Despite the similarities, each ancient civilization had differences that helped them become the great civilizations we study today. China was united under a single ruler for the majority of its time, while India was unable to be united until the Mauryan and Gupta dynasties rose to power. They both had economic differences too. For example, India had better access to trade and more things easily available to trade. The two civilizations also experienced social differences, like India had a very strong caste system, and China valued its peasants more than India.
One thing they had in comen was that they both had natural barriers separating them from other meager civilizations. Another major similarity was that religion played a big role in leaders staying in power because in china the Zhou claimed that gods gave them the through as long as they guided the people wisely and called their rule “mandate of the havens” and in Egypt it was believed that the pharah was a god on earth and he was son of Re. Finally another similarity is that they both depended on annual floods for the grouth of there crops. Differences: even doe Egypt and china have many things in common they also differ a lot.

Latifah McCollough Dr. B. Jack HIS 1302-08 April 20, 2010 Primary Source Analysis In 1949 China, under the leadership of Mao Zedong, China passed a law that granted women the same rights as men in a marriage. This was a big step in China because China’s traditional values grant men all authority. Because it was a law that broke the traditional values of the Chinese, Chinese men and women of the 1940’s may not have respected the law as well as they did others. This was the beginning of China moving forward and catching up with countries such as the United States and Europe. Many women in China were typical house wives in the 1940’s.

What was life like for women in the Paleolithic Period, and why did their social status change afterward? According to some scholars, women in the Paleolithic period had a rather equal status with men.

I love how the book puts it: “The inequalities of gender...decisively shaped the character of the First Civilizations and those that followed.” p.73. In other words, gender inequality played a huge role in the world from thousands of years ago and still today.
For centuries people seem to think race and ethnicity define a person, However, we now know that there is more to a person than just race and ethnicity. In our society the heritage of an individual most likely defines who they are. Each individual, regardless of religion, race, or ethnicity has a sense of pride burning within them.
