Between the beginning of 1995 and September 1997, when the Fifteenth Party Congress was convened in Beijing, Chinese political waters were roiled by the exchange of heated polemics as political leaders jockeyed for position and tried to influence the outcome of the congress. This was a period of leadership transition in which Deng Xiaoping apparently became incapacitated before finally expiring in February 1997. Although Jiang Zemin had served as general secretary since June 1989, his position was not necessarily secure, and the policy direction he would follow was also uncertain. It was, in short, a period of high stakes politics.
