imprisoned or never heard from again. “The Tiananmen Square massacre" showed the world hoe brutal the Chinese government could be toward its people.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
