Abstract

During recent years China has passed through one dramatic crisis after another. Dr. Sun Yat-sen led a successful coup against the ruling Manchu Dynasty in 1911. Between 1911 and 1949 China's troubles included inflation, invasion and occupation by foreign armies, civil war, and social chaos. This period ended on October 1, 1949 with the inauguration of the Chinese People's Republic.
