Chinese culture had a great impact on these countries, they eventual became unique to each country but its roots can be traced back to China. China’s history has been compared to the Roman Empire. It was a small nation that grew with each new Dynasty. Soon China became more economically and technologically advanced than any other nation.
The Xiongnu, the wandering herdsmen from the plains, were coming from China’s northern border killing villagers and raiding the area for want they wanted and needed. “The First Great Emperor of China” or Qin Shihuangdi did not appreciate the visits from these invaders, and soon ordered his advisors to construct a wall. The wall had to be the length of their kingdom from east to west, he wanted it built fast and he did not care of how many people would die building it. As more and more invasions from the Xiongnus, Emperor Qin Shihuangdi’s advisors began the work of their lifetime. The construction of the Great Wall lasted a total of 276 years from 476 BC- 221 BC.
Self-rule can cause huge changes both negative and positive. Several individuals have played a big role in the changes in Chinese. These changes have paved the path to the powerful China we see today that used to be weak before these leaders came to power. But the leader that has left the greatest impact on China is Deng Xiaoping. He was one the greatest reformers of China and the person we know for todays Chinese power.He truly showed the world the power of China.
The culture that once held this great empire together ultimately resulted in its demise. Dynasties within the Zhou Dynasty formed, appointing new kings as each dynasty’s ruler. A shift in power directly affected the culture of the Chinese because now they had to adhere to the customs and courtesies of individual rulers, not under one dynasty as it was before. China’s first and most influential tyrannical emperor, Qin Shi Huang, persevered through all the turmoil created by the smaller states. Qin Shi Huang had the strongest army and managed to conquer all of the separated states.
By conquering these states, Shih Huangdi established the Qin Dynasty, thus creating the first unification of China, and the first Chinese central government. In his efforts to make this new concept of centralized rule “stick”, as well as prevent the reemergence of feudal lords, Shih Huangdi ordered the destruction of the wall sections that divided his empire along the forme... ... middle of paper ... ...iquity today, having been protected from most “barbarian” outside influences over the centuries. China still uses the Wall today, as well. The vast structure serves as a popular tourist attraction, thus, stimulating Chinese economy. Throughout its lifetime, the masterpiece repelled invaders such as the Mongols from the empire that would soon be most of China.
China has had a long dynastic ruling – monarchical history with many different dynasties ruling the land one over the other. Among these victorious dynasties, the Ming-Qing dynasties were those of the most well-known dynasties of all. The fall of the Ming dynasty conquered by the Qing house thus left a great impact on society and cultural lifestyle to the old Ming elites which reflected in cultural products such as poems, novels, and essays from the Qing period. In addition, this period also involved new capital and foreign engagement, Chinese’s border was expanded into Manchuria and Vietnam. Technology and science were not that flourish during Ming dynasty as compared to Song dynasty.
China has changed to communism off and on thorguhout the years but always has had some typeof a dictator. These leaders have greatly contributed to China, as they have used trade/exports, low wages and foreign investment to get China to become the 2nd biggest econmony it is today. Thanks to certain leaders of China, the Chinese economy has had periods of success and stability; however that has fluctuated thanks to the actions of other Chinese leaders. Mao Zedong was the laeder of China before Deg Xiapong. Mao started a revolution in order to overthrow the currwent goveremtn and “fix” Chiana.
On top of that China was in a lot of dept due to the war. Although, the country was independent they still struggled with a lot, like the fact that the new government was still run by the communist party that included fourteen separate parties. As time went on the people of China became very oppressive and Mao decided to change that. To do so Mao started enforcing laws that would change the people’s views about him and the government.in 1950, Mao enforced the “Agrarian reform law”, which stated that the upper class would provide any help needed for the lower class which was ninety percent of the population.
The Ming Dynasty had created an empire. They had the government, the military, and the economic system to prove it. At different points in time, The Chinese Empire was the greatest in the world, for trade, military, and other key factors in a society. The main reason for the creation of the Ming Dynasty was the collapse of the Yuan dynasty. The word Ming means “brilliant” and “bright.” The creator and first emperor of the Ming Dynasty was Chu Yuan-chang, who later changed his name to suit him and his new government.
The reason this is happening is because people see China as a vastly growing country, corporations and companies want to move there because of the great opportunities they see to grow. Globalization has also impacted Chinese culture in a negative way. Because it is so powerful, the country has a sense of cultural superiority that was once not there. The cultural change started in the 1980’s when a series of reforms was launched. After these reforms were launched tensions emerged in the Chinese culture.
