Summary

For courses on Modern Chinese History, Politics, Society, and Culture; a supplement for courses on East Asian civilization, World History and Civilization. Unlike other texts on modern Chinese history which tend to be either encyclopedic or too pedantic Revolution and Its Past is usably comprehensive, focused on cutting-edge interpretations, and written in a style that engages students from beginning to end. The Second Edition uses the theme of identities of the nation itself and of the Chinese people to probe the vast changes that have swept over China from late imperial times to the beginning of the twenty-first century. In so doing, it explores the range of identities China has chosen over time and those that outsiders have bestowed upon China and its people showing how, as China rapidly modernizes, the issue of Chinese identity in the modern world looms large.
