Four decades of dramatic historical change in China through the prism of textbooks

Zarrow and JudgeHistorian Peter Zarrow examined four decades of dramatic historical change in China through the prism of textbooks in a talk at York University earlier this month.

Professor Zarrow, from the University of Connecticut, is also adjunct research fellow at the Institute of Modern History, Academia Sinica, where he worked for many years.

His research deals with the intellectual history of modern China, focusing on political thought and movements in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

He also presented a paper on Utopian Impulse in Chinese Political Thought, 1890-1940 at the Critical China Studies Group seminar during his visit.
