Erick Romero 10/19/14 2A Explain the origin(s) of the Chinese Civil War, and to what extent was the Communist victory due to the use of guerrilla warfare In the early 20th century, China ran into political turmoil. With the revolution in 1911, in which the last dynasty, the Manchu dynasty was overthrown. The new Republic failed to set hold on China and warlord era would start. But China continued to be oppressed by many foreign powers because it lacked a strong central government. The Chinese Civil War was caused by two opposed political parties, the communists and the nationalists, to see who would be able to restore order and regain central power over China to bring it back to its glory.
Name: ZuXin Liu ID #: 6708271 Professor: Andre Lecours Class: POL 1101 G Date: March 18, 2012 The 1949 Chinese Revolution The Chinese Revolution in 1945 - 1949 resolved the issue of what governing system could control over China, with witch, the revolution was involved the political crisis generated by the rivalry between the Chinese Communist Party and the bourgeois Kuomintang or the Nationalist Party of China. To put it in a simple term, this is a struggle between the communism and the capitalism. Now, the revolution or the Chinese civil war did not happened just by defining these flexible terms, and in spite of the fact that the Chinese revolution was created by a long history within China, the class’ difference of its people, and then came the influence over an idea of equality.

I am going to be writing a persuasive essay on the differences between the immigrations of the Loyalists and the Chinese. In my opinion, the Loyalists had a worse migration experience compared to the Chinese. In the following paragraphs I’m going to be explaining to you why the loyalists had a worse experience then the Chinese. The reason why the loyalists moved to Canada are because they didn’t like their government and also because of the American Revolution, they did not want to participate in the war therefore they moved to Canada where peace was found and there was no war. One of my first reasons why the loyalists had it worse than the Chinese was in 1783 when most were exiled from their own land.
After losing the civil war to Communist Chinese and fleeing to Taiwan in 1949, the nationalist Kuomintang (Also called the KMT) leaders of the Republic of China regarded the Communist Chinese government as illegitimate, claiming the mainland as rightfully their own. (Steinfield) Beijing, in turn, regards Taiwan as a renegade province, and has tried repeatedly to persuade the island to negotiate a return to the idea(Taiwan). The KMT returned to power in 2008 after being in opposition for eight years. During this time President Chen Shui-bian and his Democratic Progressive Party had engaged in policy that widely departed from the KMT, invigorating efforts to seek Taiwan's sovereignty. Current President Ma Ying-jeou takes a decidedly more conciliatory approach; shortly after taking office he declared a "diplomatic truce" with China.
In ancient China the suspect held a handful of rice in his or her mouth during a prosecutor's speech. Since salivation was believed to cease at times of emotional anxiety, the person was considered guilty if by the end of that speech the rice was dry (Wikipedia). These days we use a lie detector to detect physiological irregularities when asking a person certain questions about an event or incident. I. The lie detector is more commonly known as the polygraph and was made in 1921 by John.
In the 2nd century AD, the Chinese imperial government recognized Laozi, an ancient Chinese philosopher, as a divine being. Laozi played a critical role in the rise of Taoism. It became established in Malaysia, Singapore, multiple Chinese diaspora communities within Asia, Korea, Japan, and Vietnam. Before the Communist revolution, Taoism was one of the strongest religions in China. After a campaign to destroy non-Communist religion, however, the numbers significantly dropped, making it difficult to assess the statistical popularity
Before the evolution of Taoism can be examined, its origins must be taken into account. During the fourth and third centuries BC, China experienced a period of blossoming intellectualism which, along with many others, saw the rise of Taoism as a school of thought.1 It began as a stark contrast to Confucianism with the writings of Laozi and Zhuangzi at its foundation.2 Laozi and Zhuangzi thought that forcing action towards the government would only serve to make things worse for everyone. They believed that rulers should not interfere with the private lives of the people.3 In fact, Laozi went so far as to claim that
The purpose of this essay is to two unethical cases in context of the business environment, and analyse them from the decision-maker’s point of view. My two chosen topic will feature food safety problems, political corruption, reputation damage and abuse of privacy. In the case of food safety, I will analyse the case of the Chinese Milk Scandal, connected to Sanlu Group, back in 2008, which offended and endangered a huge number of people and infants. The second case covers the abuse of private information, which was entrusted to Yahoo! Inc., when they leaked out private account information of their users to the US Intelligence.
China’s response to this was to implement their prohibition against import of this drug by destroying a lot of opium on the ships arriving at the Port of Canton. Their anger and actions towards the Europeans caused the first Opium War. Frustrated, the British brought in their gunboats to open up the trade doors of China again (Macartney). China lost the war and was forced to sign the unequal Treaty of Nanjing, which included many conditions, like opening up several treaty ports, giving away Hong Kong, and giving Britain “favored nation status”. This all weakened the country even more.
Chinese currency manipulation undermines American manufacturing and our very own job-creating efforts. The unethical practices includes stealing intellectual property of the US, flooding the US market with cheap goods, child labor, wage and hour issues and poor working conditions, the traditional gift giving for the purpose of building network connections, bribery concepts and corruption affects all the shareholders of the USA in the business. These practices have a lot of negative impacts to the USA economy and business of the companies that can take the businesses of the United States of America down in the long term. I think the United States of America needs to pass a bill and enforcement of a trade law and include new ways of administration and management to fight currency manipulation and improve oversight of currency exchange rates and the Treasury Department should undervalue and trigger tough consequences and sanctions for Chinese’ s unfair trade. "China has been known to violate the intellectual property rights related to technology, goods, and services, harming the companies from which it steals.
