Das Beste Fabulous, wonderful learning experience. Never thought.... I'd be sorry to finish. I want to review at a slower pace the entire course. So I'm hoping the next section starts as late as possible. I started late, and played catch up as fast as I could worrying it would be taken down before I finished. Now I want to review. A not to be missed authentically engaging PROFESSOR (and well dressed as well)

Zu verbessern Nothing.

China (Part 5): From a Global Empire under the Mongols to a Global Economy under the Ming Dynasty is the fifth of ten parts of ChinaX, that collectively span over 6,000 years of history. Each part consists of 4 to 8 weekly "modules," each with videos, readings, interactive engagements, assessments, and discussion forums. There are a total of 52 modules in ChinaX.

Parts 1 - 5 make up China: Civilization and Empire, taught by Professor Peter K. Bol. Parts 6 - 10 make up China and the Modern World, taught by Professor William C. Kirby.

  • How in the 13th century the Mongols created the greatest empire in human history by force of arms. Yet by the end of the Ming dynasty in the late 16th century a new global economy was emerging through trade.
  • How new world silver brought together the Americas, Europe, and East Asia, and how the intellectuals of East and West spoke to each other directly.
  • To analyze land-based versus sea-based empire building.
  • To develop your own approaches to history and gain a critical appreciation of China’s literary, philosophical, political and cultural resources.
  • To express ideas more clearly and confidently; to think more analytically and critically through the study of primary and secondary sources.
