What problems did you encounter when trying to apply the Fever Model to the Chinese Revolution? Explain.
The main, almost overwhelming problem that I faced when trying to apply the Fever Model to the Chinese Revolutions was that the events of the revolutions didn’t coincide perfectly with the stages of the Fever Model. Over the course of the 20th century, China had many crises that didn’t necessarily all come after a single period of symptoms. When trying to order and classify each event as one of the four stages of the Fever Model, I had to account for whether the event led to anything or whether it created a dud. Furthermore, some events were so broad that they could have fit into multiple areas of the Fever Model, such as the Great Leap Forward: it could be a crisis and a convalescent event. With the multiple revolutions that occurred during the 20thcentury in China, confusion about the order of stages and events was prevalent when trying to fill out this Fever Model.
