Units of Study
HSTY2640 - Twentieth Century China
Semester 1, 2011 | Credit Points: 6
Coordinator: Helen Dunstan
In the 1920s, China was likened to a sleeping lion - one whose roar would shake the world when it awoke. This prediction has already proved true more than once. Why was China ever said to be "asleep"? How did a whole nation awaken, to what, and with what results? This unit of study traces the forces of nationalism and revolution through China's tumultous twentieth century. We focus upon making sense, in Chinese terms, of events that outsiders have found baffling.
