INTRODUCTION TO ASIA: CHINA AND INDIA
Not currently offered
Credit points: 15
In this subject students are introduced to India and China. To ensure a systematic approach, we focus on how countries are run (government); how people connect with each other (society); and how people perceive themselves and how outsiders perceive them (culture). The subject is both contemporary and historical. We examine pre-European history, the arrival and ejection of European imperialists and the condition of these countries today. With AST1IJI, the subject prepares students for more detailed study of Asia and for further study in Politics, History, Sociology and Anthropology. It provides sound background for the study of Asian languages.
