HIST 343 - Modern China

(3 S.H.)

This course permits in-depth study of the major events and issues in China’s dynamic transformation from the world’s oldest and largest bureaucracy to a revolutionary state and its subsequent evolution to the contemporary political and economic phenomenon we know today. Tracing pre-modern legacies that have helped shape China, the course covers the decline and fall of the Qing dynasty through the creation of Communist China and the unfolding of the post-Mao, so-called “reform era.” The course will also address the lesser-known areas of Tibet and Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, as well as Hong Kong and Taiwan. Grade only.
