    The decline of China began in the late 18th and early 19th Centuries when the opium trade shifted their trade balance into negative territory Why do I have this ominous feeling that China is currently getting their revenge Indeed, many people predict that the 21st Century will be the Chinese Century Given China s prominence in the world today I figured that this was a good time to listen


  2. says:

    It was not my fault the Gang of Four poisoned my mind as I held up five fingers with the implication being that Mao was at fault too I think I ll blame them too for me not having had known anything about China history since 1750 including how creepy the British were with their Boxer Rebellion and foisting opium on to the Chinese masses in order to enrich the coffers of the British, or for have not

    Rather than a book, this is a series of 48 1 2 hour lectures you have your choice of audio of video formatI m cheap so I went audioafter waiting for a sale a couponcheck out TGC.com It is not cheap, but it was worth it in my case We re planning a China trip, so I was motivated to learn a bit about the recent history of the country and perhaps appreciate the surroundings of the cities and countrysideseasily

    This book has put together many events, which when I learned long time ago in school, I wasn t able to put the causal links and innate connections in acomprehensive way For example, the book presented the real figure of the bi lateral trade between China and Britain in those years before the Opium War and made the cause of the war really clear Somehow I wish that the author could go intodetails withelaborations on

    I freely admit listening to most of these twice or even three times this past month as I lectured on Chinese history Not only is Baum an excellent and engaging lecturer, a true role model, he goes all the way to the 2008 Olympics and beyond, pushing forward the interpretation of contemporary Chinese history as a burgeoning superpower still obsessed with overturning those unequal treaties that put it in such a difficult spot


  6. says:

    Good insights into and overview of China s modern history The professor is self focused as many are in my experience , calling attention to his own excursions and endeavours These digressions may be pertinent, but can also leave the listener with a feeling of the instructor s biases.Produced in 2013, so a little dated in its forward looking optimism, the latest iteration of the CCP has become farhostile to freedom.


  7. says:

    A very good overview of the history of China from Mao to 1990 The lecturer is articulate, well spoken and passionate about the subject Definitely worth the 48 hr time commitment


  8. says:

    The lectures are the best way to understand modern China The professor builds the image of an inward looking China, which lost its way before the second world war only to regain its rightful position in the world order now It s clear to me that the Chinese deserve their place among the top nations of the world I think they should be given this right because they are very different from the militant Japanese cousins Chinese have really taken to Confuc


  9. says:

    The lecture series works on almost all the counts perfectly the topic is extremely important and relatively uncovered The views are largely unbiased even if one disagrees with many of the conclusions The style is completely engaging with the professor mixing the landmark historical events with personal anecdotes or interesting normal life incidents to create a sense of a grand, purposeful story rumbling towards a rousing climax And most importantly, the detai


  10. says:

    A very good series of lectures The complex, multi faceted nature of Mao s personality and leadership I found especially fascinating and well done The presenter often has a surprising up close and personal platform to observe many of China s recent events There are probably few China watchers with such a position The personal impressions and anecdotes were appreciated, as well as the smooth spoken delivery of those often hard to remember Chinese names Somehow he manage
