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.

The British had complete control besides the fact that they were corrupting china with opium they also built a colony named Hong Kong. This is a prime example of what I was saying on how the British abused their power. Another major part of European imperialism was the colonization or as I call it the torture of Sudan, in Africa.

Gin DBQ Subsequently following the Glorious Revolution in 1688, the popularity of gin skyrocketed, and eventually its sales surpassed those of beer in England. However, a great dispute arose over the regulation of trade concerning the distillation of gin. In order to restrain the vastly expanding gin market, the government imposed the Gin Act of 1736, which created a high license fee for gin retailers and high per-gallon tax.
