Modern China

Release Date: 1998
Pages: 320
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This new history of modern China begins in the year 1800, with an account of China's approach to the threats of foreign imperialism and internal rebellion. The main themes of this late imperial period include the Opium Wars and their consequences, the rise and defeat of the mid-nineteenth-century rebellions and the frustrating attempts at 'self-strengthening'. As the twentieth century begins, the book offers an evaluation of the 1911 revolution and the May Fourth Movement which produced Chen Duxiu's attack on Confucianism. The main focus for the following period is the history of the Guomindang and the Chinese Communist party until the victory of the latter in 1949. The final section surveys the People's Republic of China, comparing the estimates that have been made of the leadership of Mao Zedong and Deng Xiaoping and the success - or otherwise - of the policies with which they have been associated. Written for the non-specialist and for the student looking for an authoritative introduction to recent scholarly work on China, this illustrated history provides a reliable and highly stimulating account of an endlessly fascinating country whose development is of paramount importance for the West.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The Cambridge History of Ancient China provides a survey of the cultural history of pre-imperial China. Fourteen leading specialists on early Chinese history and archaeology cover more than one thousand years. There are two chapters for each time-period - Shang, Western Zhou, Spring and Autumn, and Warring States: one on institutional history, based on both traditional and palaeographic literature, and one on material culture, based on archaeological evidence. There are also chapters on the Neolithic background, language, intellectual history, relations with Central Asia, and the debts of both the Qin and Han empires to these earlier time-periods. Although written by specialists, this Cambridge history aims to explain and describe pre-imperial China to an audience that will include scholars and students, as well as general readers without specialized knowledge of Chinese history. It can be consulted as a work of reference, or read continuously, alone or as part of The Cambridge History of China series.
