. After staying in Sionching village for perhaps two years, he moved to Shanghai in about 1929. In 1931 he began working for the Comintern again. Abidin Kusno argues that this stay in Shanghai was an important period in shaping Tan Malaka's later actions during the Indonesian revolution of the late 1940s; the port city was nominally under Chinese sovereignty but was dominated first by European nations with trading concessions in the city, and then by Japan after its September 1932

in Beijing camped out at Tiananmen Square to mourn Hu's death and to protest against those who would slow reform. Their protests, which grew despite government efforts to contain them, although not strictly anti-Government in nature, called for an end to official corruption (Political corruption) and for the defense of freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution of the People's Republic of China. Protests also spread through many other cities, including Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Chengdu. In the People's Republic of China, Deng Xiaoping formally retired after the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989, to be succeeded by former Shanghai mayor Jiang Zemin. The crackdown in 1989 led to great woes in China's reputation globally, and sanctions resulted. The situation, however, would eventually stabilize. Deng's idea of checks and balances in the political system also saw its demise with Jiang consolidating power in the party, state and military. The 1990s saw healthy economic development, but the closing of state-owned enterprises and increasing levels of corruption and unemployment, along with environmental challenges continued to plague China, as the country saw the rise to materialism, crime, and new-age spiritual-religious movements such as Falun Gong. The 1990s also saw the peaceful handover of Hong Kong and Macau to Chinese control under the formula of One Country, Two Systems. China also saw a new surge of nationalism (Chinese nationalism) when facing crises abroad. Deng's reforms, however, have left a number of issues, mainly in the social and political arena, unresolved. As a result of his market reforms, it became obvious by the mid-1990s that many state-owned enterprises (owned by the central government, unlike TVEs (Town-village enterprise) publicly owned at the local level) were unprofitable and needed to be shut down to prevent them from being a permanent and unsustainable drain on the economy. As the pace of urbanization continued to increase, urban unemployment became a rising problem, and urban housing shortages caused the rise of low-income slums in major urban centres like Shanghai and Guangzhou. Furthermore, by the mid-1990s most of the benefits of Deng's reforms, particularly in agriculture, had run their course; rural incomes had become stagnant, leaving Deng's successors in search of new means to boost economic growth in rural areas, or else risk a massive social implosion. *Michael Hunter (composer) – ''Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas'', ''Grand Theft Auto IV *Jeehun Hwang – ''Battlezone (Battlezone (1998 video game))'', ''Interstate '76'', ''Interstate 82'', ''Heavy Gear'', ''Dark Reign (Dark Reign: The Future of War)'', ''Shanghai'', ''Spycraft'', ''Apocalypse'', ''Blast Chamber'', ''Fighter Squadron'', ''Grand Tour Racing'', ''Hyperblade'', ''MechWarrior 2: Ghost Bear's Legacy'', ''Mechwarrior 2'', ''MechWarrior 4: Mercenaries'', ''Three Kingdoms'', ''Quake : Dissolution Of Eternity'', ''Quake : Scourge Of Armagon'', ''Uprising (Uprising (video game))'' *Tsukumo Hyakutarou – ''Blast Wind'', ''Hyper Duel'', ''Thunder Force V'' In China Between 1933 and 1941, the Chinese city of Shanghai accepted unconditionally over 30,000 Jewish refugees escaping the Holocaust in Europe, a number greater than those taken in by Canada, New Zealand, South Africa and British India combined during World War II.

Shanghai

'''Shanghai''' is the largest Chinese (China) city by population Located in the Yangtze River Delta in East China, Shanghai sits on the south edge of the mouth of the Yangtze in the middle portion of the Chinese coast. The municipality borders the provinces of Jiangsu and Zhejiang to the north, south and west, and is bounded to the east by the East China Sea. url http: www.shanghai.gov.cn shanghai node23919 node24059 node24061 userobject22ai36489.html title Geographic Location work Basic Facts publisher Shanghai Municipal Government accessdate 14 September 2011

For centuries a major administrative, shipping, and trading town, Shanghai grew in importance in the 19th century due to European recognition of its favorable port (Port of Shanghai) location and economic potential. The city was one of five (Treaty ports) opened to foreign trade following the British victory over China in the First Opium War while the subsequent 1842 Treaty of Nanking and 1844 Treaty of Whampoa allowed the establishment of the Shanghai International Settlement and the French Concession (Shanghai French Concession). The city then flourished as a center of commerce between east and west, and became the undisputed financial hub of the Asia Pacific in the 1930s. title Shanghai: Global financial center? Aspirations and reality, and implications for Hong Kong url http: www.hkjournal.org PDF 2009_winter 3.pdf author Scott Tong publisher Hong Kong Journal date October 2009 accessdate 17 October 2011 However, with the Communist Party takeover of the mainland in 1949, trade was reoriented to focus on socialist countries, and the city's global influence declined. In the 1990s, the economic reforms (Economic reform in the People's Republic of China) introduced by Deng Xiaoping resulted in an intense re-development of the city, aiding the return of finance and foreign investment to the city.

Shanghai is a popular tourist destination renowned for its historical landmarks such as The Bund, City God Temple (City God Temple of Shanghai) and Yu Garden as well as the extensive Lujiazui skyline and major museums including the Shanghai Museum and the China Art Museum. It has been described as the "showpiece" of the booming economy of mainland China (Economy of China). title Shanghai: China's capitalist showpiece url http: news.bbc.co.uk 2 hi business 7373394.stm publisher BBC News date 21 May 2008 accessdate 7 August 2008 first Katie last Hunt title Of Shanghai... and Suzhou url http: www.thehindubusinessline.com life 2003 01 27 stories 2003012700170300.htm publisher The Hindu Business Line date 27 January 2003 accessdate 20 March 2008 archiveurl http: web.archive.org web 20050819054503 http: www.thehindubusinessline.com life 2003 01 27 stories 2003012700170300.htm archivedate 23 May 2009
