This course examines China’s modern experience.
Considered “modern” by the 12th century, the country was condemned to “modernize” again in the 19th century. How did this reversal of fortune come to pass?
Topics include technological change since the 12th century, imperialism, warlordism, the birth of the nation-state, and the rise of communism.
