Today we reviewed the questions from the end of the DeMarco chapter on China. We examined the issues associated with the Cultural Revolution and the warming associated with detente. We also discussed the adjustments to communism under Deng. You should know about Mao, Chiang, Chou, and Deng. The workbook has a good list of vocab terms. I tried to take lots of chances to compare the paths taken by the USSR and China.
We also started our discussion of Vietnam. We looked at a map of SE Asia and started a PPT discussion that we will finish tomorrow.
