Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the impact of the death of Deng Xiaoping, leader of the Communist Party of China (CCP), on the future of the China Disabled Persons' Federation (CDPF). It explains that there were concerns that the members of the Deng family would be prosecuted and that Deng Xiaoping's son Deng Pufang might lose his influence to keep the CDPF running. The chapter relates the author's conversation with Deng Pufang and mentions that his assertions that the Federation's trajectory in the aftermath of his father's death will remain unchanged seem to be bearing out.
