POLS 058. Contemporary Chinese Politics (CP)


Just how strong is China? Is it on the path to great power status? This course considers those questions by examining the rise of China in recent decades, along with the political, economic and social backdrop to this historic development. Topics will include China's political and economic development, urban and rural unrest, regionalism and nationalism, music and the arts as forms of political expression, environmental politics, law, justice, and human rights, and the role of the military in Chinese politics. Literature, music, online media and video chat with experts will supplement traditional written materials.
