The early republic had frequent wars and changes in policies which eventually led to a collapse of central authority and economic contraction. In the republic of China, after the fall of the Qing dynasty, new industrial developments resulted in an increase in demand for Chinese goods. This demand led to an increase of profit for the industrial workers. Years later around 1931, the rural economy of China hit a Great Depression. The Great Depression was caused by an overproduction of agricultural goods which led to an increase on imports and falling prices in the Chinese market.
The roman and Han empire, although two completely different civilizations, yet despite that both fell due to similar key contributors. The Roman Empire and the Han Dynasty fell due to alike reasons. For both empires weak leadership and corruption, economic collapse and social disorder were three of the main contributor’s factors to their decline. Both the Roman Empire and Han Dynasty endured corruption that weakened their supremacy. Weak-leadership and corruption weakened both empires causing it to be a key factor to their falls.
The 1st and 2nd centuries B.C.E. were an influential tipping point in history. Obviously there lies a reason why this is the time in history where we move into the common era. A growing dissatisfaction around the world on how empires ruled led to some large, influential administrations falling. Some groups that entered the power vacuum include the Han Dynasty in China and the emergence of an imperial Rome.
The Civil War left America in a state of disarray, with over 600,000 casualties of the war and the South founds itself in social and economical ruin. The following twelve years, from 1865 to 1877, even though one may argue that Reconstruction for the South started as early as 1863 with the Emancipation proclamation, marked an era of reconstruction that contained many challenges: first, the reunification of this divided nation, second the conversion of the South, whose economy relied entirely on slavery and finally the integration of the emancipated slaves, culturally as well as politically. It was a time of transition from a belligerent conflict between the North and the South to a political one and a time of many changes. We may thus wonder to what extent the Reconstruction Era was a rupture in American history and paved the way to a unified nation? My argumentation will consequently fall in two parts: on the one hand I will demonstrate that the Reconstruction Era marks the end of a time and then I will show that the reconstruction is far from fulfilling its ambitions.
When the population changes, government adjustments are often a result. During the Black Death, disease spread and killed many people of different ages, wiping out a good amount of the population. “Some communities escaped unharmed, but in others, approximately two-thirds to three-quarters of those who caught the disease died. Before the bubonic plague ran its course, it killed almost 25 million Europeans and many more millions in Asia and North Africa." This shows a decrease in population during the Black Death.
There are many different ideas to be said the main reasons for the fall of Rome. But in the end, there were many things that contributed to Rome’s collapse.

The Cherokees tribe suffered heavy losses due to the illness and at the end nearly half of the tribe was dead. The Cherokee at first made land cessions to the Europeans in 1721 and 1755 but soon the British colonist wanted more land after the French and Indian war when they no longer needed the Cherokees. The Cherokee gave around 50,000 square miles of land in the end, including upper-half of their hunting grounds and most of what is now Kentucky. Not only the Europeans brought illnesses, they took land and made the involuntary Cherokees into the Revolutionary
From the initial settlements of the continent, disease brought over from Europe had severely weakened or killed off many different Native American tribes. Because of this, it is hard to find an accurate recount of native life before the arrival of Europeans making it hard to understand their societies before contact. Disease was not the only major effect on the lives of Native Americans. American capitalistic ideals began to intrude on the resourceful and relatively untouched west. The American’s began to turn many valuable resources, more specifically the buffalo, that the Native American’s used for survival into commodities with the sole purpose of making a profit.
"The Bum Blockade: Los Angeles and the Great Depression" it explains the how Los Angeles was affected by the Great Depression. Before the Great depression really took hold of Los Angeles, it all started with the dust bowl. "Throughout the 1930s, more than a million acres of land were affected in the Dust Bowl, thousands of farmers lost their livelihoods and property, and mass migration patterns began to emerge as farmers left rural America in search of work in urban areas. This migration added to Great Depression unemployment woes, stressed relief and benefits programs, and created social strife in many large American
The fall of Rome was mainly because of plagues wiping out most of the population. The fall of the Han dynasty began from decentralized rule. However, outside invasions had an effect on the fall of both classical civilizations. Series of plagues began to hit the Rome Empire by the 2nd century. These plagues lowered the population drastically.
The Indian Removal Act of 1830, put into action by President Andrew Jackson, developed many long lasting affects for the Native American tribes. The most significant impact of them all was said to be the Trail of Tears. This remorseless event led to an extravagant number of deaths to the Indians. Along with this deadly removal process, the Removal Act led to poor living conditions for the Native Americans. The Removal Act also forced the Indians to transform into a new culture.

Some say that Justinian and his death marked the time when Rome actually collapsed. Some of the downfalls that will be mentioned in this paper were, high taxes and bankruptcy of the empire. After these economic problems the Western Empire will never recover to what it was.
The Black Death took a horrific toll on the population of Europe and Asia. (Alavosus, 56). China’s population was cut by nearly half between 1200 and 1393, most likely due to the spread of the plague and malnutrition (Alavosus, 56). An estimated 24 million people died as a result of the plague which is about a third of Europe’s population. “The deaths of so many people speeded changes in Europe’s economic and social structure that contributed to the decline of feudalism.
