Between 1842 and the present China has undergone profound political, social, and cultural changes. Some see this as a process of “Westernization,” in the sense that many of these changes were promoted by Chinese historical actors who wanted to remake China according to Western models that they had come to see as normative or ideal. Others argue that China has undergone a process of “modernization,” but that it would be wrong to characterize this as a process of “Westernization” because Chinese historical actors were able to adopt changes selectively, and because the goal of these changes was not to become like “the West” but to strengthen China. Explain which perspective you find more convincing, or propose an alternative way of looking at the issue.
