This is clearly observed through imperialism, which was the extension of control over people and territories, by forced submission through military superiority. As a result China was forced into an unequal relationship whereby they were forced to accept treaties, which reduced their sphere of influence and sovereignty. However it also resulted in the embracing of modern technology and revolutions that led China to become the nation it is today. In the first 50 years of from 1750 to 1800, western imperialism had little effect on China due to military and economic strength. During this period China was under the rein of Qian Long and was still considered the “Middle Kingdom”.
The economic problems of the Soviet Bloc were at the core of communisms downfall. In the early days of communism Stalin had set out to emulate the success of the western capitalist economies, which were at the time dominated by heavy industry (steel, power plants, and chemicals). Stalin thought that this success could be reproduced, but at a much faster and efficient rate with planning and communist control. Stalin did actually achieve this, and the soviet bloc enjoyed long periods of economic prosperity. However, Stalin’s adaptation of the model for economic success was too rigid, and as capitalism moved on, providing luxury goods to consumers such as cars, “the Soviets and Eastern Europeans found themselves in the 1980s with the most advanced industries of the late 19th and early 20th centuries- polluting, wasteful, energy intensive, inflexible-in short with massive rust belts” (Chirot, 1991 p.283).
But there is a less common literature that puts the economic strategy of Mao Zedong as the basis for Chinese economic miracle by affirming that Deng Xiaoping’s reforms only exploited in a correct manner an already built solid economic system installed during the Maoist period. What this essay tries to do is evaluate the possible pertinence of this alternative theory along with an analysis of such economic policies with the intention of understanding furthermore the possible consequences the Maoist era could have on the subsequent growth. In 1976, the Maoist era was ending with some rather doubtful results, as the tragic death of more than 50 million from the violence and starvation, starting a new era and leading to the economic miracle China is now experiencing. Although the general appreciation of Maoist economic policies is quite bad, the official data the Chinese state presented at the time was an elevated growth comparable to the contemporary growth we now consider a “miracle” of other countries. According to these sometimes criticized figures, China grew all through the 1960’s and 1970’s alongside Taiwan, South Korea, Hong Kong and Singapore with annual growth figures reaching short below 10% (Deng, (2009)).
Out of Control Introduction Malcolm Potts (2006) labeled the One-Child Policy as painful for a generation, but “oneof the most important social policies ever implemented.” From a removed perspective, he isright. China’s population, although still unwieldy, is on a trajectory to become manageable in thefuture. The nation’s economy is thriving, and China is quickly becoming a world power in manyrespects. However, the One-Child Policy has affected its people in a variety of manners notrepresented in that wide-scoped national picture. Anthropologists Faye Ginsberg and RaynaRapp point out that reproduction is not simply a biological issue.

Introduction: Cause of Protest Tiananmen Square protests in 1989, also called the June four Incident in China in order to clarify this from another Tiananmen protest. Since 1978, Deng Xiaoping, late leader of Communist Party of China, had led a series of economic and political innovations which had led to the gradual success of a market economy and some political liberalization that relaxed the system set up by Mao Zedong (Former Leader). But then some of the students and intellectuals charged that innovations had not gone far enough as the influence of the economic reforms had only affected farmers and factory workers, the incomes of intellectuals lagged far behind those who had benefited from reform policies. Quick Facts There were a series of demonstrations led by labour activists, students and intellectuals in China on April 15 and June 4, 1989. While the protest lacked an identical cause or leadership, most of the protesters were generally against the economic policies and authoritarian of the ruling of the Chinese Communist Party and expressing calls for democratic reforms in the structure of government.
However, by the time of his graduation, Sun believed that whilst the Manchu dynasty still existed, China would remain corrupt and backwards. His experiences abroad shaped his political ideas as at the beginning of the 20th century, the West were advancing and modernising their countries quicker than Sun’s own country of China. He toured Europe and America in hope to raise funds for the “Save China League” and made attempts to start a revolution against the Qing for example, the unsuccessful uprising in Canton, 1895. Sun worked hard travelling around to different countries, gaining more foreign funds and support.

China was a country of dynastic splendor, such as the Manchu Dynasty in the 1900s, but was later on tainted by imperialism. At first, Chinese had become very advanced in many areas, like astronomy, mathematics, etc. However, due to its isolation and lack of modernization, it became weaker than the other nations. Knowing this, aforementioned nations like Japan and Europe began to spread their influence and power into China. Imperialism became a huge component of China’s history, from 1839 to 1935.
This makes it difficult to know for certain what exactly what went wrong and why. Any analysis requires reliance on speculation and raises as many, if not more, questions than it answers. It is still worth looking into because it shows some important points that other companies can learn from.
