THE PEOPLE'S DYNASTY Culture and Society in Modern China

by | Read by Robert J. Shepherd

Contemporary Culture • 7.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Since 1979, China has undergone a remarkable series of fundamental changes while at the same time remaining a one-party state. After a look at China’s history, Professor Shepherd covers contemporary topics such as jobs, family, religion, the environment, and intellectual property. China has tried mightily to avoid the chaos that attended the collapse of the Soviet Union. In addition to the lectures, a helpful printed course guide offers lists of recommended readings and summary observations. The widely traveled Shepherd speaks with a friendly American voice that makes one imagine talking with him in his office. It’s a one-man show—and a good one.
