Rebecca Fan Block 6 Take Home Essay During 600 BCE to 600 CE, classical civilization thrived, with more interactions between societies, new political power, and organization in East Asia. During this era, China was falling apart, thus there was many political changes, such as different rulers trying to reunify China together. While there was many changes due to China forming from warring states to empire, there was also continuous political philosophy during this period – Buddhism, Daoism, and Confucianism. Changes included the fall and rise of multiple dynasties, and also the struggle for political power. One main change of China during this era is the formation of an empire, and ending imperial states.
How far did the Cultural Revolution strengthen Mao’s personal control of China? Prior to the Cultural Revolution of 1966-9, Mao’s personal power over China had been weakened due to the rise of several political opponents and the power struggle between the years 1962-5 which meant that the Cultural Revolution increased Mao’s personal power to a significant extent. However whilst Mao may of now had ultimate authority, this came at the expense of the increased militarism of China and in turn led to the increased power of both Lin Biao and the People’s Liberation Army (PLA). There are other aspects that the Cultural Revolution had an impact in terms of power that allowed Mao’s own power to be strengthened including, the weakening of the Chinese Communist Party, the militarism of China and the power of the army it’s leader Lin Biao. It can be argued that the Cultural Revolution strengthened Mao’s personal power, because one of the main outcomes was the weakening of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and their power.
Gordon Wood’s The Radicalism of the American Revolution provided an interesting and insightful view into the changes that were wrought by the struggle to create a republic on North American soil. Wood’s central thesis was that the political reform movement ushered in by the Revolution caused a deep social revolution, which changed the nature of American society and had a powerful impact on everything that the United States has undertaken throughout its entire existence. According to Wood, the Revolution caused America to run through several different phases of development, moving from the social organization of a monarchical society to that of a republican society and finally ending up as a democratic society that ultimately distressed many of the Revolution’s leaders. Wood claimed that the political reorganization in America changed how citizens viewed one another and had a subtle, but deep and profound change on their social relationships. Further, the American Revolution was a radical movement that changed the world in a way that shook it to its foundations by challenging the concept of aristocracy in the Western World that had existed for two thousand years and completely changed the political and social landscape in the United States and the world forever.
Also, due to the large amount of political changes that occurred during this expanse of time, the Silk Road also traveled through the new countries that began when the Roman Empire collapsed. This created the cultures of these nations along the Silk Road. In conclusion, the Silk Road’s basic purpose remained intact from 200 B.C.E. to 1450 C.E., but the important interactions that occurred on it did not. Empires collapsed, causing new nations to form, which in turn brought countless changes to the cultures and the interactions between the merchants and peoples along the Silk
During these years, which mark the first in Mao’s reign as leader in China, there were a number of key features of Communist rule in China, notably land reform, economic policies, as well as violence. In this essay, I intend to argue that violence was a key feature, but that there are other factors that could be described as being ‘key’ also. Mao’s immediate aim upon coming to power was to gain control of the cities, where the GMD had been at its strongest. He was determined to stamp out any remaining support for the GMD and ordered massacres of suspects. 65,000 people were killed in Guangzhou and 28,000 in Shanghai.

AP Track DBQ Essay #3 When it comes to history, America is affected by it drastically because history has the ability to change the country’s way of developing.

The decline of the Romanovs and the Russian revolution occurred due to varying influences externally and internally. The social and economic state of Russia and the changes transpiring had a large impact of the fall of the Dynasty.

Yahoo! In China Case Study The Yahoo in China case provides a prime example of some of the many difficulties associated doing with international business. Doing business in China tends to be even more difficult than that of other countries, due to their rigid rules and regulations. While I agree with Yahoo releasing the name of Shi Tao to the Chinese government, I do feel that they could have done a better job of going about the situation. However, I understand that privacy concerns and the right to free expression are central to not only this particular case with Yahoo, but with other companies doing business in China.
A “switched on” country is widely connected economically, socially, physically and politically. Factors that affect this are natural resources, trading, culture, skilled labour force, languages spoken education and healthcare and its economy. China used to be a communist country, so there was a lot of State interference when involving what products to be bought and sold, in the 1990s, China’s economy became more Capitalist so products that are now bought and sold are based on what the population demand rather than what the government choose. The effect of this is that China’s links to other countries increase and global brand names become more well-known in China. Trans national companies start to set up there due to the massive population and amount of natural resources which provide potential employee’s and raw materials for industrialisation and new buildings are built for offices, factories and homes and it provides many more jobs for Chinese people.
