He may have been democratically re-elected in 1952 and 1956, however his leading period was plagued by insurgencies from ethnic minority groups and communists, a nation-wide economic immobilism, as well as a wide spread inefficiency within his own government. However, U grabbed a decisive victory for his final time in 1960, only to anger his military and his minorities by placing Buddhism as the official state language. It was this decision that led to his eventual ousting after two years by a military coup, and the instatement of General Ne Win. Ne Win’s new government ruled on a single-party system under the Socialist Programme Party, with the goals of shut down opposition/ independent newspapers, nationalizing the state economy by taking large control of the private sector, rescinding the federal system, and finally and perhaps most importantly for Myanmar’s development, was the birth of the “Burmese way to Socialism.” His new constitution in 1974 created a fully authoritarian rule of the military in Burma, and created a catalyst of for military action against the minority ethnicities and the communist rebels. For example it was in 1976 when the National Democratic Front organized twelve different Ethnic parties to unite against their common enemy of the Ne Win military regime.
Another factor that affected the people and caused them to rebel was the heavy taxes that were put upon them. And finally, the wars that were frequent at that time because of the disunity in the empire. How they came to power The first step that the Tang Dynasty took to begin its empire was reuniting China were it used its strong military power with the lead of Emperor Taizong. Then Li Yuan declared himself the new emperor of the Tang Dynasty to be known later as the founder of the Tang Dynasty. Parts it controlled Under the lead of the Emperor Taizong in the Reign of Zhen Guan the Tang Dynasty was able to conquer and reunite the northern Mongolian Plateau, the Gaogouli area that consists of northeast China and the northern Korean Peninsula, they were also able to include the Baiji area that included the southwestern Korean Peninsula In the 7th century, the Tang Dynasty also included Central Asia to its empire.
Soon after, construction work on his mausoleum was started. Although the kingdoms had been warring for over 200 years, Shi Huang through military strength and strategy was able to conquer the other kingdoms and unify them under his command. He then proclaimed himself the first emperor of China in the year 221 B.C. Under his rule the Great Wall was built, a single code of law was established, and a single written language was implemented. (Sayre) It was after the warring stopped that full-scale construction
Analysis and interpretation Both Idi Amin and Pol Pot had harsh dictatorships in which they both eradicated people that were essential to their economies. They took similar actions in trying to “repair” their economies and societies as a whole. However their actions which include killing many of their citizens, nationalisation and expulsion of foreign businesses only caused damage in the short term which caused problems like food shortages. However although in the beginning both Cambodia and Uganda were in the same situation in terms of economic decline it was Cambodia that was left unable to recover as Pol pot had eradicated intellectuals in society . Idi Amin took power in 1971 through a military coup according to Source 1 at a time when British – Ugandan relations were strong therefore Amin had western support when he took power (source 1 ) which shows that cold- war politics influenced the rise to power of Amin.
Therefore he crossed the Yellow River and attacked Zhao, inflicting a severe defeat. At this time Zhao Xie was king of Zhao, Chen Yu was in command of the army, and Zhang Er was prime minister. All fled and took refuge within the walls of Julu. Zhang Han ordered Wang Li and She Jian to encircle the city, while himself camped to the south and constructed a walled road along which to transport supplies of grain. Chen Yu, the Zhao general, with a force of some 20,000 or 30,000 men, camped north of Julu.
A descriptor often applied to North Korea is “Stalinist,” and with its old-style Communist imagery and propaganda, not to mention its political purges, the state has much in common with Stalin’s Soviet Union. But North Korea has never known anything other than absolute rule. Before Korea’s annexation by Japan, in 1910, Koreans were living under a monarchy. After that came rule by imperial Japan and Koreans bowed to the Japanese emperor. After World War II, Japanese occupation of Korea ended with Soviet troops occupying the north, and US troops the south.
