When Japan began to unify, looking to its most powerful neighbor for guidance was the best choice for the budding empire. Using centralized government policies found in the Tang Dynasty, Japan was able to centralize their nation very quickly. By eliminating clansman through legislature and then replacing them with administrators; Japan created a new, loyal aristocracy.

As a product of the Revolutions of 1848, European sentiment towards Nationalism grew extensively among the middle and lower classes. European ethnic groups and nations desired a self-determined state that represented their group and culture. As a result, both Germany and Italy would experience unification movements within several decades. By 1871, the Italian states would be unified under the Italian tricolour flag; and in the same year, the German states would become integrated into Germany under Wilhelm I of Prussia. Nationalism is both a political and social system in which the nation-state is of utmost importance -- in which nation-states act in their own self-interest and are of full sovereignty.

In the republic of China, after the fall of the Qing dynasty, new industrial developments resulted in an increase in demand for Chinese goods.

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.
However, the Tokugawa had a great economy, commerce and manufacturing industry. The strengths of the Qing Dynasty were the ability to improve methods of irrigation, which increased farm production. However, the military was still not strong enough to protect against few invasions. In addition, the population was increasing rapidly, and the government was too weak to police and protect all of the people. Tokugawa Leyasu’s dynasty of shoguns, presided over 250 years.
The Ming empire faced internal issues that were similar to the Ottomans and Mughals, that caused major shifts in their government, economy, and ultimately their society. One of the biggest factors influencing this shift was the inflation of silver. The Ming emperor uses Spanish silver for their military expenses, and his subjects use it to pay their taxes. Due to this overuse and lack of steady supply, the price of silver went up. In Doc 4, Charles Mann explains that due to this inflation, the government ran out of money.
The United States proved to be too big of a power for Colombia to go against so they easily handed over Panama. Although Theodore Roosevelt’s diplomacy seemed very militaristic and strict, he was a man of peace. His influence went as far as helping end the war between the Russians and Japanese.

China on the other hand had more problems in its bureaucracy and civic unrest. For example, some peasants who had lost their farms had to sell their children into service. A third difference is that as previously stated, China had a successful revival while Rome did not. Rome divided and the Western half survived but was diminished by attempts to regulate the economy and decline tax revenue ’s.
