This is the Year of the Wood Horse

And just in time to celebrate… here is a free lecture from The Teaching Company.

You know how much I love history… and The Teaching Company. This one’s part of the course, Foundations of Eastern Civilization, by Dr. Craig G. Benjamin, Associate Professor of History in the Frederik Meijer Honors College at Grand Valley State University in Michigan. In this lecture, you will:

  • look at the political rebellions that led to today’s republic,
  • meet Mao Zedong, Sun Yatsen, and Chiang Kai-shek,
  • and witness conflict between Nationalist and Communist parties.
