This course will address major themes in China’s tumultuous but dramatic transformation, from being a humiliated nation with an enormous debt (at the time of the Boxer Rebellion) to becoming a technological and economic power house in the world, between 1900 to the present. China’s history has been molded by a myriad of actors, circumstances, ideologies, internal and external forces. It will utilize a variety of primary sources and the most recent scholarship on this period. CTW, GDCN
