HIST 481 - The Chinese Revolution


Explores key passages in China’s long revolutionary struggle, beginning with Sun Yat-sen and the 1911 Revolution and ending with the pro-democracy movement and events at Tiananmen in 1989. The May 4th Movement, Chiang Kai-shek’s National Revolution of 1925-27, Mao Zedong’s peasant-based Communist revolution, and the Cultural Revolution are among the events to be explored from social and cultural, as well as political, perspectives. First-person accounts such as Edgar Snow’s Red Star Over China, primary documents, classic and revisionist Western accounts, Chinese literature in translation, and films like ‘Yellow Earth’ and ‘Farewell, My Concubine’ will be among the materials that students will use to explore this vast and still-controversial topic.
