Pub. Date: 07/27/2011
Publisher: Taylor & Francis
As China moves toward a more open society, a market-oriented economy, and an increasing role in international affairs, China Since 1949 focuses on the People's Republic's rapid transformation during the past half-century. Linda Benson provides a coherent narrative of the major events in China's recent past and a balanced account of China's on-going transformation.. She also offers a distillation of recent research including some of the most recent available. As with all books in the Seminar Studies in History series, China Since 1949 includes a section of original documents, a 'Who's Who', a chronology and maps.
