HIEA 3161 - China Encounters the World

A lecture and discussion course focusing on how China has encountered the world in the past 400 years, with an emphasis on the late 19th and 20th-centuries. In particular, it will analyze the impact of the Chinese ‘victim mentality’ in order to pursue an understanding of why radical revolutions have dominated China’s modern history. While the emphasis of this course is China’s external relations, foreign policy issues will be examined in the context of China’s political, economic and social developments in broader terms.
