China's 1911 Revolution : A Centenary Retrospective

2011 marks the 100-year anniversary of the Chinese revolution in 1911. The revolution overthrew China’s last imperial Qing dynasty and ended over 2000 years of imperial governance in China. It established the Republic of China and marked the beginning of China’s Republican era. This exhibit aims to showcase the library holdings on the 1911 China Revolution and outreach to students who are interested in Chinese history.
