Abstract:

Men encounter grand social system. Men work to change the world and construct the history.

‘1840’ was a significant year in East-West history when British gunboats defeated the Qing's traditional navy-shuishi in the Pearl River. Behind the historical event of ‘1840’ is the change of strength, power and wealth of the East and the West. The meeting of the Sino-centric tributary world-system and the capitalist word-system, and the disintegration of the Sino-centric world order and the incorporation of China and her tributaries into the capitalist world-system contribute to the revelation of the event of ‘1840’. As Chairman Mao declared the foundation of People’s Republic of China in Beijing in 1949, it changed the historical meaning of ‘1840’.

The historical East-West encounter of one-and-half century long succeeding the Opium War preceded with the appearance of an independent China in East Asia geo-economically, geo-politically, strategically, and probably geo-culturally. Why?

I will examine the methodological and epistemological validity of major approaches, including modernization perspectives, Sino-Marxist perspectives, and the world-system perspective, to the historical-social phenomenon of the appearance of an independent China.
