Given the important role of ideology, I have established several different ideologies and the fundamental ideological change, which has influenced the leadership of CCP in their creation of these strategies.

My findings in this analysis are several innovative strategies by the CCP leaders, created to adjust the party to the variable conditions of the society, a consequence of Deng's reform. Their devotion to the political system rooted in different ideological thought has made the impossible possible. (Less)
