Yong Le also sent a series of naval voyages into Indian Ocean. Led by Zheng He –he brought great profit to China.First Contacts with the West1514, The Portuguese fleet arrived off the coast of China. They were the first direct contact between the Chinese and Europe since Marco Polo. China was at it’s height of power. Emperors believed Europeans were barbaric. Portugal soon outraged the Chinese and was expelled from Guangzhou and now could only trade at the port of Macao. There was a good exchange of ideas between the 2 nations. Christian missionaries had also make long voyage to China. Chinese scholars were able to read better with European eyeglasses. Europeans were impressed with Confucius teachings.Zheng HeMongol dynasty is overthrown in 1368Ming dynasty lasts until 1644Ming Hong Wu is first leaderUnder Ming emperorsthe dynasty expands to include ( Mongolia, central Asia, and Mongolia)Strengthened the great wall to the north and made peace with northern nomadic tribes.GovernmentCentralizedOfficials picked by civil service examSet up a nationwide school systemManufactured goods in high numbersNew crops – larger crops renovated Grand canal- ship grain south to northThe voyages of Zheng HeAfter Ming Hong Wu son Yong Lee became emperorMonuments to self to show powerStrengthen great wallRestore Chinese Authority over VietnamBegins Construction of Forbidden (Imperial) city in BeijingCreated to show power and prestigeBecame capitalHome of Emperors for 500 yrsVoyages to India and east Africa brought back untold goods and knowledgeLed by Zheng HeGiraffes were put in the imperial zooEnormous profitsTraditional officials of the Confucian beliefs became alarmedFelt trade was unworthy andYong lee’s death the voyages will be halted never to start again.When he died he was buried with his wife and 16 concubinesFirst contacts with the westPortuguese are the first to have actual contact with the Chinese by sea since the travels of Marco polo over land.China was height of power during this Ming DynastyViewed everyone else as china’s little brother ( Chinese leaders were called sons of Heaven)Viewed Europeans as unusual and BarbaricThey were expelled from Guangxhou because of behaviorAllowed to occupy Macao-port city in southeastern chinaTrade was not increase between the Chinese and Portuguese, but the exchange of ideas did.Christian missionaries –Jesuits- educated-brought new technologies-clocks- made china more excepting of western ideasJesuits wrote back to europe about what they saw and the beliefs of the people which intrigue EuropeansEyeglasses were introduced to china
5 The Ming Dynasty 3. Fall of Ming Dynasty In the late 16th century, internal struggles began. Followed by government corruption. In the 1630’s, a major epidemic reduced the population.Weak rulers, peasant unrest, and poor crop yields, contributed to the downfall of the Ming dynasty.Overthrow of the Ming led to Manchus, farm people from Manchuria, who created a new dynasty called Qing (Pure) Dynasty created in 1644 and remained in power until 1911.After all the great territory and trade advancements the Ming dynasty began to fall into decline like all other great empiresInternal power struggles developedGroups worked to make someone of their own emperorWeak rulers who were overpoweredChildren were often put on the throne who could be easily be manipulatedLed to times of high corruption and taxesPeasant unrestLow crop production because of bad unfavorable weather.EpidemicReduce human lifeNoted the buzzing of flies was all you heard instead of human life.Led to peasant revoltLed by Li ZichengInvasion of capital BeijingLast Ming Emperor hangs himself in palace gardensManchus from Manchuria in the north invade Beijing and put down Li Zichengs armyCreated the Qing (pure) dynasty
6 Kangxi The Qing Dynasty Some people resisted new rule; the Manchus prepared to attack the island of Taiwan. To identify rebels, Manchu troops ordered all males shaved their forehead and braid their hair into a pigtail called a Queue. Manchu fighting units were called banners. “Bannermen” were the chief fighting force of the empire, had separate units. Were gradually accepted as rulers.1. Qing AdaptationsKept Ming political systems but Manchus were ethnically and culturally different. Deal with it in 2 ways:a) tried to preserves their distinct identity within Chinese society. Their nobility held large landholdings and received $ from treasury.b) dealt with the problem of ethnic difference by bringing Chinese into imperial administration, but Manchus held the higher posts. Sharing power did win them support from Chinese.2. Reign of KangxiStrongest emperor – Christian missionaries reached their height. Many Chinese converted. His successors began to suppress Christian activities.KangxiDuring the Qing Dynasty we will see how European influence on Chinese culture will lead to china closing its doors to the west.Empire lastSome Chinese rejected the Manchu rule and seized the island of TaiwanManchu government prepared to identify and attack the rebelsUse a mandated order of unified Manchu dress for malesHad to shave forehead