    Use of the pronouns.

    At the following texts :

    " Deng Xiaoping, China's leader, denounced him, and party cells across the country were ordered to study and criticise Mr Fang's views, usefully gaining him a readership of millions." ("The Economist" - Apr 14th 2012 - http://www.economist.com/node/21552551).

    "
    Adam Perry is a Product Manager for AutoCAD Mechanical. In this series, he shares design and drafting tips to save you time." (http://knowledge.autodesk.com/suppor...ZlWDZcYSI.html).
    Please, What are the functions of the pronouns him (marked), at the first text, and you (marked) at the second ?
