Historical Context of China

A pioneer in technology and technical development in both the arts and sciences, China and its artisans have pioneered many incredible innovations. For instance, true porcelain, with kaolin as the key ingredient, was developed in China in the early 1300s. It would not be created in Europe with the same technical quality and physical properties until 1722, when the Meissen factory in Germany also unboltned the secrets of the recipe. In the modern period, China has remained largely behind its own closed doors. An Imperial power with centuries old traditions until the beginning of the twentieth century, China was subsequently wracked by civil war as Chiang Kai Shek battled the forces of Mao Zedong for the control of this immense country, its people and resources.
