5. How did the war influence China’s economy?
About this Lecture
In this module, we think about the impact of the Second Sino-Japanese War on China’s economy, focusing in particular on: (i) the birth of state enterprises; and (ii) the devastation of the Chinese economy following the Japanese invasion in 1937, and again following Japanese advances between 1940-42.
In this course, Dr Tehyun Ma (University of Sheffield) explores the causes, course and consequences of the Second Sino-Japanese War (1937-45). In the first module, we think about why the Japanese occupied Manchuria in 1931. After that, in the second module, we consider why the Japanese launched a full invasion in China in 1937, before turning in the third module to think about why the Japanese lost the war. In the fourth, fifth, and sixth modules, we think about the impact of the Second Sino-Japanese War on Chinese society, the Chinese economy, and Chinese politics, respectively.
Dr Tehyun Ma is Lecturer in International History at the University of Sheffield. Her main research interest is in the history of state- and nation-building in twentieth-century China and Taiwan, particularly under the Chinese Nationalist (Guomindang) government.
