    There is no question that, throughout the history of China, there exists a trend of corruption which never quite seems to vanish, no matter what the Chairman at the time has tried in terms of combatting it. The issue came into primary focus in 1989 with anti-government demonstrations that forced the leadership to wage war against corruption, for fear of losing legitimacy as a party.
