Four credits

The course will review the period of the late Ming dynasty to the establishment of the People’s Republic of China and how this period continues to influence China’s interaction with the international community. The course will then study the period from China’s entry into the Korean War up to the normalizations of relations with the U.S. and those national security issues that either enhanced or challenged the U.S.-China bilateral relationship, and the central role of the Chinese Communist Party, the People’s Liberation Army, and the Ministry of State Security in the management of those issues. The course will end with a review and discussion of those current issues impacting the bilateral relationship.
