© HarperCollins Publishers 2010 Chronology – sense of period Britain 1919 In 1919, Britain was a great power – it had a huge Empire, which included Australia and South Africa. The navy was the most powerful in the world. The first secretary of the League of Nations was British. Britain had been the first country to industrialise.
© HarperCollins Publishers 2010 Chronology – sense of period China 1919 In 1919, China was not a great power. It no longer had an empire. It was largely a rural, subsistence economy. Some people looked to communism as a way to organise their country. Foreign countries controlled parts of China, eg Britain in Hong Kong and Portugal in Macau.
© HarperCollins Publishers 2010 Chronology – sense of period Britain today The British Empire was dismantled in the 20th century. Countries such as India and South Africa gained their independence. The Empire was replaced with an organisation, headed by the Queen, called the Commonwealth. Britain is a nuclear power. The British armed services serve in conflicts across the world and Britain is part of NATO (the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation), a military alliance based on Western Europe and North America.
© HarperCollins Publishers 2010 Chronology – sense of period China today China expanded in the second half of the 20th century. This was as a result of military intervention in Tibet, and by the return of territories such as Hong Kong and Macau from Western powers. China is ruled by a Communist government. It is a nuclear power, a member of the United Nations and is also one of the five powers with permanent seats on the Security Council. The Chinese economy rapidly industrialised in the second half of the 20th century and is now one of the three wealthiest countries in the world. China is home to more than one billion of the world’s population.
© HarperCollins Publishers 2010 Chronology – sense of period What makes a great power? By the 21st century, Britain and China had seemingly swapped places. China is now of the three wealthiest countries in the world and is home to more than one billion of the world’s population. Britain no longer has an empire and has lost much of its manufacturing basis, being more reliant on other industries such as banking.
