Course Description: This course offers a general introduction in the recent history of eastern Asia from ca. 1850. The course traces the political, economic, and cultural dynamics of eastern Asia since the reforms in nineteenth-century Japan up to the emergence of the Chinese Giant in recent years. Attention is given to issues such as colonialism, war and decolonization, the Cold War, and the turbulent modernization processes in Asian societies. Above all the course looks into the conditions for and effects of the dramatic economic growth after World War II. Central to the analysis is the role of state institutions for the development of Asian economies, but also the role of the Cold War, the United States and the reforms in China after 1978, the effects of neo liberalism, and the fascinating blossoming of Asian cultures. The course offers the fundamental knowledge that enables students to understand the present-day world and the position of Asia in it.
