He also adopted the legali... ... middle of paper ... ...provinces, and the appointment of governors to collect taxes from them were just some of the things they got from China. China was the most populous country of this time and influenced greatly all of its surrounding countries. Many different dynasties ruled China throughout history, and each one had its own impact on China. Each ruler had his or her own beliefs and ways of ruling that would be pressed upon the people. Even the countries around China were affected when Chinese armies would conquer them and set up their armies in their country.
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. No doubt the other leaders of China have caused great change, but Deng Xiaoping has caused the greatest change in a positive direction. Deng Xiaoping kept communism in China but he also had capitalist ideas in his economic plans. China before his rule was not doing that well even if China's economy was slightly increasing, agriculture really down in China which caused many people to starve to death. The death toll before he came into power was about 40 million people.
Within the years of 221-206 BCE, the Qin Dynasty rose as a superpower. During this time period, the Warring States Era, Chinese civilization was impacted tremendously in almost every aspect. These landmarks in Chinese history vary from the spreading of Legalism to the birth of the Great Wall of China. Through these countless contributions, the Qin Dynasty was able to revolutionize the Chinese civilization in such a short period of time. After unifying the Chinese empire, Qin Shi Huangdi (leader of Qin Dynasty) made several reforms that enhanced Chinese society.
They formed a new dynasty, the Qing (ching), which means “pure.” The Manchus came from Manchuria, a region just north of Korea. Although the Chinese saw them as foreign barbarians, the Manchus had long been influenced by Chinese culture and had adopted many Chinese customs. At first they met strong resistance to their rule. Over the next few decades, however, they brought all of China under their
During the “Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution” of China, countless Chinese bourgeoisie were persecuted with almost no logical reason. His powerful and stern leadership turned into an iron fist. Mao in the long run did improve China, but many of his actions were unnecessary and actually hindered the progress of his
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.
If it had not been for Ming China and the centuries of xenophobia among their people and empire, our whole word today could have been dominantly Chinese ruled. Ming China in premodern times was not as populated and geographically large as it is today, but it was still quite large in both aspects, especially comparing to other empires around such era. About hlaf of chinas population worked for the government in some form. These people known as bureocracts were highly educated and knew how to read and write. Education aided the country to be smart in trade, foreing aspects, and army tactics.
The Opium War not only embarrassed China, but as a consequence, it also had a lot of dramatic social and economic effects as well. China’s view of the Western world along with the relationship changed drastically. Due to the war, there were a lot of internal battles and struggles as well as economic downfall especially in Canton where a lot of trading was focused on prior to the war. This left a lot of people in China without jobs, which resulted in China completely losing all power and control that it had to the Western nations. This allowed these nations to gain power over them, which was not foreseen prior to the war.
There are two things that tie all the changes in the region together, the desire for emerging dynasties to legitimize and consolidate there power and China primarily in the form of the Confucian Examination System. The emergence of so many new dynasties in this period inherently leads to new political systems to govern new dynasties. The CES began in China also, in countries that adopt it, directly starts the emergence of a the Confucian scholar as a political official and creates a whole culture around the examinations themselves. The last unifying trait between all of the changes is that they all remain individual to their respective nations borrowing heavily at times from China but imprinting their own cultural identity on them at the same time.
I have discussed Confucian teachings and texts have influenced Chinese and Eastern Asian culture and government for centuries. How China overcame invaders from all sides and managed to emerge as a world economic power. And finally how Japan developed its own culture and founded a new social class the Samurai. East Asian History is compelling, deep and complicated. A history that will sound differently each time as their history continues to grow and influence other non Asian cultures.
