INTLPOL 249: War and the Making of Modern China (EASTASN 261, EASTASN 361, HISTORY 291C, HISTORY 391C)

Instructor: Jonathan Ming-En Tang Warfare and organized state violence has been a critical part of modern China's construction over the past 150 years. What is the consequence of such violence for our understanding of PRC strategic behavior in the present day? How can these wars be placed in a larger regional context? Over the course of this time period, and across multiple governmental regimes, can a culturally 'Chinese' form of war be identified? Conflicts will be analyzed in chronological fashion, beginning with the Taiping Civil War, The First Sino-Japanese War, the early republican "Warlord Period" in the second and third decades of the twentieth century, China's participation in World War II, the Civil War between the Nationalists and the Communists, the Cold War, and the People's Republic of China's military involvement in East and Southeast Asia. This course covers selected major English-language secondary scholarship on the topic of war in China or conducted by China. No knowledge of Chinese language is required, but some background in Chinese history would be extremely helpful.
