2Role Of China in the World Since 1989China has undergone drastic changes in the last quarter of a century. Most of these positive and negative transitions can be directly linked to the 1989 regime's decision. During this protest, troops shot at protesters with rifles and tanks and also to those who attempted to block military advance to Tiananmen Square (Calhoun, 1989). The death toll is estimated as 700000 people and many others were injured. After the incident, political systems stabilized.
