1. Analyze the success and failures of the following types of diplomacy: Big Stick, Dollar and Moral Diplomacy. The end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century was known as the Progressive Era in the United States. Inside the country, social and economic reforms would come to define the period, but outside the country, America’s economic and military powers were being used in diplomatic negotiations to expand the country’s influence. The United States saw it necessary to keep up with European powers in Asia, especially in the Manchurian region of China and at the same time avoid foreign intervention or investment in Latin American markets.
One of the elements of rule of law is procedural justice. As mentioned by Heidi Burgess and Sarah Cast (2013), procedural justice guarantees impartial outcomes from court. It makes people accept and respect the result even they don not like it as Pornpimol Kanchanalak(2012) points out, it brings about consistency, predictability and calculability. Although China has been trying to give a fairer hearing than the past, when emperors had the arbitrary power to control justice without lawful judgment, there have been cases that failed to uphold procedural justice. For instance, according to the researching result from Mike McConville (2010), final decision of the court is mainly made by judicial department and communist party instead of the
Introduction & Thesis Modernity in a Chinese historical context is a significantly more complicated subject as it is in other western societies. This is because the introduction of “modernity” to China was done through arms, not through an enlightenment process as is the case with Europe. The dominance of Confucianism In Chinese society also served to provide a general reluctance to embrace foreign cultures and was also used to defeat any attempts at legal reform. It is for these reasons that that ideas of modernisation and evolution were, for the most part, met with disdain and reluctance. That’s First Argument & Evidence – Introduction to “Modernity” through arms, not enlightenment, produced a “traumatic experience” A major issue requiring
Policies were constantly issued in order to strengthen the ideological domination through the compulsory educational system, which serves to promote ideological domination in generally four ways: provoking belief towards the CCP’s core ideologies; instilling love and obedience towards the CCP;shaping students’ opinions on certain issue and emphasizing the great achievements the CCP has made. The influence of ideological domination through compulsory educational system is not merely limited to simply prevent rebellion from happening, but even mobilize people to consciously and forwardly help preserving the government. In the case of China, it can be regarded as a very important reason for China’s lack of rebellion after
Although Mao’s teachings did influence morals and values, the teachings also negatively affected the Chinese people as well. His teachings were generally good examples on how one should function. However, the extreme emphasis on Mao’s exact words caused problems as anyone who would challenge him would face persecution from not only people loyal to Mao, but from the government as well. Quotes from Mao Zedong were frequently reprinted to ensure their influence on the Chinese people. The idea was that the consistent exposure of his words would properly guide people in the right direction and decisions would in a sense have a blessing from Mao himself if the actions were in according to his words.
1. The concerned threat is about intellectual property right of Subway in China. Subway brings the various intellectual property to China, but China is not a good environment for protecting the intellectual property. We call China as a Fake world.

Political pragmatism, economization of politics and the post cultural revolution quest for stability lead to the replacement of cultural discourse of harmony to political discourse of stability. The discourse of stability is the political use of the cultural discourse of harmony. In order to make this argument, I try to identify the historical and political purpose of protests in China and also to locate the space of protest/dissent in the cultural discourse of harmony. In china the idea of harmony has played a significant role in determining the state society relationship . The identification of the nature, role and purpose of protests within the cultural discourse of harmony and the same in the stability discourse would provide us the understanding
Unlike in England where the divine rights theory didn’t have many positive effects as the king with divine powers used the powers in selfish ways , in China the fear of losing the Mandate motivated rulers to act responsibly in carrying out the duties towards their subjects as efficiently as possible. The Mandate also paved way for incredible social mobility and upliftment for several peasant rebellion leaders who eventually became emperors. Most importantly it also gave people a reasonable explanation and a person to look for and blame for otherwise what were considered as inevitable events, such as flood, droughts, earthquakes, famines and disease
However, Chinese side is not that willing to move into such platform. U.S.-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue is a good platform to discuss such problems bilaterally and improving into higher levels of diplomacy could lead to global and regional stability at unexpectedly good levels. Also human rights is still a huge concern between United States and China since Americans accusing China by underestimating human rights and various violations on political and social fields. These political problems are occurring due to different regimes between two sides and American misunderstanding of Chinese structure and lack of transparency between Chinese government institutions. For the transparency issues, White Papers of the People’s Liberation Army are very important.
The Chinese will think that the external environment pressure them to take the action and they will not change the thinking. It makes the Chinese’s behavior and thinking are not balanced. Furthermore, Chinese society is collectivist. In the society, people have more than one character. For example, A is a leader in the society.When A make the decision, A need to consider the public interests and he cannot just follow what he want.
