9780205726912: Revolution and Its Past: Identities and Change in Modern Chinese History (Mysearchlab Series for History)

Unlike other texts on modern Chinese history, which tend to be either encyclopedic or too pedantic, Revolution and Its Past is comprehensive but concise, focused on the most recent scholarship, and written in a style that engages students from beginning to end. The Third 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 early twenty-first century. In so doing, it explores the range of identities that China has chosen over time and those that outsiders have attributed to China and its people, showing how, as China rapidly modernizes, the issue of Chinese identity in the modern world looms large.

From the Back Cover:

  • Chapter 2 has been substantially reorganized to explore more fully the “genius” of the Chinese imperial system that gave rise to the wealth and power of the Chinese state in the mid-to-late eighteenth century and to its admiration and acclaim in the West at the time. 
  • Chapters 19 and 20 have been completely reorganized in response to readers’ suggestions: 
    • Chapter 19 now focuses on the economic reforms since 1980 and their many social, economic, political, cultural, and environmental ramifications, allowing students to concentrate on the economic changes of the reform period rather than mixing these changes with other developments chronologically in two chapters as the second edition had done. 
    • Chapter 20 analyzes the political, diplomatic, and cultural developments of the reform period, with special focus on the 2008 summer Olympic Games in Beijing, the spectacular success of which marked a milestone in China’s international reputation.
  • Reflects the most recent scholarship throughout the text.
