However, the Ottomans were partially sustained by the growing rivalries of Europe and often let the British aid in their desperate fight to maintain their empire, albeit reluctantly. The Manchu were very honorable and considered non-Chinese to be barbarians. Unfortunately, this thinking prevented the Chinese from learning from western technology and science. As a result the West was able to easily defeat the Qing in key battles such as the Opium War in 1839 to 1841. In contrast to the Ottomans, the Qing was unable to compromise with the West and Europe forced its way into China.
The Shang majorly improved the Art and Literature of China. The Zhou dynasty is a lot different. They were not a united nation, they had states and gave them lots of power. Like the Shang dynasty, they invented lots of things, but they were completely different. The Zhou invented the crossbow which was a weapon.
Besides being separated by an ocean, the Romans and Aztecs were very much alike. Both were ruled by emperors worshipped as a god, both had highly trained and skilled armies that contributed to their land control, and both believed in polytheistic religions. On the other hand, there are significant differences between the two empires, like the type of government system, economy, and social structure each civilization
Perhaps the two most important civilizations, Rome and Han China both fell due to major similarities. At the same time, Rome and Han China fell due to distinct differences as well. Furthermore, the collapse of China and Rome had far more similarities rather than differences. During 200 and 600 BCE both classical civilizations suffered from outside invasions; growing from Central Asia. They were not as sweeping as earlier Indo-European growth but tested Rome and China severely.
Though many Western civilizations have influenced the way we live our lives today, many forget the progressive movements of early Classical and Contemporary Oriental cultures. Two of these cultures that are still revisited by historians today were the epitome of early Asian civilization and very influential guides for cultures to come. Han China (206 B.C.E.-220 A.D.) and Gupta India (320 C.E.-525 C.E.) were two dynasty-based civilizations in the early conception of Southeastern Asian rule. Though both had a very similar class based society and both had to endure outside invasions as well as internal conflicts, they both had unique, and future utilized, ways of maintaining their rule.
One main similarity is the Roman empire, in the Mediterranean region, and the Hang dynasty, in East Asia, had an overextended population due to nomadic people which diminished the amount of available resources as well as the authority of the central government. One main difference involves the Roman empire where the nomadic people were able to create their own kingdoms first controlling the empire and then being diminished, whereas in the Hang dynasty the nomadic people assimilated to the Chinese culture at the start without altering the political systems.
ACCEPTANCE OF ALL Throughout history, many empires have gained power and then progressively lost power to only be seceded by another empire. It is a mystery what exactly makes an empire so successful, and there is also another difficulty to keep the citizens in line. The Qing and Mughal Empires were the last ruling dynasties of China and India, respectively. A few evident aspects that worked well with these dynasties were the usage of assimilation and religious tolerance. The two empires made sure to keep the old traditions of the previous empire while at the same time incorporating new ones.
Ming China and Mughal India were two great empires in the period of the 1600s.Both had cultural and technological advancements.And both were very different,yet both declined due to their political vulnerability which left them completely open to invasions by other countries.Their Government and society was very different.In both empires women were treated inferior.Both empires were advanced ,and both invented things that contributed to the way society works today. The great empire of the Ming Dynasty in China can be observed when it rose during the 17th century.The Chinese were an advanced society and under the Ming rule became economically,politically and culturally strong.The Ming emperors had absolute power,and ruled through decrees given
Throughout most of China 's history, the country has remained rather isolated from from other nations and their influences. Although there are major instances in which outsiders were able to make significant impressions, such as the introduction of Buddhism, or the devastating opium wars. However, on a whole they were able to remain genuinely separated especially when compared to the development of other countries. In ancient China, this proved to be beneficial to their cultural development which is why they were able to become such an advanced and lasting ancient civilization. Without outside influences their culture was able to solidify, grow, and provide important advancements in ancient times, such as the first paper.
Li Bo and Du Fu are probably two of the most influential Chinese poets who ever lived. Their styles were opposites of each other, one resembling a freeing, calming atmosphere where the other expresses alarmingly sensitive ideas, overflowing with misery. However, these two writers were success during their lifetime unlike some of their predecessors. Both of these poets lived simultaneously during a period where China was unstable. Even though Li Bo and Du Fu lived during the same time, they represented two different spectrums and styles of literature During the time that Li Bo and Du Fu lived, the Tang Dynasty was beginning to decline.
By the end of the Second World War, Earth was left with only two powerful nations that were mostly unharmed by the nearly-global conflict and were in the position to influence the other countries of the world: the United States of America and the United Soviet Socialists Republic. The two countries, each with their own diametrically opposed beliefs, capitalism in the U.S.A. and communism in the U.S.S.R., were intrinsically predisposed to view the other’s ideology as alien and to distrust it, even without fully understanding the other’s beliefs. At the dawn of the Cold War, communism in the United States, although a single belief, was perceived in multiple ways across socioeconomic and occupational divisions within America, leading to conflict
