This chapter is a summary that summarises the findings of Chapter 2 to 5, and identifies the pattern of change in the development of Chinese History, as well as the various kinds of forces which have been instrumental in determining the nature and scope of the subject. The relative impact of each of these forces is assessed, and the findings are then discussed within the wider theoretical context established in the beginning chapter.
