The Making of Modern China

A non-accredited history and heritage course

Course Code

CLL 23/24_NA_119
Course Description

In the 1940s, China was a broken nation, ravaged by the Second World War and the civil war between communists and nationalists, yet today it is the world’s second superpower, with a burgeoning economy, dynamic tech sector, and an increasingly assertive military. What caused this dramatic transformation? How did it affect ordinary Chinese citizens? And what did it cost in terms of human rights and personal freedoms? This course will focus on the period bookmarked by Mao and Xi, covering such key events as the Cultural Revolution, the post-Mao reforms, the Tiananmen Square massacre, and China’s rise as a global superpower.
