The class examines China’s entanglement with the Cold War from 1945 to the early 1990s. The course raises China-centered questions because it is curious in retrospect that China, a quintessential Eastern state, became so deeply involved in the Cold War, which was a confrontation rooted in Western history.  In exploring such questions, this course does not merely treat China as part of the Cold War but also treat the Cold War as a period of the Chinese history.
