The examination taken in order to receive a government position that was started during the Han Dynasty was also used during the Song Dynasty, so that people born into class were not automatically given government positions, but those who were intellectual and capable to hold a position were given the opportunity. Another factor that connects both of these dynasties is the fact that both have very similar religions, Buddhism, Daoism, and folk religion. The Han and Song Dynasties were by far two of the greatest Chinese
Even though they were located on different continents, amazingly both China and Egypt found similar ways to start their civilizations. Although differences existed in the goods they produced, what their writing was called, and how they ruled, the similarities between these civilizations were many. One big difference is that the Chinese civilization still exists
Qin Shi Huang-Di, during his short reign as the first emperor of China, unified and reformed the country, built the great wall and countless other things, including a gigantic tomb famously known for its terracotta army. Of course, while he was effective, he was also cruel, oppressive, and paranoid, getting rid of anyone who disagreed with him. The foundation of modern China was formed by his administration, and his reputation and legacy last until this day as a leader of history. In addition, Qin has influenced the modern world not only through his lasting legacy through his creation of China but also through his influence on Mao Zedong, a Chinese Communist leader. Mao, who led China to become a communist country, compared himself to Qin Shi

The two both assembled incredible structures, yet the Egyptians made Pyramids while the Chinese constructed the Great Wall of China. The antiquated Egyptians covered the dead with thought to conservation because of the conviction that the souls could utilize their bodies in existence in the wake of death. Conversely, the Chinese internment style relied on upon the area and in addition the primary religion. Taking everything into account, old Egypt and China were awesome developments that were eventually more comparable than various. Both had an extraordinary effect on the world and set an incredible case for the eras after them to gain from and progress further.
China’s tribute system was influenced by their beliefs, world view and geography. The tribute system existed and operated to regulate China’s trade and diplomacy with its neighbors. Sinocentrism or the acknowledgment of Chinese superiority played a major role in the Tribute system. For instance, the Chinese emperor was the “son of heaven,” and those who were in his inner circle of humanity, who offered tribute to the emperor, had more trading rights in China than the barbarians who did not offer tribute at all. These barbarians were uncivilized and culturally inferior in the view of China, who regarded themselves as the one and only true civilization, not as a part of many other nations.
One very large similarity between Hinduism and Judaism is the Caste system. Caste determines whom a person can marry, specifies what kind of work he can do, and even controls what he can eat or touch (Caste System, 2010, para. 1). The castes themselves are very different, but their existence as well as the presence of a distinguished caste of priests makes them similar to each other and dissimilar to some other religions. Some of the legends from the holy scriptures of Judaism and Hinduism are alike and the texts share a few similarities linguistically.

The colonial past and stemmed from it sentiments for “decolonization, development, and disarmament” along with relatively strong economy contributed to the strengthening of the vision of Brazil being “another West”, a leader of so called Third World, leading actor in G-77. In short, the perception of Brazilians that despite much of historical, ethnic, religious similarities with the Western countries they are different from them resulted in that the country pursues substantially different foreign policy strategies than their Western counterparts. Although Lafer’s work is focused on Brazil’s case, the work nevertheless gives valuable insight on how different factors build each respective country’s own perceived identity, which in turn affects its behaviour on international arena. Such authors as Prizel and Telhami with Barnett seem to support Lafer, and also argue that countries’ foreign policies are shaped by those countries’
