Christianity and Chinese Stability - ... With such strong assertions, it is clear that as Christianity expands in China, the future stability of the government in Chinese society will increase due to higher respect of the Communist party as China’s divinely appointed rulers.

With loans from the Six Companies, Chinese were able to afford fare to America, and they traveled here to work primarily as gold miners, fishermen, or agricultural workers; later settling into laundry services and restaurant work (Tsai, China overseas 12-13)....   [tags: Immigration] 1810 words
