China Since 1949 by Linda Benson

Exploring the remarkable story of China's rise to global prominence, China since 1949 provides a concise yet comprehensive overview of the events that have shaped the country since the middle of the twentieth century.

Covering the Maoist era through the Reform period to the present day, this book addresses subjects such as China's position as a world economic power, the Chinese Communist Party's treatment of ethnic minorities, women's experiences under the Communist regime, and China's human rights record. Fully updated throughout, the third edition includes:

  • a new chapter focusing on China since 2010
  • discussion of current issues such as China's territorial disputes, computer hacking and cyber-espionage, corruption, leadership changes, and the slowing of China's economic growth
  • extensively revised chapters on China and the World and on Government, Politics and the Economy
  • An updated selection of primary source documents.

Also containing a chronology of events from 1949 to 2015, a Who's Who of key figures, a glossary and a guide to further reading, China Since 1949 is an accessible and engaging introduction to China's recent past and essential reading for students of modern Chinese history.
