China in War and Revolution, 1895-1949 by Peter G. Zarrow

Book Description

Providing historical insights essential to the understanding of contemporary China, this text presents a nation's story of trauma and growth during the early twentieth century. It explains how China's defeat by Japan in 1895 prompted an explosion of radical reform proposals and the beginning of elite Chinese disillusionment with the Qing government. The book explores how this event also prompted five decades of efforts to strengthen the state and the nation, democratize the political system, and build a fairer and more unified society. Peter Zarrow weaves narrative together with thematic chapters that pause to address in-depth themes central to China's transformation. While the book proceeds chronologically, the chapters in each part examine particular aspects of these decades in a more focused way, borrowing from methodologies of the social sciences, cultural studies, and empirical historicism. Essential reading for both students and instructors alike, it draws a picture of the personalities, ideas and processes by which a modern state was created out of the violence and trauma of these decades.

Rethinking the 1898 Reform Period by Peter G. Zarrow Rethinking the 1898 Reform Period, Hardback (June 2002)

The essays in this volume reexamine the "hundred days" in 1898 and focus particularly on the aftermath of this reform movement. Among the subjects covered are the reform movement, the reformers, newspapers, education, urban environment, female literacy, the "new" woman, citizenship, and literature.

Idea of the Citizen by Peter G. Zarrow Idea of the Citizen, Hardback (July 1997)

While much attention has been focused on the rise of the modern Chinese nation, little or none has been directed at the emergence of "citizenry". This book examines thinkers from the period 1890-1920 in modern China, and shows how China might forge a modern society with a political citizenry.
