Yee (international relations, Hong Kong Baptist U.) suggests that because "university students...are more receptive to new ideas and values...a systematic study of contemporary Chinese students' political culture will cast some light on China's future political development". His study is based upon questionnaires answered by over 4,000 students in China, Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan. Arguing that contemporary Chinese political culture takes its impetus from three sources: Western democracy, Chinese political tradition, and Leninist-Maoism, Yee concludes that China will slowly move toward democratic principles.
This is the third volume of a four-part series which covers the development of the university in Europe (east and west) from its origins to the present day, focusing on a number of major themes viewed from a European perspective. The originality of the series lies in its comparative, interdisciplinary, collaborative and trans-national nature. It deals also with the content of what was taught at the universities, but its main purpose is an appreciation of the role and structures of the universities as seen against a backdrop of changing conditions, ideas and values. This 2004 volume deals with the modernisation, differentiation and expansion of higher education which led to the triumph of modern science, changing the relations between universities and national states, teachers and students, their ambitions and political activities. Special attention is focused on the fundamental advances in 'learning' - the content of what was taught at the universities.
