Description: 
This course provides a broad survey of Chinese history from the Mongol invasion to the collapse of imperial order in 1911. In the first half of the semester, we trace the Tang-Song transition, China 's exchange with central Asia and the threat of steppe normadism, which produced the Mongol and Manchu conquest dynasties. In the second half, we explore the achievements and disasters of the Ming, and we focus on the last imperial dynasty, the Qing. We study the Qing legacy and agent of change, both internal and external, that led to the 1911 republican revolution.
