Mao Zedong, also transliterated as Mao Tse-tung and commonly referred 
to as Chairman Mao (December 26, 1893  September 9, 1976), 
was a Chinese Communist revolutionary and the founding father of the People's Republic of China, 
which he governed as Chairman of the Communist Party of China
 from its establishment in 1949 until his death in 1976. 
His Marxist-Leninist theories, military strategies and political policies are collectively 
known as Marxism-Leninism-Maoism or Mao Zedong Thought.

Born the son of a wealthy farmer in Shaoshan, Hunan, 
Mao adopted a Chinese nationalist and anti-imperialist outlook 
in early life, particularly influenced by the events 
of the Xinhai Revolution of 1911 and May Fourth Movement of 1919. 
Mao converted to Marxism-Leninism while working at Peking University and became 
a founding member of the Communist Party of China (CPC), 
leading the Autumn Harvest Uprising in 1927. 
During the Chinese Civil War between the Kuomintang (KMT) and the CPC,
 Mao helped to found the Red Army, led the Jiangxi Soviet's radical land policies 
and ultimately became head of the CPC during the Long March. 
Although the CPC temporarily allied with the KMT under the United Front 
during the Second Sino-Japanese War (193745), 
after Japan's defeat China's civil war resumed and in 1949 Mao's 
forces defeated the Nationalists who withdrew to Taiwan.

On October 1, 1949 Mao proclaimed the foundation of the People's Republic of China (PRC), 
a single-party state controlled by the CPC. In the following years Mao solidified his 
control through land reforms and through a psychological victory
 in the Korean War, and through campaigns against landlords, people he termed 
"counter-revolutionaries", and other perceived enemies of the state. 
In 1957 he launched a campaign known as the Great Leap Forward that aimed to rapidly transform 
China's economy from an agrarian economy to an industrial one, 
which led to widespread famine and is estimated to have resulted in up to 45 million deaths 
through starvation and other causes. 
In 1966, he initiated the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, a program to remove
 "counter-revolutionary" elements of Chinese society that lasted 10 years 
and which was marked by violent class struggle, 
widespread destruction of cultural artefacts and unprecedented elevation of Mao's personality
 cult and which is officially regarded as a "severe setback" for the PRC
 In 1972, Mao welcomed US president Richard Nixon in Beijing, signalling a policy of opening China, 
which was furthered under Deng Xiaoping's rule in China.

A controversial figure, Mao is regarded as one of the most important individuals in modern world history.
 Supporters credit him with modernising China and building it into a world power, promoting the status of women, 
improving education and health care, and increasing life expectancy as China's population grew
 from around 550 to over 900 million during the period of his leadership.
 He is also known as a theorist, military strategist, poet, and visionary.
In contrast, critics consider him a dictator who severely damaged traditional Chinese culture, 
perpetrated systematic human rights abuses, 
and who is responsible for an estimated 40 to 70 million deaths through starvation, forced labour and executions, 
ranking his tenure as the top incidence of democide in human history.
