Ancient China was the center of the ancient world because they saw themselves as the middle kingdom. Influence of 2 ancient Chinese dynasties, the Qin dynasty and the Han dynasty, was astounding, as they made new innovations and techniques in their government. Their success was largely due to access to immense amounts of resources and innovative technologies that both dynasties used to have leverage civilizations nearby, and use for trade on the silk road. Quality of life for people living under the Qin dynasty wasn’t as good as compared to people living under Han rule. The Qin dynasty adopted Legalism as the dominant source of control over the people they ruled over while the Han dynasty adopted Confucianism to give merit or family connections.
power was shown internationally. Although the Monroe Doctrine took place several years before the Imperialism era, the Monroe Doctrine helped pave the way for the U.S. mission of spreading liberty and democracy. At the time this “mission” that the U.S. had is what helped them be unique compared to other nations, because most of the foreign countries tried to expand their territory instead of promoting liberty. The Imperialism era compares to the Cold War era because in both of these periods the U.S. was trying to promote liberty and democracy. The only difference between the two time periods is that in the Cold War era the U.S. tried to contain communism, so democracy could be preserved.
It can be the backbone to any society and provides stability and regularity. However, there can be a few exceptions to this. This is known as rebellion. Rebellion is an individual action, and it is also a necessity in any society because it provides variety. There will come a time where a person will have to rebel against something or someone to find inner peace or freedom.
Hierarchy also dictated the rights and benefits of the tributary, with those higher receiving essentially better treatment and more perks than those below them. The highly unequal relationship was never questioned and although it might seem this should have led to conflict, for long periods of time China and its tributary states existed in relative peace. Finally, the tribute system also restrained China from exploiting its tributaries, as there were rules established by participants and communication was regularly made through the emissaries and the tribute
Their policies and methods of colonization were consistent in every region they conquered because of this fact. The British colonies were inconsistent because the they were controlled by both the king and stock companies, which meant that different colonies had different incentives to settle. This hybrid of authority in each region meant that the North American colonies cannot be studied thematically as a whole, rather they must be analyzed as individual cases. These differences were determined by the motivations to settle the colonies and what environment the people lived
Once the ruler managed to accommodate all the power within his grasp, besides securing and constantly improving the essential within the framework of imperialism military potential, his other task of primary importance for sustaining the imperial integrity was to establish a working system of regional governance, given the fact that the disparate spatial location, resulted in utmost ethnic and religious diversity. Accordingly, this was what also contributed to setting the Ottoman empire apart from its contemporaries, namely, the ubiquitous quasi self-governing administrative system, based on the millet division, which created a clear legal and national identity-based distinction between the Muslim and non-Muslim communities. Moreover, this
This paper of our aims at bringing in on how the colonisation has effected Indian society, by studying a few important factors effected.  INRODUCTION: India a land of multiple diversities has a great and ancient culture. It’s one of the oldest and richest cultures which is now under serious threat as western culture is laying strong foundation in india and slowly wiping out indian culture. Western culture can also be denoted to as cutting-edge culture; this is because its notions and ethics promote the progress and sustainment of advanced civilization. Westernization has greatly affected our traditions, customs, our family and our respect and
The differences between the Qin Dynasty , the dynasty before the Hans, and the Han is that the Han emperor discarded the harsh policies of the Qin Dynasty. Not only that, the people in the Han followed more of Confucian principles rather than Legalism, and “soon became the basis for the creation of a new state philosophy.” However, despite the differences, there were similarities as well. The ruler, Han Gaozu, and his successors kept some of the practices the Qin Emperor followed. These practices are the system of local government and the division of the central government into three ministries: the military, civil service, and censorate.
Moreover, this dynasty is long ruled by the non-Han Chinese people. If set the Northern Wei as the predecessor, the Tang Dynasty would become the successor of a “barbarian” dynasty with no relevance to any other ancient great and united Han-Chinese dynasties. Setting the southern dynasties as the predecessor seems to be a good choice. Although these dynasties are weaker and more fragile than most previous Han-Chinese dynasties, the southern dynasties possess what the Tang Dynasty expected. These dynasties not only could derive their rulership back to a series of united and great Han-Chinese dynasties, such as the Western Jin and the Han Dynasty, but also possessed various legitimacy legacies, such as the preservation of the Han-Chinese culture and the dominance of the south China.