and braid their hair into a pigtail “queue”Those who refused were seen as rebels and executed.Eventually the Manchu were excepted and the Qing dynasty flourishedCorrected social and economic illsQing AdoptionsKept Ming political system of officials chosen by civil service examQing were culturally different from the majority of their populationSolutionsTo protect distinct cultural identityOnly 2% of pop – ManchuDefined legally distinct from rest of chinaManchu nobilityLarge landholdingsRevenue from treasuryother ManchuOrganized into separate military unitsBanners – chief fighting force of the empireEthnic differencesBrought Chinese into the Manchu governmentRegular Chinese were 80% of lower postsHeld a much smaller amount of top positionsThis won much support of the ruler populasReign of KangxiReigned for 61 yearsHard worker dawn till nightPatron of the arts- gain support of artist and scholarsExcepted Christian missionaries and the conversion of noble and 300,000 ordinary pop to Christian faith.This ceased after his death and Christian activities were suppressed
7 The Qing Dynasty Europeans in China Qianlong expanded China to its greatest physical size, butalso the first signs of decayappeared.Why did this happen?The Emperor fell under theinfluence of destructive elements at court. Corrupt officials and higher taxes led to unrest. Population growth exerted pressure on land. Led to the White Lotus Rebellion(a peasant revolt) repressed but was expensive. Europe wanting more trade during this dynasty. Qing confined all European traders to a small island outside Guangzhou. Britain had an unfavorable trade balance with China, that is Britain imported more goods from China than it exported to the country.

11 Economy and Daily Life 1. Economic Changes First change for China was an increase in population. Causes – peace and stability, improvements in food supply. Population increase meant less land available for each family. Another change was a steady growth in manufacturing and increased trade between provinces. Did not develop the kind of commercial capitalism (private business based on profit) that was emerging in Europe.2. Society and role of WomenChinese society was organized around the family. All family members were expected to sacrifice their individual needs to benefit the family. Based on Confucian ideals. Extended family and clans as well.Women were considered inferior to men. Only males could have a formal education and pursue a career in government. Feature of Chinese society that restricted the mobility of women was the practice of foot binding. Bound feet were a status symbol. Were more marriageable.Economic changesduring the Ming and Qing dynasties , China’s pop grew and so did manufacturingRole of women remained restrictedArts and architecture flourished% of the population flourish agriculturallyChangesIncrease population 80 mil to 300 milPeace under Qing dynastyImprovements in food supplies because of a faster growing rice in southwest Asia that would have been transported north on the Great CanalIncrease pop led to land shortages and revoltTried to fix by limiting how much the land owning aristocracy could ownpeace led to a boost in manufacturingMore merchants with stable trade in in silk, porcelain, cotton goods, and other productsThey did not develop commercial capitalism) private business ownership (like us or Europe)Manufacturing and trade was under strict control of the government who looked down on trade and levied high taxes. This is the same as communist governmentsBecause of confusion principlesThe Confucian idea of profits was double-edged. On the one hand, Confucius' disciple,Mencius, made it abundantly clear that it was immoral of rulers to concentrate on profits for their respective states. On the other hand, merchants were socially useful because their risk-taking trading activities could supply the people's diverse needs.In a compromise, ethics was deeply incorporated into business activities. Consequently, it was insisted that merchants' behaviors be governed by the ethical principles, which held that righteousness outweighs profits and that collective benefits and spiritual values outweigh individual benefits and material values respectively.Society and roles of womenOrganized around familySupport all members needs – education, care of unwed daughters and the elderlyAll were expected to sacrifice for the well-being of all (Confucian ideals)Qing dynasty familyFour generations under one roofSons married they brought wives to live in family homeUnmarried daughters stayedParents and grandparents –elderly high regard care for by childrenToday china has less nursing homes than hereClanExtended familyDozen to hundred family membersLinked by elders and common social practices (Buddhism and Confucianism )Help for providing for poorer family membersMenPursue careers and formally educatedCould divorce if not sons producedCould take a second wifeProvide for family-even extendedWomenStrong family rolesSubordinate to menCould not divorce or inherit propertyFoot bindingStatus symbolNot if you worked in a fieldVideo 1:22min
