China’s culture was profoundly impacted by these changes, as they came with astronomical costs, while forging strong leaders and producing one of the world’s most powerful modern nations.
Follow the history of the last Imperial debt of the Qing dynasty, as the Hukuang Rail Road bonds are issued in 1911 – directly leading to dynastic change, revolution, further imperialism, democracy, civil war, industrialization, invasion, reform and communism.