The sixteen years old monk at that time, Gyatso was enthroned by the Tibetans ruler of Tibet. Taking the war against china to the next level in many forms of military battles and diplomacy, representing the Tibetans as the best negotiator in many peace talks with china, then lading them to the uprising of 1959 against China ended up with failure and eliminated him and supporters to
In my view, Li Yanshou’s answer to the legitimacy issue serves to support the Tang Dynasty’s legitimacy. The Tang Dynasty viewed the Northern Wei as one of its predecessors since it established itself by inheriting the rulership from the Sui Dynasty, the direct successor of the northern dynasties. That is why Li Yanshou introduces these subtle ways to show his support to the northern dynasties. However, the Northern Wei, as mentioned in previous chapter, did not have a predecessor to provide the legitimate rulership. Moreover, this dynasty is long ruled by the non-Han Chinese people.
In the 1970s, Cambodia was involved in Civil War and invasion from foreign countries for several decades, which destroyed everything including infrastructure, human resources, and physical structures in this country. Additionally, the political system was a monarchy with King Norodom Sihanouk as the Head of State. After the King went outside of the country for a conference, General Lon Nol used a military coup to overthrow the King. He became President and changed the name of the country to the Khmer Republics in the year of 1970. During his administration, he allied with America; and received financial funding and technical support such as military weapons to control his regime.
Therefore, Yassa consisted of the Mongol’s standards for society; as shown in the quote, he prohibited more blood from shedding and certain crimes from being committed which resulted in the peace among his people. Pax Mongolica also inspired “rich cultural development for western Asia; that period is referred to as the Pax Mongolica. The arts flourished, especially the illuminating and illustration of sacred Islamic texts and works of secular scholarship. Artists blended such Chinese motifs as lotuses and dragons with typical Muslim styles and themes, which created a unique multicultural artistic blend”(Il-Khanid Dynasty, Blackwell). Pax Mongolica brought cultural diffusion to the Mongols; since it was a period of peace, the Mongols were able to explore the cultures of people who lived within the empire.
The court was originally designed to hear 1,200 cases per year. The court also takes a majority of its cases on mandatory jurisdiction as the court of immediate appeal for the circuit courts.

Although the persecution of Christian, Christians in Korea grew tremendously. The Japanese persecution lasted 35 years until 1945, when Japan surrendered to end the Second World War. Koreans, however, had their freedom for short time. Soviet Union, China, and United States divided Korean penisula half. United States stayed in South Korea and Soviet Union and China stayed in North Korea.
He starts with a chapter on the Wan-li Emperor before branching out into focusing on his underlings in the government. For each character, he lists their successes along with their background before reaching the controversy that inevitably surrounds them, leading to their downfall. Throughout the chapters, it becomes noticeable that many of the controversies arise due to Chang Chü-cheng, an imperial tutor and formerly, highly respected grand-secretary to Wan-li. After being disgraced after death, anyone associated with him in government immediately came under suspicion and eventually got ousted. Many of the following chapters focused on characters who fit such a description, like General Chi’ Chi-Kuang and Li Chih.
Once they entered they were able to push the Allied forces back completely south of the 38th Parallel, and even past Seoul, Capital of South Korea. This counter-attack from the Chinese lasted until the middle of January of 1951. At this time, UN forces were able to regroup enough to counter the Chinese and push them back to the 38th Parallel by May 1951. From May till July 1953, the battles remained a stalemate between the North and South, as the “Superpowers” America and Russia/China did not execute any maneuvers that could have ultimately lead to a Nuclear War, as this was one of the main reasons for the Cold War, besides the complete isolation or containment of Communism. 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 Battle of Dien Bien Phu (March 13, 1954 thru May 7, 1954) was the last confrontation of the 1st Indochina War (1946-1954); and in remembrance, the 1st Indochina War started when the French returned to Vietnam after WWII. At that time, the French fought to reclaim their plantations (rice, rubber, salt) and pharmaceuticals enterprises; which had previously been abandoned (so to speak); when their protective element was re-assigned to Europe. The French were caught in a cross-fire; moreover, knew if China went Communist as they did (after their Revolution with Japan); all of Southeast Asia would (domino effect) follow suit. The domino effect of colonialism from the 1600’s was capitalism, and the follow up to it was (red) communism. The
