The Han dynasty also followed the tradition of the Sui dynasty and used civil service exams to appoint government officials which favored the poor and allowed them to move up in the world. There emperor ruled with extreme power and control and there dynasty prospered. The Roman Empire was a republic which relied on the judicial, executive, and a legislative branch just as our government does today. The most powerful governing body in ancient Rome was the Roman senate until the period in time in which Caesar Augustus came to power and became the first emperor of Rome. Rome used its strong military forces to govern its lands and the surrounding territories in which they captured.

Propaganda is used throughout the world in dictatorships, as well as any other form of government. The Han Dynasty(located in China) and Imperial Rome had many similarities and differences, such as: in both dynasties, they had one leader that controlled just about every aspect of the country, however, one of the major differences between the two were that in the Han Dynasty they had a monarchy form of government, where one man/woman is nominated to be the emperor/king, while in Imperial Rome the government was a family dictatorship, that’s a form of dictatorship where the leader has a cabinet of advisors to help him/her, such as a president or prime minister has.

The caste system which was a part of their religion mostly gave order to the land. However, both empires were ruled by emperors which benefitted each significantly. Even though they differed, they both had great leaders that expanded their countries by conquest. Mauryan Emperor is seen as the greatest Indian Emperor while Rome had many great emperors like Augustus and Vespasian. Mauryan expanded the Central Asian country as many of the great leaders of Rome did.
Consequently, many opposing scholars were killed in Xianyang. The legalism philosophy of Qin Shihuang justified strict rule to increase the empire's strength and the dominance of the emperor and his top rulers.

Qin Shi Huang’s greatest achievement was unifying China. He ended the opposition among the independent kingdoms during the Warring States Period, unifying China, however to achieve unification he had to centralize power and standardize administration, law, language, and weights and measures which improved the economy. Supported by intelligent and inventive advisors, Yingzheng carried out a series of improvements to develop agriculture and the military, and he rose rapidly in that period. During his reign he accomplished settling internal rebellions, and, managed to unify the other six states. He led the Chinese State of Qin to conquer Han, Zhao, Yan, Wei, Chu and Qi.
CAC China Between the years 500 and 1750, China’s involvement in trade and decisions regarding global trade greatly affected their economy. China has always participated in local trade amongst Chinese societies, however new technologies brought change in the trading system and the people the Chinese traded with. There were also time periods of isolation from other countries that were established in order to have less western influence. Transitions with new rulers, advancements in technologies, and expansion of their empire caused for Chinese economic growth or continuance.

The Senate of Rome had most control over the citizens. Han China did not allow lower class citizens to have a say on how the empire was ruled; while, Imperial Rome had a senate to represent their plebeian’s or ordinary people. Another difference between the Han China and Imperial Rome was that the emperor of Han China had been chosen through the family and the citizens of Imperial Rome chose their ruler.

The Bolsheviks had a huge strategic advantage due to their geographical position within Russia, in that they had control over major cities such as Moscow and Petrograd, which had many people within them. Due to this they controlled major factors and therefore could retrieve large quantities of war materials. The industry was also very efficient due to the huge mass population in which the majority supported the Bolsheviks. Due to these factors the Red army were very self-sufficient and had a military advantage over the white forces that had to depend on limited, foreign aid. Their control over major cities and thus access to more weapons therefore lead to the Communist victory in the Civil War.
If the west hadn’t of helped I think that the Taiping Rebellion would have continued to take over provinces and eventually the Chinese government. One reason why I think that the Taipings would have succeeded is because of their leader Hong Xiuquan. Hong Xiuquan was able to organize a society to follow him in his beliefs and initiate the Taiping Rebellion (Hong Xiuquan). Also he was very disciplining and subject to careful drill and strict command when it came to the military (Hong Xiuquan). This led to his many military victories.
Rome rose because they had a weapon called ‘enfranchisement.’ Rome was Italy’s capital in the territories of the Roman Empire citizens had rights and privileges, with good government, security and a good justice system (Roman-Empire.net).
