The Song Dynasty and the Tang Dynasty both had methods for choosing government officials. However, the Song Dynasty had the most foolproof way of choosing their government officials. This is because of three reasons. The first reason, is the school was funded by the state, which made it more equal and affordable between the aristocrats and the common people to get education to pass the exam. Another reason is that scribes copied the exams to be graded so the people who are grading the tests couldn't favor one person over the other. This could affect how the Tang chose leaders. The Tang favored aristocrats because they were wealthy and owned land. The third reason for the Song having a better system for choose leaders is that the song base
The common reason for Chinese immigration issues in the 1800 's and current Mexican immigration issues are wealth. To be honest, as a Chinese, China is not that developed in the 1800 's, so as today 's Mexican. People always want to get a better life, it 's the reason for immigration. America is the right place for Chinese in 1800 's and current Mexican. "In the 1850 's, Chinese workers migrated to the United States, first to work in the gold mines, but also to take agricultural jobs, and factory work, especially in the garment industry."1 It 's not difficult to see that the job for Chinese is at low level. Chinese in America in the 1800 's were in a very low rank. Chinese workers had to start from the worker like building railroads. That was a tough time for immigrants. Many Chinese died during that time. No Pain No Gain, they chose to have a possible to get a better life.

Different periods throughout China’s history have different names, known as dynasties, for the diverse positions within its society. Theoretically, all of the periods are similar, with the government and military officials ranking high in the hierarchy, and the average everyday people being under regular Chinese law. Throughout China’s history, the society has been organized into a hierarchic system of socio-economic classes, known as the four occupations. The four occupations system seems to have become distorted after the commercialization of Chinese culture during the Song Dynasty. Even though the social rankings within the country are not as predominant as they once were, the people living within the country still know their “place” within the society.
The Mughal and Manchu/Qing empires were formed during the 16th century and became two of the largest, economically successful, and most powerful dynasties in Asia for over two hundred years. “In each empire, hereditary emperors ruled over multi-ethnic and multi-religious states. As the result of conquest, ethnic minorities ruled both the Qing Dynasty in China and Mughal Empire in India”. These empires thrived and expanded over the years due to their effective leadership and implicit understanding of the inherent problems of minority rule. The Mughal Empire in India was created by Muslims from Central Asia who maintained control over a population consisting primarily of Hindus and the Manchu or Qing Dynasty consisted of a small number of Manchurians ruling a vast population of Han Chinese. In both cases, the empires were successful because the leaders understood the importance of acceptance, religious tolerance, and the ability of the native population to participate in the structural organization of the ruling government.

During that time, society’s unsettlement caused some reform movement to initiate. In this essay, the implications of modernization of Taiping Rebellion and 1911 Revolution will be discussed.
