CHINA AND ITS NEIGHBORS
Lessons set China’s surging economy in the context of a nation still very poor and trying to decide how to move beyond its Maoist past. Lesson one, "Freeing the Economy," introduces students to the sweeping reforms that have been introduced since Mao’s death in the 1970s. Lesson two, "Party and Society," explores the massive contradiction between the country’s dynamic economic system, and its authoritarian practices. The final lesson, "China and Its Neighbors," discusses how the nation’s endeavors affect the rest of the world.
