China Today in Her Late-imperial Perspective

Students of modern China’s transformation during the twentieth century are often struck by parallels between China at the end of the 19th century and China at the end of the 20th century.

Please come for a discourse on this phenomenon by Professor Kwang-ching Liu, a noted authority in the late-imperial and modern history of China.
