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.

The Mongols usual policy was slaughtered and depopulated the entire cities that resisted, and
Through the Boxer Rebellion, it lingered China lots of casualties, economic damages and influences. Although the Boxers thought that foreigners were deteriorating China’s tradition through westernization, the Boxers deserve a bad rap because they were aggressive, frivolous, and
By taking large ships, maybe He was trying to intimidate other empires. Zheng he could have tried to intimidate other empires to elevate China’s status and put other empires under them. By doing that, the empires that traded with China could have felt threatened, which would be good for the Chinese empire because they would become globally known as a strong empire and no one would dare to attack them. If we look at the aftermath of Zheng He’s trade voyages, many countries, especially the North and Southeast Asian countries, started paying tribute to China (Beck). This means that if this was the purpose of his trade voyages, then Zheng He succeeded in his mission.

Because the Qin were legalists, any citizen who broke the law was executed. The emperor was hated for burning books and for forcing citizens to work on the wall. Shi Huangdi helped China centralize which unified them at the cost of human freedom.
As Tome Pires leads the first diplomatic mission to china, something no Portuguese had ever done before, He and the others encountered with the Chinese courts for violating Chinese law. “ He apparently offended the local Chinese officials in many ways, for example, by building a stone fort at the mouth of the Canton River and hanging one of his crew on Chinese soil.” Without any knowledge of the Chinese law and customs, the Portuguese were quick to offend and disrespect Chinese grounds permitting the outcome of violence and China to gain dominance. The Portuguese also advance to take action without knowing any background about the country. Gordon states, “The Portuguese approach was utterly unlike that of the Chinese. Instead of generalized dominance through diplomacy and recognition of local their strategy were, in fact, much closer to that of Genghis Khan: seize the trading cities and important resources, destroy resistance, tax trade, and make conquest pay for itself.” With the Portuguese oblivious to the Chinese thoughts and having no knowledge of the country itself, gave a benefit to China to gain control and killing the Portuguese along the way for the laws they have broken.

Emperors in Han china offered the Xiongnu many items in return for peace but they didn 't have enough to pay everyone!Eventually the Han ended the Xiongnu but it came at a price. They had little money left over which put the government into turmoil.
In all, the Chinese entered the war to keep America from influencing the entire region into rebelling against the rise of Communism, and to establish their new regime as power in the growing world. The Chinese also were beginning to “rub” elbows with the Soviets, but never fully trusted them either, as some of their underlying ideals were not the same in the long
Due to China’s Warring Period after the Han Dynasty, Buddhism gained popularity because no imperial authority was around to enforce laws. Once an empire rose to power, Buddhism was turned against. Initially the Chinese defended Buddhism and its policies, but after centuries, others increasingly analyzed how Buddhism had not presence in older documents. Buddhism began to be blamed for the political and social problems of Chinese society.
