Syllabus for Use in Modern Chinese History.
This syllabus, for use in a one semester course on the history of modern China, covers the period from the Manchu domination in 1644 to the present. The course is designed to create an interest in China, emphasizing the social and cultural aspects of history, as well as the political and economic dimensions. A narrative summary of course content is divided into these two major periods: 1) The Ch'ing Dynasty to 1911, and 2) The Republic. The first section presents an overview of significant events and influential leaders, noting such topics as: the Manchu influence, Chinese cultural traditions, geographic factors, Western influence, religion, foreign relations (especially with Britain, the United States, Japan), nationalism, and reform movements. The second section is devoted to the development of the People's Republic of China and highlights the roles of such major political leaders as Sun Yat-sen, Chiang K'ai'shek, Yuan Shih k'ai, Mao Tse'tung, and Chou En'lai. Listed are the objectives to be developed through methods of lecture, student discussion, projects, and integrated cultural activities. Curriculum materials, including five main textbooks, supplemental books, films, filmstrips, overhead transparencies, and recordings are given.
