Imagine being put to death for reading. During the Qin Dynasty anyone who read something the government didn't approve of was either quartered, cut into four pieces, or beheaded. Qin Shi Huangdi was a major turning point in history because he succeeded in unifying the empire, standardizing the writing system, the monetary system, length measurements, which in doing ensured that he built a lot of infrastructure. He also implemented Legalism, the use of Legalism pushed the subjects to have large projects, those construction projects helped the big region prosper later. The Qin Army was the pinnacle of China’s technology during the years before 200 BCE, a way the Qin demonstrated their power was by conquering the seven warring and diverging states
However, under his authority, the Orkhon inscription were created in Bilge’s own words. This inscription was his attempt to unite the Turkish people under a unified empire and maintain that empire afterwards. One claim that points to Bilge attempting to do this is with his relationship with the Chinese. He obviously does not care much about the Chinese at all, calling them deceitful and saying they kill the Turkish people in large amounts. He does say the Chinese were great trade partners though, giving them many things.
During the time when he was in China, he actually work for the court of yuan dynasty, which he learned many ruled and thoughts of how to be a competent Liegeman in Chinese court. He study a lot of eastern people’s philosophy, such as think more and talk less. But in a different way, he was one of the representative of Western culture in Chinese court, he's different than others, he acts and words offset the bad side of the Chinese court, and make yuan dynasty became one of the biggest empire throughout the history. When he went back to his country, he taught people the smarter way for living condition from Chinese people. He taught people the firework, how to make silk products, and some Chinese eating way, such as dumplings and buns.
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. From various documents, it showed that the cost of building the wall, does outweigh the benefits of it. Document C shows that the Han had paid tribute to the Xiongnu Mongols to stop them from raiding China, but it happened anyways. Also, Document E shows the amount of harsh conditions and people who were laid to work for this wall.
When they built the Hagia Sophia many new architectural techniques and combinations of techniques were used that the Romans had never dreamed of. They made a spherical shaped dome which helped to support more of the building’s weight and required less material than previous Roman architecture. (Document 4). Also, the Roman Empire had so much violence with emperors constantly fighting over power that they would not have been able to advance their skills in such a way to create something like the Hagia Sophia. Also the Romans traded for silk at expensive prices from Persia and China, but the Byzantines thought to learn how to make the silk from the Persians so that they could make it themselves.
In Newborn Sex Selection and India's Overpopulation Problem, the author Hrishikesh D. Vinod takes the population control experience in China for India’s reference. India is now considering different kinds of population control policies, including the Chinese one child policy. Yet, many scholars suggest that they should not take one child policy to consideration; that is, similarly to China, India also has the tradition of valuing male over female. If the country is adopting the one child policy, the country will be facing the expansion of gender inequality: newborn sex selection, causing countless of abandoned female newborns and imbalance sex ration, just exactly like the issue China is facing now. Many western scholars, including Nie and Vinod, have agreed that one child policy is at least a social planning failure, and therefore India should not walk on China’s old
Why did Chinese people come to Australia? (Tracey) Unlike most European diggers who came to Australia to start a new life, the Chinese did not intend to stay in Australia. The first Chinese came to Australia hoping to make good fortunes in the colony they described as the ‘New Gold Mountain.’ Large numbers of men from the southern province of Guangdong came due to economic difficulties back in China. In addition, political upheaval forced many to emigrate and provide for their family back home. Most were contracted to agents and wealthy merchants who sponsored their voyages and in return, these men would have to face years of difficult repayments or compensate by giving the gold they find.
It is an amazing huge project in the history of Chinese civilization. By using perhaps six million workers recruited, a thousand kilometers of new canal and canalized rivers was constructed. The technological achievement was a stunning.  The massive spending on the Grand Canal (and rebuilding the Great Wall of China and many other places) didn’t endear the Sui to its people, the dynasty collapsed in 619. This was wonderful news for the Tang Dynasty succeeding because it couldn’t be blamed for high costs, but benefited from the revenues of the new canal .
The Ming Family ruled the dynasty between the years of 1368-1644; almost three hundred years later this dynasty has impacted the Chinese history so much. The Ming Dynasty was a strong empire they had the government, the strength of its military, and the economic system to back it. With the memory of the Mongols, the Ming was determined to protect their lands from the invasions. The Ming dynasty was able to restore the respect for the Chinese traditions, seeking to stop all outside cultural influences. The Dynasty had a massive fleet ship and canon armed naval and over 3,000 ships created to have trade ship with the outsider world.
This paper thus aims mainly at providing evidence to the above stated hypothesis as well as discussing the historical Chinese cultural beliefs that have for a long time caused stigmatization to the people who get these marks on their skin. To begin with, the Chinese language and symbols are widely used in the tattoo industry. This is apparent because of its ability to convey bigger messages in a small symbol representation. However this practice is not that common, at least until the last decade because of the historical perspectives. Since ancient China, religious sects believed that the body was holy, a representation of the family and its lineage.
