In the Classical era, two very comparable empires carried out the cycle of rising and falling on the far western and eastern ends of Eurasia. While only Rome had to struggle to grow from a single city to an enormous empire, both Rome and Han China rose to power on the backs of their brutal armies. And, the fall of both empires negatively impacted the life of common people as well as the cultivation of culture across Eurasia. In the beginning of its reign, the Roman empire labored to grow from an impoverished city-state into a more expansive political force.
Qin Shi Huang-Di has left a large impact on China, and by extension the world, that has lasted many years. Qin created the foundation of the Chinese country of today. Some scholars even believe that without Qin Shi Huang-Di, there would be no China at all (Gracie). Qin’s impact on the world was the creation of an entire country, a pretty impressive feat. Especially in his time, when nothing like China had ever been created before, his unification and reformation of China into a lasting country is inspiring.
Qin Shi Haungdi was one of the most important emperors in Chinese history; as the first emperor he needed to centralize the political economical and military power as one group, (theqin-dynasty-ag.weebly.com/government.html created by weebly ) The unification of china meant that Shi haungdi would have to create a standardized measurement, weight and a system of law that would apply to every part of China.

The standardisation of coinage can be seen as both a symbol of the emperor’s political authority and as an important economic development.
Over the course of its lifetime, China has hosted dynasties ruled by a number of families. From the 17th to 20th century, the Qing, Manchurian invaders, conquered China and established the last dynasty in the history of China. At the peak of the Qing dynasty, the quality of life of the individual living inside China was tremendous. The many rebellions over the course of the rule of the Qing would ensure the downfall of the dynasty through the decline of central power and the increase in foreign involvement, eventually leading to the loss of the Mandate of Heaven and the collapse of the Qing dynasty.

At a -7⁰C the phrase “Fo Xin Gui Shou” (pronounced foe seen gweigh show) meant nothing to me. Translated to mean “Buddha Heart, Ghost Hands,” this was the only thing that Dr. Wang Yue repeated to me as we stared into the distance while we waited for the last bus of patients in the city of Da Li to come to clinic. Night had fallen and the snow from earlier on in the day had made road travel difficult. It was the last day of my community service for my Internal Medicine rotation.

Lewis Model analyzed behavior and beliefs of people for learning cultural differences from different areas, thereby providing the reference basis for communicating better with people of different culture. In this article, Lewis divided countries in culture relation to three categories, which named linear-active, multi-active and reactive. Then Lewis structured a chart and offered details about the differences in some behavior of people from different culture by comparing. Therefore, people can foresee and make an assumption with a high veracity how others will contact with them. Lewis's model is correct in describing cultural differences within a certain period.

Chinese postmodernism in the 90s moves towards spiritual exploration, very much realist when it’s twisted with history and rather expressionist when it’s a process of self-discovery. The transaction from fragmentation, which is man’s identity exploited by the experience of impersonal collectivism, to individualism, which is the post-Mao discourse over history and self of de-construction and reconstruction, generates a tale of sorrows and disenchantment, desperate characters seeking for definition. Narrative produces protagonist looking for the inner-self, what they were or what they had before chaos took the shape of modernity, but more often than not, it’s the dramatic awareness of man’s loneliness what accompanies their journey through life
Qin Shi Huang-di is often regarded as a great leader within history. However, he was also paranoid and got rid of anyone who disagreed with him, but without Qin, there might be no China. Furthermore, despite his mixed reputation today, he brought six warring kingdoms together to form the basis of a country that has lasted to this day, an impressive feat that was a huge turning point in Chinese history. Qin’s effect on China and by default, on the other countries of the world was enormous. In fact, his dynasty, the Qin dynasty, even gave China its name (“Shi Huangdi Becomes Emperor”).
In order to understand the similarities of how order was in the Han Dynasty and Roman Empire from 300 BCE to 300 CE, the beginnings of each empire should be understood.
