Since 1949 when the People's Republic was established a succession of Chinese leaders has perceived a gap between the economic and technological capacity of the country and that of major global north nations. This course examines the approaches which have been adopted by the Chinese government to stimulate economic and technological development. In particular, it focuses on contemporary policies and on the patterns of continuity and change. It examines both domestic and international issues affecting China and analyses China's role and influence in world politics into the twenty-first century, a century which has been dubbed `the Asian Century'.
