HIST 369 - Modern China (1750 - present) (AS)

Has a dual focus: China’s internal development during this period and its complex interaction with the newly dominant powers of the West and Japan. Begins with the prosperous “high Qing,” and then turns to the tumultuous Taiping rebellion of the mid-19th century and the political, military, and social changes it engendered. Then, the Chinese efforts to meet the challenges of the new world order first through a Confucian revival and later through embracing Western technology and ideas are examined. Students trace the development of the Chinese Communist party and the KMT, warlordism, China’s involvement in World War II, and the founding of the People’s Republic of China. Concludes with a look at the effects of the economic and political reforms of the past two decades. (AS)
