HIST 4573 - Imperialism in Asia


3 (3-0)

Prerequisite(s): 6 hour of history or consent of the chair.

Empire building was not exclusive to the West, and Asian peoples engaged in imperialism before and after Western intervention. This course examines the development, growth, and demise of Asian empires and their evolution into modern states with China, Japan, Thailand, and Vietnam as case studies. We will look at empire building before the arrival of Westerners, the Western Age of Imperialism, and neo-imperialism, in which wealthy, powerful states influenced less-developed ones through legal agreements, economic leverage, cultural dominance, and military means. In the 21st century, states, like the four covered in this course, still seek to expand territorially, politically, economically, and influentially.
