On the brink of disaster in 1989, China has since become a political and economic power in the world. This unit of study examines the impact of globalisation on China with respect to the multilateral movements of ideas, capital and people. It will explore recent political, economic and social change in China, focusing on responses to China's expanded engagement with the outside world. Due attention will be paid to China's changing relations with its Asian neighbours and with Western countries.
