Revolutionary communist, philosopher and theorist, Mao made a significant impact of what is today in the People's Republic of China. In order to understand the complexity of Mao's regime, it is necessary to look at the context and period of history in which Communist China emerged as a nation. Chairman Mao, was popular in China, and was the major founder of the People's Republic China. His regime extended from 1949, when the China emerged as a communist state until 1976, year when he died. The political arguments and theories identified with his regime are known as Maoism.

Mao was the creator of modern China, but he has been regarded by many scholars as the figure, who almost destroyed the nation. Born in a rural community in China's Hunan province, Mao left home as a young man with the objective of having a modern education. He traveled to Beijing in 1918 and took part in a number of Marxist meetings. During that time, Mao avidly read the philosophical and political literary works of various Western authors. In 1920, he returned home with the objective of organizing the local workers into a trade union to improve their living and working conditions. A year later, he became a delegate of the first congress of the Chinese Communist party.
