As China is re-emerging to world-power status in the 21st century after over a century of foreign aggressions and internal struggles, the study of its modern history is becoming more and more important and necessary in helping us to better understand China’s paths to modernization. Such an understanding in turn would help to shed light on where China is heading in the future. This book attempts to provide such perspectives by exploring different aspects of modern China’s developmental experience. Collectively, these perspectives will enable the readers of this book to gain a more comprehensive and in-depth understanding of China today.

This book is divided into the following four themes: (1) diplomacy and territorial integrity; (2) politics and leadership; (3) education and modernization; and (4) ethnicity and national integration. Each of these themes deals with an important aspect regarding China’s management of its modernization.
