Course Description The purpose of this course is to introduce MA students and advanced undergraduate students to critical issues surrounding China’s political and economic affairs, both domestically and internationally. The course is organized into five sections. In the first section, it discusses China’s imperial past and the Republican Era. The next section covers China’s radicalization under Mao. The third section investigates China’s economic reform under Deng. The fourth section deals with the consequences of China’s economic development. The fifth section focuses on the role China plays in international affairs and the implication of China’s economic rise. It concludes with some discussion on China’s economic future. Throughout the course, we will focus on identifying the key players and pay special attention to the preferences of these key players and the incentives and constraints facing them.
The course does not presume any prior knowledge of China or Chinese language, although some familiarity with basic concepts in political science or macroeconomics will be helpful.
