Modern China

HIST 224
Fall 2006 not offered
Crosslisting: EAST 224
Certificates: International Relations

This course will examine the transformation of a country ruled by an emperor into a society managed by the Communist Party. Emphasis will be placed on major events and thinkers who wrestled with the challenge of imperialism in the 19th century and social revolution in the 20th century. Insofar as events--and especially political violence--often overcame the boundaries of thought, this course focuses on the tension between ideas and the rapidly changing social context that defined, limited and even murdered thinkers who had hope to change China for the better. Current economic and social developments will also be discussed and maybe explored further in guided research essays.
