Moreover, many political conflicts, which were clearly affected between the years of 1792 to 1842, arose as the Opium War was developing and was progressing to a conclusion; it is explicitly evident that the idea of the Chinese and British government contradicting each other was essentially the cause of the Opium War in the first place. But the tense times, Commissioner Lin Ze-Xu stayed incredibly loyal to his main task that was handed to him by the Daoguang Emperor – destroy all of the opium and prevent any more from entering China – he was able to dispose all of the opium that he was able to gain control of in different ways, such as “arresting 1,700 dealers, [seizing] crates of the drug” on both the Chinese harbors and on ships at sea, and
Gene Luen Yang offers a humanistic perspective on western imperialism in China during the late nineteenth century to early twentieth century in his graphic novel Boxers, a tragic narrative about Chinese grassroots resistance against foreign occupation in which an armed revolution ultimately fails. The novel focuses on religious identity, and cultural connections in the face of invasion. Boxers highlights the negative effects of imperialism through clashes between different religions, ideologies and power structures. Therefore, the criticism of western imperialism presented in Boxers could support a world systems theory approach to international relations because it shows to exploitation through westernization and the squandering of cultural
In Great Britain, instead of spending their own silver, they sold opium with Chinese citizens for silver to be used to trade between governments. Great Britain was exploiting China for its products while also smuggling in illegal drugs. After China ordered the opium to be taken away in 1839, merchants were outraged and asked the British government for assistance. The British soon attacked along the Chinese coast in June of 1840, and with their old military technology, China lost to the British. Britain made China agree to pay a large fine, open five more ports to foreign trade, give British citizens special legal rights in China, and offer the British a 99-year lease for the island of Hong Kong.

To not be reminded of the author 's role, allows the reader to view the narrative as fact when in actuality the author’s observation and interpretation separate the reader from the truth. Observation is often taken for granted as an ethnographer 's view and understanding is changed depending on the perspective he uses. Had he placed himself in the story, as he did in Deep Play: Notes on the Balinese Cockfight, the reader would have a clearer understanding of what information to believe or to question - as they would have insight into the characters recounting the story to him. Posing all information as fact gives the reader a false sense of security that Geertz is both a reliable narrator and has interpreted his observations without bias. While his approach to ethnography provides the reader with a coherent narrative, it neglects to show how the information was gathered or an evaluation of the reliability of the sources.
How important could a small scar be to a novel? In The Kite Runner movie directed by Marc Forster, the absence of the harelip scar on Hassan takes away a significant piece of the story for the audience that have not read the novel by Khaled Hosseini. The elimination of this small detail removes subtle hints that Baba is Hassan’s father. This omission, along with the impact of the poor acting in that scene, diminishes the parallels that can be drawn between Amir and Hassan and affects Amir’s redemption arc. The fact that the scar was left out leaves holes in the plot.

The practice of turning young girls into ‘opium brides’ in the middle east is horrible and must be stopped. The poverty that many farmers are forced to deal with is so extreme that they must turn to growing drugs, and selling their daughters into marriage. Sayed Shah, an opium farmer from Afghanistan, describes his bleak situation by saying, “I never imagined I'd have to pay for growing opium by giving up my daughter” (1). In many cases, young girls are sold is an opium bride, but because they are too young to marry they are used as slaves until they can be married.
