Under British rule, Indians politically suffered. The army, government, and police force, was all favored towards the British, and they passed laws that worked against the Indians, like the Rowlatt Act. The Indians were negatively impacted economically. This was because, the British ruined their lands, by stripping their forests and forcing them to grow cash crops.

I think the idea of civilizing other nations or culture in European ways was somewhat crime against humanity. The forcible trade of opium to China by British East India Company was a form of imperialism. An imperial commissioner from China, Lin Tse-Hsu writes “Letter to queen Victoria” P-431, he states “Your honorable nation takes away the products of our central land, and not only do you thereby obtain food and support for yourselves, but moreover, by reselling these products to other countries you reap a threefold profit.” What the letter makes abundantly clear is that the native people are being robbed off their products by the foreign invading power, their economies in
The British merchants went back angrily and asked the British government to dispatch troops to China. They wanted to use military power to open up the gate of “free trade” in China. After an intensive debate between the war party and the peace group of parliamentarians, they decided to go to war. Unexpectedly from the perspective of the Qing emperor, he lost the war. The emperor Daoguang compromised and dismissed Lin Zexu.
On December 16, 1773, the Sons of Liberty led by Samuel Adams dressed up as Native Americans and dumped the entire shipment into Boston Harbor. This act became known as the Boston Tea Party. The king, angered by such open defiance, and the Parliament passed the Intolerable Acts, also called the Coercive Acts, to punish Boston. Intolerable Acts has four main punishments, first , close Boston Harbor until the citizens of Boston paid for the dumped tea. Second, to take control of colony away from Massachusetts by limiting town meetings to once a year and replacing government officials by royal officials.
Currently, China accounts for about 48.2 percent of the world’s total amount of coal, which is around 1.8 billion tons. Much of the coal and other resources coming from China, is brought to America. America and China have a stable friendship and work together to make both of their countries better. But during The Opium Wars and the Boxer Rebellion, the two countries did not really get along. The Boxers had chosen to do something about it.
However, Japan disavowed these treaties of war. By attacking Pearl Harbor, indulging in biological warfare, and executing chemical murdering and torturing of prisoners, civilians, and slave laborers, Japan broke the laws of war on many levels. Throughout the war, Japan continued to operate above the law. The Nanking Massacre was an incident in December of 1937, during the Second Sino-Japanese War. The massacre consisted of mass murder by Japanese troops against the residents of Nanjing, the capital of the Republic of China, which lasted for six weeks.
The 1911 revolution was initiated by an accidental bomb explosion in the Hubei province that sparked suspiciousness from the government to the soldiers. The soldiers became increasingly rebellious as the government started to invade and inspect into their actions. Meanwhile, the government made a big mistake in deciding to change two private railways into the nations property. However, the people of the Sichuan province were not going to give the railways away without a fight because many people had invested their fortunes into the railways. This angered the government and decided to take action against the civilians by arresting and killing numerous people which created a total bloodbath.
Human trafficking in China is a profitable international business that is spreading out owing to various factors, including the high-pressure implementation of the One-Child Policy, a faulty legal system, and the blind bond to long stagnant cultural traditions that degrade women. In China, Communist Party directive overlook the legislative and judicial process. The primacy of government policy results in the ineffectualness of laws that theoretically defend and protect female and women in China.(Li,1996)8 In 1992, the Law on the Protection of Women 's Rights and Interests ("LPWRI")(Tiefenbrun,2008) was passed, which was the first basic law to protect women 's rights and interests in China.7" The LPWRI forbid kidnapping, trafficking, and buying women, though it fails to prescribe any special penalties for these offenses.(Tiefenbrun,2008) The LPWRI also fails to stipulate a definition of discrimination against women.(Tiefenbrun,2008)
They dumped about 324 chests of tea into the boston harbor, destroying all of the tea. The British government responded brutally and it later escalated to the American Revolution. Intolerable Acts: A series of laws passed by the British Parliament in 1774 after the Boston Tea Party. They were meant to punish the Massachusetts colonists for throwing a large amount of tea into Boston harbor.
The British were in massive debt following the French and Indian war, therefore they placed taxes on the colonists in order to regenerate some of that money lost. The Sugar Act of 1764 taxed the sale of molasses in hopes to gain some lost money, but this act led the people of Boston to boycott the molasses industry. The Stamp Act of 1765 shortly followed, making colonists buy a stamp with every paper product. The rage the colonists felt over the passing of this act, led the colonies to begin to unify as they together boycotted the trade industry. The Townshend Duties of 1767 imposed taxes on glass, lead, paint, paper and tea, but this only led to the colonist to again boycott the trade of those items and start newspaper attack.
The spread of Islam and China greatly contributed to world development during the 1500’s. Christendom in Europe enhanced Christianity throughout the Byzantine Empire.

For my research project I researched the Chinese Americans or the ethnic Chinese who came to America during the 19th century during the gold rush. During the 1880’s into the 19th century it was especially bad with white people saying things like they were a “yellow peril” and regarded them as downgraded even though there were provisions for equal treatment in the 1868 Burlingame treaty. Things did not get better for Chinese immigrants until the U.S. and China became allies in World War II as restrictions on entering the country, naturalization and mixed marriages were being lessened. Finally in 1943 Chinese immigration was allowed once more but the massive wave of immigrants did not come until 1965.
