Mao Zedong was a former chairman of thepeople’s republic of China Mao Zedong was not a president he had got put onChina’s currency because of his leadership. The history of china goes so farback to ancient times the history of china makes china what it is today chinais very big on history. One thing that china is really known for is therefighting styles. The one style of fighting is Kung Fu the fighting style ofkung fu has come along way the style is very unique and hard to master it isalso a sport now that is worldwide.
The guy that really express the fightingstyle was Bruce Lee he made chinese way of fighting very interesting Bruce Leeinspired people across the world to martial arts he made a cool and fun thingto do.Bruce Lee plays a big part in china’s history as a martial arts master.Another key part to china’s history is the Xia Dynasty the Xia Dynasty was thefirst established dynasty of many and it was established in 2070 BC.
During theXia Dynasty they were a strong tribe and they were involved with a lot of warbefore their dynasty was passed on to the son of Day yu. Around the time of theShang dynasty during 1800 BC china was a empire back during this time and age.The Shang dynasty did not really consist of a government it was more like adictatorship because there dynasty consisted of a emperor and an empress.
During the reign of the Qin dynasty in 200 BC the emperor had managed to getmore power and a whole lot control. During the time of the Qin dynasty thegovernment changed from how the Shang dynasty had run their government. Insteadof letting the local leaders run the government Qin had sent out judges andgovernors that Qin thought he should send out governors and judges that hepicked. When the Han dynasty took over the new emperors started use interviewlike ways to choose governors and judges and they did not pick women aroundthis time time for nothing so they did not get the best judge or the bestgovernors for their government because therewere women that were good judges and possibly greater governors. When the Suidynasty was ruling in 600 AD the emperor’s required a systematic- census the reason for thecensus was to make sure that everyone was paying their taxes so that it could befair for everyone the Sui dynasty taxes were to pay to fight war ,and digcanals for their transportation and irrigation. T’ang dynasty the emperor’scontinued the census for the taxes but they also used the census so that theycould promote trade.
During the time that the shang dynasty ruled the Silk roadof Central Asia and around this time the Silk road became very important.The RepublicanRevolution of 1911, the leader was Sun-yat sen, had made the Quing dynasty cometo an abrupt end. The Republic of china could not established their governmentbecause there was so much war going on in china. The dynasty that reigned thelongest in china was the Zhou dynasty in reigned from 1046 BC to 256 BC thezhou dynasty play a big part because they were the longest reigning and that’sa big accomplishment in china’s history to be the longest reigning.
Anotherimportant event in china’s history is the Opium war the opium war was a warbetween china and britain. The reason the opium war started is because chinadid not want to trade or have anything to do with britain but britain tookthings into their own hands by startingto sell opium to the people of china and opium was an addictive drug that hadthe people of china addicted to it. China tried to tried to enforce some lawsbut that only made britain start a war with china a waging war only becausebritain believed in free trade. While the opium war was going it stared up theTaiping Rebellion during the time of this rebellion lots of people in chinadied on both sides. During the time of rebellion some people of china died fromstarvation and most died from combat during the Taiping rebellion.
The wayChina’s history is set up is very very unique there history fits well withthere culture China’s history had its ups and downs.China hasa lot of places that are ancient that people should visit in china.

In the chinese culture christmas is notcelebrated as much as people think christmas is celebrated in other countriesonly a small percentage a tiny percentage of chinese people are christians notto many people in china know about christmas especially the american way of theholiday and the tradition. China’s culture is also different when it comes tomarriage in the chinese culture of marriage they do a tea ceremony.

The way the tea ceremony is set up is that the bride and groom do iskneel on one knee in front of their parents and serve them tea and then thankthem which in that way they are thank their parents for their up bringing or inmost marriage ceremonies in china they switch and the bride thanks the groomfamily and the groom thanks the bride’s family.
