This is a 15-week two part course on Chinese domestic and international politics offered by Prof. David Zweig of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, which I completed today. Although a bit timed – this coursed was recorded in 2016 – it gives an excellent overview of the entire spectrum of Chinese politics including party, government, military, economy and international relations. The course is in the form of a number of small videos that allows for the student to easily follow the subjects. Prof. Zweig’s narrative was also lucid yet scholarly. The first part in 6 weeks deals with China’s domestic politics, while part 2 deals with the international relations arena. The final week was a panel discussion in which the panelists give a lot of insights into the thinking of the current Chinese leadership under Xi Jinping.
I found the course to be more useful for the beginners.
