History 101: The Rise of China

Bruce Kennedy

Overview

For much of the 20th century, the world's largest country had lagged behind while the West pulled ahead. But now, the tables are turning.

History 101 is a Netflix series that explores and explains the many fascinating aspects of our world, written by Emmy Award-winning storyteller Bruce Kennedy. In this episode, we follow China's ascent from a struggling agrarian society to their current economic powerhouse status.

The Rise of China examines the evolution of China's political philosophy from Mao Zedong's revolutionary communism to Deng Xiaoping's reforms and the unprecedented economic growth that followed. Through its global influence and massive infrastructure projects abroad, the Chinese government is shaping both its people's future and that of the entire planet.
