What does China’s “One Country, Two Systems” policy mean? And how well did it work? If you’ve watched news coverage of public protests in Hong Kong, you’ll know “One Country, Two Systems” refers to how mainland China promised to govern Hong Kong after Great Britain gave up control there in 1997. It means communist oversight of a capitalist economy and culture. It also refers to China’s relationship with Taiwan..
In this lecture from 2010, “China’s Lost Territories: Taiwan, Hong Kong,” by Richard Baum for The Great Courses Plus, examine the reunification of Hong Kong with China in 1997 and the system that granted domestic autonomy to Hong Kong under Chinese sovereignty. Then track Taiwan's transition to democracy, the turbulent movements for and against independence from China, and Beijing's ongoing strategic efforts to reclaim the island.

For 150 years since Britain ruled Hong Kong, no one in Hong Kong has the right to vote. The West's position on this point is hypocritical.

Watching this in light of current events is chilling. We're going to need a followup course on modern China/international relations.

The information about Taiwan-China relationship offered here is way outdated.
The situation has changed a lot for the last 6 years.

Good but OUTDATED short history. This is probably recorded in 2010; therefore, Important political events since 2010 are not covered. Many important events happened since 2010.

These politicians make decisions without ever trying to understand the truth about it's opponents until Trump shows up.

I won't be surprised this Prof has been instrumental in influencing the political outcome of Hong Kong and Taiwan.
For many students at young age of around 20yo, when you paint a stream and craftily say it's a river, many of them will start to believe it's a river each time they see a stream.
Education is generally good but it can also destroy lives if the intention of the educator is evil. This is what we have been witnessing in Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Dr. Baum...you are really amazing. I hated lectures in college and graduate school...because you were not my prof. You move things along at the right pace and provide lots of interesting ideas and facts. Thank you! I am now one of your groupies. :)

How things have now changed. I remarked the differenceses from when I was in HK in the years after reunification and when I last visited around New Year 2019. Things have accelerated since even that time.

Don't forget to explain in detail how the British forced HK to be given to them for 150 yrs using the opium war.

This was posted in May, but it would be a REAL GOOD IDEA to say when it was recorded.

"In general, then, the principle of 'one country, two systems' has worked out rather well in Hong Kong''s Special Administrative Region." That was still okay on May 29, 2020.

But by the first of July, the editorial in the Financial Times was: "The end of one country, two systems in Hong Kong".
