The Great Eastern Revival - A Resurgent China in the 21st Century

Since the recent election of Xi Jinping as president of China, the Chinese government has become much more aggressive in both its domestic and foreign policies. This represents a significant departure from the moderate policies of previous Chinese leadership. What is the implication of these new approaches for China's global relationships and her internal political, economic, and social development? Is this new posture a completely new orientation or are its roots found in the Chinese past? Do recent Chinese actions in East Asia and beyond threaten American regional and global interests? Will the 21st century become a Chinese dominated century? It is the intent of the course to explore these issues as well as others in an attempt to understand the complexities of China in the 21st century.

Suggested Reading: All course readings will be either provided by the instructor or found in recent and current journals.

Instructor: Dr. David McQuilkin, professor emeritus of history and political science at Bridgewater College, has taught history, government, and politics for almost 40 years.
