Product Overview

This Historical Dictionary of Modern China (1800-1949) offers a concise yet comprehensive examination of the political, military, economic, social, and cultural development of China during the 19th and first half of the 20th centuries. It covers a variety of significant people, including women and ethnic minorities; historical concepts; cultural and educational institutions; and economic activities.
Newly available records, including a large number of government and family archives, offer an interpretation of China's modernization process during the late Qing period and a revisionist perspective of Republican history. The chronology records not only political and military events but also personal experiences of the Chinese people. The bibliography stresses current literature about China's drive toward modernization, and appendixes provide detailed information on the country's cultural and economic transformation.
