The third edition of this outstanding textbook vividly describes China's extraordinary metamorphosis from a traditional self-sufficient empire into a modern nation. Professor Hsu surveys the main currents of modern Chinese history from 1600 to the present, focusing throughout on the forces that shaped China's political, diplomatic, intellectual, social, and economic history. Completely revised and up to date, the text now devotes considerable coverage to the period from 1949 to 1981 and includes an entirely new section on China since the death of Mao."
