“Contemporary China” aims to place the dynamics of recent social and economic change in historical perspective. Proceeding both thematically and chronologically, it familiarizes students with the deep continuities associated with phenomena such as urbanization, environmental challenges, cultural expectations and gender norms. China’s political system will also be examined analytically to provide students with a good grasp of its evolution and distinctive features.
