  1. China in transformation, 1900-1949

    Mackerras, Colin
    London ; New York : Longman, 1998.

    A lucid introduction to the history of modern China from the Boxer Rebellion in 1900 through to the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949. Within a chronological framework the author explores the forces of nationalism, modernisation and change in a period of revolution, occupation and civil war. Two thematic chapters look at social change through the period (in particular, the status of women) and education and the student movement. Written by the editor of the best-selling survey, Eastern Asia, this is an ideal text for anyone tackling the complexities of Chinese history for the first time.

  3. China in transformation, 1900-1949

    Mackerras, Colin
    2nd ed. - Harlow, England ; New York : Pearson/Longman, 2008.

    The first half of the 20th century was a fascinating and tragic period for China. There were accomplishments, such as the strengthening economy, the improvements in the education system and the status of women, but these were overshadowed by continuing extreme poverty, social misery and a series of crises, many of them bloody. Worst of all, the period saw the Japanese occupation, among the most horrific in all Chinese history. Professor Mackerras provides and admirably clear and accessible account of the events that defined this very confusing period in China's history. This new edition takes into account the many new articles and books published on this period and new (formerly unavailable) documents. The maps, chronology, glossary, bibliography and guide to further reading will further bring the history alive for readers.
