Former Chinese President Yang Shangkun, a once-powerful army general purged earlier this decade by the late Deng Xiaoping, died Monday in Beijing at 91, state media reported.
Despite his advanced age, Yang was the most vigorous among the "eight immortals," a group of powerful party elders whose few surviving members have had little to do in recent years aside from occasionally offering advice.
Fearing that the Yang clan might scuttle his plans to have Communist Party Secretary Jiang Zemin succeed him after his death, paramount leader Deng Xiaoping stripped the two brothers of their party posts and reshuffled a number of military commanders affiliated with them in 1992.

BEIJING -- Former Chinese President Yang Shangkun, a once-powerful army general purged earlier this decade by the late Deng Xiaoping, died Monday in Beijing at 91, state media reported.
Yang played a vital role in modernizing the army in the 1980s.
Early in the pro-democracy student protests of 1989, Yang is said to have agreed with then-Premier Zhao Ziyang that the student movement was patriotic and well-intentioned, not a "counterrevolutionary rebellion," as the hard-liners tagged it.

 Working Papers-The Names of Rectification
Yang concludes his second point by citing Liu Shaoqi's summation on inner-Party struggle (one of the twenty-two rectification study documents) and by reflecting on comments raised at the forum which suggested the attacks on Wang Shiwei had gone far beyond the constraints on struggle laid down by Liu.
Yang explains that the attacks have been warranted: "this is a struggle outside the party" and is not subject to the protection of Liu's rules (139).
Yang tries to separate Wang Shiwei from the solution and instead place the contested meaning of "friendship" into the delegitimizing periphery of values associated with "selfishness" and "factionalism." Naturally, Yang describes proper friendship as "class love, comradely love, and the great love of collectivism" (143).

 Deng Completes Major Army Purge
In one of the biggest shakeups in the history of the People's Liberation Army, Deng has stripped his longtime comrade-in-arms, President Yang Shangkun, and the president's half-brother, Gen. Yang Baibing, of their control of the military, and sidelined more than half of China's generals because they were believed to be loyal to the Yangs.
Like Deng, Yang, 85, is one of the few remaining veterans of the historic Long March of 1934-35, which saved the fledgling Communist army.
Although the purge of the Yangs' proteges was widely welcomed in the military, there is some concern about the level of discontent among those who have been removed, Western analysts said.
