The ancient civilizations of Egypt and China were very similar in many different aspects. Their gov ernments and their geography were extremely alike and the religions of the two civilizations had onl y tiny differences. The early Egyptians also had the same concept of writing as the Chinese people who lived across the continent from them. Suprisingly, these two ancient civilizations that existed very far away from each other show a enormous amount of similarities in almost every area.

To what extent were changing ideologies the most significant force for change in China, 1949-1989 Between the years 1949 and 1989, China underwent numerous significant social and political changes. The beginning of this 40-year era was occupied with the ‘liberation’ of China, as the Peoples’ Republic of China was established; however the notorious Tiananmen Square Massacre marked the end of this era. The vast majority of both minor and major social, economic and political changes occurring between these years can be attributed to changing ideologies. Thus, changing ideologies were the crucial but not sole catalyst for change in contemporary China, 1949-1989 by building the foundations for political and social change, therefore being the most significant force for change to a major extent. The various political, social and economic reforms introduced by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) under Mao’s leadership, factionalism within the CCP itself and the changed ideologies of Deng Xiaoping were external factors crucial for the changes which occurred in China during this era.
For most of the history of China, its legal system has been based on the Confucian philosophy of social control through moral education, as well as the Legalist emphasis on codified law and criminal sanction. Following the Revolution of 1911, the Republic of China adopted a largely Western-style legal code in the civil law tradition (specifically German-influenced). The establishment of the People's Republic of China in 1949 brought with it a more Soviet-influenced system of socialist law. However, earlier traditions from Chinese history have retained their influence, even to the present. Law in the People's Republic of China is currently undergoing gradual reform, as many elements inside and outside the country emphasize the need to strengthen the rule of law in China, and international trade and globalization spur transformations in various areas of Chinese domestic law.

China and India have advanced tremendously over the last few decades in economic growth with China ranking second and India ranking third. During the middle of the twentieth century both China and India were consider among the poorest countries in the world.

Human rights in the People's Republic of China are a matter of dispute between the Chinese government and other countries and NGOs. Organizations such as the U.S State Department, Amnesty International, and Human Rights Watch have accused the Chinese government of restricting the freedoms of Speech , movement and religion and of its citizens. The Chinese government argues for a wider definition of human rights, to include economic and social as well as political rights, all in relation to national culture and the level of development of the country. In this regard, China claims that human rights are being improved. China also repeated many times that its constitution specifies not only citizenship rights but also the “Four cardinal principles“ in legal respect the "Four Cardinal Principles" are higher than citizenship rights, meaning there was legal base when China arrested people who wanted to overthrow these principles.
