This meant that Mongols cared for more than just conquering and destroying cities, that they were actually civilized. Many different careers flourished under Mongol rule. For example, the arts, winemaking, and silk-making industries thrived because of the Mongols love for art, wine, and their contacts to China (Document J). Another major innovation that was created was the Pax Mongolica. The Pax Mongolica protected the tax free customs zones that helped Persia, Armenia-Georgia, Asia, and China prosper (Document J).
When visited by travelers the Mongols were known to have harsh laws on theft make them very trustworthy to trade with (Doc K). The Security of the Mongol trading was so good that you could leave your things unattended and come back to them. Kubilai Khan’s rule also helped to shape the empire and improve the stability.

People who had their strong feeling about keeping the country sane and clean with only the American population, there was nothing but hatred towards
The Han dynasty adopted the Confucian ideology which was about virtue, respect, obedience (filial piety), and moderation in all things. This ideology was able to cover some of the authoritarian ways and policies of the previous dynasty. Although the Qin regime tried to destroy and repress history and documents by burning, their short reign did not allow complete destruction but it greatly affected the cultural expression that was built by the dynasties before (Fercility 2017). However, the Han regime was able to revive the culture and vestiges. The Han were very good record keepers and noted even the music, rituals, techniques, songs and instruments used.
Which took from 206 BCE -220 CE (400 years). The only problem with this wall, was that if it was worth the money and the lives that were lost for the possible benefits that would come.

Tensions between the United States and China existed because in the many years prior to Nixon’s presidency, no contact with China had been made. In order to calm these tensions, Nixon took to a bold step to visit China himself. During his trip, he discussed an alliance between the two nations in order to deal with the threat the two had in common, the Soviet Union (“The Richard M. Nixon Administrations”). Nixon’s visit to China helped to strengthen the United States foreign policy because it lessened the resentment China felt towards the United States therefore lessening the number of enemies the United States dealt with. When others spoke of Nixon they said that he, “... took bold and imaginative steps to improve U.S. relationships with Russia and China” (Drew 61).
The scholar gentry became such a dominant force in Chinese politics and society because they held a high status and prominent role. Those who were able to pass the difficult exams and earn position in high offices were treated with reverence and achieved special social status.

The main reason for its passage was that the chinese were seen as an invasive species, even to the minority groups.

Not to mention they were an easy scapegoat for the problems America faced.
Revolutionary, that is, in an almost literal sense. The Ming emperors took a great fondness for the production of art, and as such became more involved in its patronage and spread than ever before in Chinese history. Imperial artists were expected to adhere to strict rules of both quality and subject, edging back from the emotional feel of the previous dynasty and returning to literal depictions. However, due to the emotional tie artists held to the pieces of the Song Dynasty, many were unwilling to concede to such a cold portrayal of nature, and there was actually an unprecedented split in stylization. Those who softly defied the imperial standards became even more imaginative and expressive, to the point where their drawings took on a cartoonish appearance.
