The Rise of China

Social Sciences

Course Description

This course will take place on Zoom.

China—the world’s oldest continuous civilization—has undergone an astonishing transformation in a brief span of recent history. How did this happen? How can we account for China’s momentous—and almost wholly unanticipated—global rise? What are the prospects for China’s future economic growth? What does China’s rise mean for the West and for the rest of the world?

The rapid emergence of China as a key player in the global political and economic landscape has led many to question how China’s decision-makers perceive today’s world. How is China governed? How does it treat its minorities? What are some of its social policies? How does it use its newly created wealth to influence world affairs?
