Course Description: After WWII, the European colonial empires fell apart. Asian countries became independent and many significantly developed their economies. Today, more than half of the world’s economy in is the Pacific Basin. In this online course, we will focus on ten Asian countries with the largest economies and populations, in order to familiarize you with the development of their politics, economics and society. In each case, we will briefly cover pre-20th century matters, and then look at politics, policies and economics up to the present. Two common themes are that these countries had long, serious debates about modernization and that they pushed through and experienced enormous changes.
