History of China
China is one of the world's oldest civilizations. After thousands of years of imperial rule, the republic was declared in 1912. During World War II, a war of resistance was fought against Japan that occupied much of China. The civil war that emerged afterwards resulted in the victory of the communists. Governments from the 1990's transformed the Chinese economy into a fast growing market economy while still retaining the one-party political system.
