In the first half of the twentieth century, China moved from a millennium of imperial rule to the Communist Party-led Peoples Republic of China which remains today.  China in Transformation argues that this enormously significant period in Chinese history saw wrenching change throughout Chinese society amounting to a social, cultural and political transformation. This new, fully revised and updated edition takes full advantage of new research and formerly unavailable material to analyse the fascinating processes of revolution, reform, reaction and change in China during the period. Mackerras:

 

        Discusses the wars, occupations and uprisings that marked the period, including the Boxer Rebellion and the Japanese occupation and includes a new chapter on postwar China and the Civil War

 

        Examines nation-building and revolutions, including the successful communist movement that has led to the rise of todays state

 

        Acknowledges the prevalence of poverty and famine in the period but also gives space to the areas in which there was progress:  the introduction of mass, secular education, improvements in the status of women, and in a new chapter, details significant developments in culture, literature and theatre

 

Written in an accessible style, with a rich collection of Documents, Chronology, Glossary, a Guide to Further Reading,and a Whos Who summarising the careers and contributions of the main figures, this new edition is essential for all those interested in understanding Chinas modern history.
