This collection begins with the cultural renaissance of the early 20th century, the rebellion against Western and Japanese imperialism after 1919, the rise of the Nationalist and Communist movements and their conflict in mainland China until the Communist victory of 1949. After that, the focus is on the revolutionary changes under Mao Zedong's regime, and the ideological struggles after his death. Under Deng Ziaoping economic reform prompted rapid growth but also led to calls for greater political freedom, culminating in the Tiananmen protests of 1989. The final chapters illustrate the problems the regime faces today, including the ambitions of the Tibetan minority, and social issues such as unemployment and corruption. Next to domestic issues, China's role in the Korean War and changing relations with the USA and Soviet Union are also covered. The collection includes classic documents as well as less accessible extracts, including a number available in English for the first time. Anyone interested inthe modern history of China will findChina Since 1919an invaluable source of information.
