Title of the question

A classic mistake is to deal with China, on the one hand, and the world since 1949 on the other, in two parts.

It was absolutely necessary to study the relations between China and the world all along since 1949.

Boundaries of the question

Historical milestones: In 1949, the Communist Party led by Mao established the People’s Republic of China. The proclamation of the PRC was your starting point. You could place your final milestone at today, but we would have simply taken 2013: Xi Jinping president of China.

Spatial boundary markers: that is easier, since it is the terms of the topic: China and the world. So your terminals were the relationship between the Chinese territory and the world. You could go into the nuance to bring in the different territorial changes of China since 1949. But this could also be done in the development.
