For courses on Modern Chinese History, Politics, Society, and Culture; a supplement for courses on East Asian civilization, World History and Civilization. Unlike other texts on modern Chinese history-which tend to be so encyclopedic as to be difficult to use in the classroom, or too pedantic to keep students' interest-this text is usably comprehensive, focused on "cutting edge" interpretations, and written in a style that engages students from beginning to end. It uses the theme of identities-of the nation itself and of the Chinese people-to probe the vast changes that have swept over China from late imperial times to the beginning of the twenty-first century. In so doing, it explores the range of identities China has chosen over time and those that outsiders have bestowed upon China and its people-showing how, as China rapidly modernizes, the issue of Chinese identity in the modern world looms large.
