This chapter explores the ways in which the subject community inherited the nature and role of Chinese History from the first phase and secured them in the school curriculum between 1974 and 1997. This analysis can help to explain how a strong subject culture was established that helped to shield the subject from the broader curriculum reform that took place in the 1990s.

Keywords:   A-level Chinese History subject committee, CEE, Chinese History's chronological approach, cultural history, curriculum reform, decontextualised, depoliticalised, dynastic history, examination syllabus
