The history of China is undoubtedly a long one. China, one of the oldest civilizations on earth with the exception of possibly India, goes back in history about 5,000 years. While it has a geographical size similar to the United States, it has five times the population, 1.5 billion people and the second largest economy in the world, second only to the United States. The very diverse population consists primarily of Han Chinese, 56% other minorities, and a predominately Muslim population in the southwest.
Joining host, Dennis McCuistion, to discuss the history of China, are special guests:
When discussing the history of China, it’s clear to see that the Chinese take pride in their history, art, philosophy food and politics. The country has consisted of a series of dynasties which have written their own history, and that history is written by the victors. It has certainly had its share of ups and downs, has been the place of great innovation, has conquered other peoples and been conquered.
On this program regarding the history of China we examine the impact China’s past has on its present and take a retrospective look at China’s rich history and culture, its dynasties, Confucian philosophy and its geopolitical importance.
Join us, as we talk about things that matter… with people who care. And please don’t forget that for the last 25 years it is you, our viewer who keeps us on the air.
