China: A Century of Revolution

CHINA: A CENTURY OF REVOLUTION is a six-hour tour de force journey through the country’s most tumultuous period. First televised on PBS, this award-winning documentary series presents an astonishingly candid view of a once-secret nation with rare archival footage, insightful historical commentary and stunning eyewitness accounts from citizens who struggled through China’s most decisive century. CHINA IN REVOLUTION charts the country’s most violent era where decades of civil war and foreign invasions led to the bloody battle for power between Mao Zedong and Chiang Kai-shek. THE MAO YEARS examines the turbulent era of Mao’s attempts to forge a “new China” from the war-ravaged and poverty-stricken nation. Mao’s death begins BORN UNDER THE RED FLAG, which follows the country’s new leadership of Deng Xiaoping and its unlikely transformation into an extraordinary hybrid of communist-centralized politics with an ever-expanding free market economy. Monumental in scope, CHINA: A CENTURY OF REVOLUTION is critical viewing for anyone interested in this increasingly powerful and globally influential country.

  1. Deng’s reform was about socialist market economy!! It was never about the free market lol….Deng was not stupid, he realized that in order to save the regime, he had to introduce some form of market economics lol….But it is no way free market capitalism and it is not soo today!!! It is more of a mixed economy that is between freedom and controls in an economic context!!! It is not the free market nor even a centrally planned economy that brings corruption!! It is the mixed economy that is between freedom and controls lol……China’s economy is mixed and most economies are mixed today to various degree even the western ones!!!

  2. The video doesn’t seem to be working anymore..?

  3. I don’t think it really has anything to do with the memory sticks or the reader itself because when the USB is plugged in the sticks, reader and unit seems to work just as it should but when it is unplugged the issue is again apparent.
