Product description

This new edition covers the history of modern China since the 17th century and has been updated to examine the return of Hong Kong in 1997 and Macao in 1999. In his new concluding chapter, Hsu discusses the end of the last vestiges of foreign imperialism in China, as well as China's emergence as a regional and global superpower. US-China rivalry and the prospect of unification between China and Taiwan are also considered. In addition, the further reading sections have been entirely revised. This work is intended for students and scholars of modern Chinese history.
