Introduction The East India Company was established by the British and then monopolized the trades towards the China. As the trades could not fulfil the ambition of the British, they requested for more benefits. However, the Qing court rejected and the relationship between the two countries came to a rapid deterioration. Unfortunately, after the out broke of the war, China became weaker than before. The following will discuss the relationship between Britain and China by how opium trade appeared and the effects of opium trade.
It states, "We have considered whether our administration has been guilty of some error or our actions of some fault. Have we failed to follow the Way of Heaven or to obtain the benfits of Earth?" The emperor talks about how he believes the drought, flood, and pestilince were his fault and that their deity was punishing the empire for failure to serve them correctly. It shows how a follower of Confucianism acts and thinks, and knowing this, shows how the empire was so successful for a while. If the majority of citizens believed in this type of ideology, it causes productivity and success to be a norm in the Chinese
The first time period is commonly referred to as Western Han (206 BCE – 2 CE). It received its name because the capital, Chang’an, was located in western China. However, in 2 CE, a break in Han history occurred until 25 CE. A non-Han emperor named Wang Mang seized the throne and established a new dynasty called the Xin dynasty. The reign on Wang Mang and his dynasty did not last long, as he was overthrown by a peasant revolt in 25 CE.
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.
Compared to areas, partly affected by Confucianism, South East Asia has already the Association of South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN) and the Asia-Pacific Forum of National Human Rights Institutions (APF). It should not, however be directly argued that a deficiency of human rights protection comes from the influence of Confucian culture. However, it still deserves to be considered whether the institution of Confucianism plays a role. Authoritarian governments often propose a blueprint that before economic growth and well-being for all, people should contribute their political freedom and be restricted partly. However, after the economic growth in China a development of the human right situation did not follow.
Mill basically inherited the anti-imperialist views from his predecessor liberal thinkers like Bentham, James Mill and Adam Smith (Sullivan, 1983). Bentham, James Mill and Smith have argued against imperialism and have negated the idea that it serves any economic profit to England. Instead they believed that colonisation led to disproportionate capital flow to colonies. They also negated the argument of colonies being an outlet for capital surplus. They maintained that colonisation can only be a remedy for capital surplus if greater amount of England’s capital is not invested in governance of colonies which they regarded is the case with most of the England’s colonies.
Emperor Tang Gao Zu, also known as Li Yuan, was a successful leader. He was the first ruler from the Tang Dynasty (618-907). Emperor Tang was very effective with the choices he decided to make for the military and taxation systems that later on paved the way for the oncoming emperors. It will be argued that Tang Gao Zu was a successful leader because he was a the one who established the Tang Dynasty The next reason why Emperor Tang was a successful leader was because he re-established a powerful military. The most significant is that he re-established a stable taxation system.

The government of the People’s Republic of China is known for orchestrating the economic boom of the Chinese economy, the spreading of Chinese culture beyond its borders, and its faceless authoritarianism of the government. Throughout history, the authoritative governments of China have promoted the industries and the culture of China, exporting them to nations beyond their realm. Not much changed about China. The government of China still promotes its culture and industry. Nonetheless, the players are different.
Ancient China was a highly developed civilization whose many dynasties each had some kind of significant development, let it be in trade, invention, art, religion, government, or architecture. Two dynasties in particular, however, marked the Golden Age of Chinese history. This period is known for its large economic revolution. The two dynasties were called the Tang & Song Dynasty. The Tang & Song Dynasties were experiencing a Golden Age due to the fact that they had a fair system in granting government positions, brought highly advanced inventions to the world, and had very intricate architecture.
