PSCI 4673 - East Asian Politics and History


3 credits

[Meets the Core Curriculum Writing Practice Requirement] We are now in the 21st century, which has already been nicknamed by many as the Pacific Century. While it remains to be seen whether or not the 21st century will be the Pacific Century, the Pacific Rim is one of the most influential regions of the world. It is thus important to study the important players in this vital region. In this course we examine the five most significant states of Asia (five states but four nations). They are Japan, China, India, and North and South Korea (for the purposes of this class Taiwan will be considered part of China). We will begin with a survey of the region focusing on the foreign and security issues that are in common to the region. We will then proceed to focus on the individual countries (states) and the issues that make them what they are today and the direction that they are headed in the future. (Same as HIST 4673)
