Modern Chinese History 1840-1949 BHC037


When the Opium War broke out in 1840, China entered its period of modern history. After the war, China signed a series of unequal treaties which almost reduced it to a colonized country under Western imperialist powers. Due to aggression from Western powers and the corruption of the Qing dynasty, the people yearned for a national revolution. Many important figures arose out of this national aspiration. It included Sun Yat-sen, Yuan Shikai, the Kuomintang (KMT) and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) who fought for power. China has gone through many challenging moments and events before arriving at what it is today. Chinese Modern History chronicles the events that occurred from 1840 to 1949, and the many important figures who changed the fate of modern China.
