For centuries, China was the hegemon of the East. In the 19th century, she suffered a dramatic collapse leading to a slow, painful recovery. Today, she challenges America's global supremacy. China's new Silk Road project claims Eurasia as her proper sphere of influence, threatens to exclude America and to leave Europe isolated in the continent's north western corner. During this course, you will explore China's imperial legacy, the Century of Humiliation, the civil wars, the triumph of communism, the divergent policies of Mao, Deng and Xi and possible future scenarios.
