  • China 2000 - 1,724 words
    China 2000 CHINA 2000 What is China? Is it maybe the image of the ancient times with the glorious old dynasties, the powerful emperors, the wondrous temples, the fascinating winding gardens? Or is it maybe a strict communist world with uniformed people wearing Mao suits and living in dreary gray concrete apartment blocks? Or perhaps it is the skyscrapers of Hong Kong and Shanghai, the horrendous traffic, the buzzing commotion, ultra modern electronics and plate glass buildings? In reality, China is all this in one. It is a land that intertwines a miraculous ancestral heritage with a capitalist reality blooming in the heart of a still surviving communist system. In todays China, the gigantic ...

  • Confucianism And Its Implications In Modern China - 1,847 words
    Confucianism And It's Implications In Modern China Confucianism is a time enduring philosophy that has stood up to invading clans, war, resentment, enforcement and infringement of new philosophies, and eventually, revival. For almost 80years, up until the late 1970's, Confucianism and its ideas and values have been all but wiped away from China. Though effort was made to remove Confucianism for good from China by the Communist leader Mao Zedong in 1949, the ideas and values were so deeply embedded into peoples mind and the culture that even suppression could not keep it out of the culture and practices. The main factor that has brought Confucianism back into the limelight in China and other ...

(Haggard 1995, Pg 280) Even though Taiwan was under an authoritarian regime, the economic success it had during that time could be considered a factor in bringing about the democratization of Taiwan. One of its most well known economic improvements was its land reform policy. The land reform policy was made up of three major goals of which it accomplished. An increase of overall agricultural production freed up workers for industrial jobs and gave the country a surplus of agricultural goods it could sell off. A second goal was to equaliz ...

  • Taiwan Perspective: - 706 words
    Taiwan perspective: The major problem between Taiwan and China is the Taiwanese economy. If the island state had never managed to industrialize under the GMD, it would have been absorbed by the CCP and the rest of mainland China long ago. As is, its strong economy, international trade and connections keep it steadily propped up in its uneven fight. Globalization and fine balance between defence and parlay of Taiwan are the only things that will keep it out of the hands of China. Taiwan's modern life began the start of the peoples republic of China; almost all of the fleeing neo-fascist and capitalist Goumindang went to Taiwan to escape persecution and to reorganize for the struggle against t ...

  • The Beginning Of World War Ii - 1,108 words

Germanys actions on that fateful morning ignited a conflict that would spread like a wildfire, engulfing the entire globe in a great world war.

  • The Cold War Beginnings - 560 words
    The Cold War Beginnings Although the Soviet Union and the United States had been allies in World War II, disagreements over the organization of the postwar world led the two countries to compete militarily and politically through the next several decades. In the 1950s this competition was particularly intense, resulting in the Cold War and in regional proxy wars. The U.S. perceived Soviet support for the spread of communism as a strong threat, and American foreign policy attempted to contain and thwart communism around the world. U.S. foreign policy during the 1950s was shaped largely in response to perceived threats from the Soviet Union; U.S. participation in the Korean War and American re ...

Although the peasants rejected the traditional Buddhist religion by spurning idols, Mao praises the peasants for saving certain idols such as, a statue of Pao Cheng who was a official in the Sung Dynasty (960-1127), an impartial judge. 31 Finally, he applauds the Hunan peasant association for restoring order, which was to be a theme echoed by Mao during the Cultural Revolution when Mao relied on the military to restore order.

  • The Opium War - 593 words
    The Opium War The Opium War, generally taken as the opening event of Chinas modern history, has cynical Chinese patriots and ashamed devoted Westerners for more than a century. In mainland China it is used today not only as indication of firmly established Western immorality, but precisely as proof of the Marxist-Leninist principle that free-enterprise capitalism leads to hostile imperialism which allies with conservative feudalism to the expense of the common people everywhere. The modern Chinese sense of complaint over the war is reinforced by the obvious facts that opium smoking was harmful and that Commissioner Lins effort to repress the opium trade was the instantaneous event for battle ...

  • The Terms Traditional And Modern Are So Often Used In Conversation, And Also In Reference To Society, That It Is A Good Exerc - 1,861 words
    The terms traditional and modern are so often used in conversation, and also in reference to Society, that it is a good exercise to consider what these terms do mean in a comparative light. Berman in All that is solid melts in air puts forward an interesting set of ideas in the comment that people who live in traditional ways, or in modern ones, can almost be said to occupy different states of mind. For instance, a full 500 years have passed since some peoples first met up with the influences of the more modern Western world. (1988, pp. 15-16) However, in many cases, the adjustment has still not been made, and the conflict of what is traditional and what is modern continues to occur with dif ...

    Tinanmen Diary Change is the dramatic art of survival. If one is to survive, one needs to adapt to changing needs and desires. The Communist Party in China was started for just that reason. The Chinese wanted a change from what was going on in the country at the time. The student and worker protesters at Tiananmen Square wanted the same goal to be met. They wanted a dialogue to discuss the need for an adaptation, a change in the way things were being done in modern China. However, the bloody massacre at Tiananmen Square only exemplifies the point that the Communist Party, born out of revolution, would not allow another revolution to be born. In the book, Tiananmen Diary, Harrison Salisbury t ...
