INAF-326 Politics of China
Spring for 2016-2017
This course provides students with an in-depth knowledge of China’s domestic politics. As it has transitioned from dynastic rule to communism to a socialist market economy, China has undergone revolution, reform and the most rapid economic and social change experienced in the last century, becoming one of the most dynamic and important countries in the world today. This course explores key debates concerning China’s political system, major political events in the modern history of China, political implications of economic reform, and achievements as well as limits of political reform. Although the focus of this course is on China's domestic politics, there will be some discussion of how international factors have affected China's political development and of how China compares with other countries in East Asia.
