China in Transformation : 1900-1949 Paperback
Part of the Seminar Studies In History series
The first half of the 20th century was a fascinating and tragic period for China.
There were accomplishments, such as the strengthening economy, the improvements in the education system and the status of women, but these were overshadowed by continuing extreme poverty, social misery and a series of crises, many of them bloody.
Worst of all, the period saw the Japanese occupation, among the most horrific in all Chinese history.Professor Mackerras provides and admirably clear and accessible account of the events that defined this very confusing period in China's history. This new edition takes into account the many new articles and books published on this period and new (formerly unavailable) documents.The maps, chronology, glossary, bibliography and guide to further reading will further bring the history alive for readers.
