Content is digested without becoming superficial and the course is continually presented in an engaging manner. I had no real exposure to China before the course, despite business trips to both Beijing and Shanghai (both of which were spent inside conference rooms!). The course's design, content and importantly the instructor's presentations do not presume any prior exposure to China or its history. This allowed an only moderately interested participant like me to feel OK and welcomed. And, I should add, eventually captivated by the course and by the reality and complexity of China as a nation, polity and people. I am now reading my fifth book on China. This would never had happened had I not taken this fabulous course!!

Learned more than I expected. I recommend you take the first China course in this series (SW12x) before this one because the first course provides a broad look at the starting point of Chinese history that provides a base for this second course. The historical period covered by this part (300 BCE to 450 AD) builds directly off the base outlined in the first part.
