Course Description

Starting with the origins of Chinese civilization, the course will relate the great days of Middle Kingdom dynasties, the 19th-century weakening and foreign exploitation, the revival under Mao despite his murderous policies, and the post-Mao modernization into a major economic and military power that now, under Xi Jinping, has become increasingly assertive and militarily threatening.
