    For most of its 5,000-year existence, China has been the largest, most populous, wealthiest, and mightiest nation on Earth. And for us as Westerners, it is essential to understand where China has been in order to anticipate its future. These 36 eye-opening lectures deliver a comprehensive political and historical overview of one of the most fascinating and complex countries in world history.

    What did you love best about The Fall and Rise of China?

    Objective perspective of the events and captured the essense of leader's characteristics.


    What does Professor Richard Baum bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The tone used to describe the events and his personal encounters which would not be conveyed through text alone.


    Any additional comments?

    As a Taiwan-borne Chinese, it was interesting to contrast the objective narrative of the last 100 years or so history with what I had learnt in Taiwan during childhood. Great to learn aspect of China that was foreign to me before taking this course. I was pleasantly surprised by the depth of understanding of not just the historical events, but the Chinese psyche during those times. Highly recommend it! (I've already recommended this to friends and family)
