ASIA AND THE EUROPEANS

Storyboard Text

  • THE DIVISION OF CHINA INTO SPHERES
  • BEFORE THEY TRADED OPIUM, THE BRITISH MERCHANTS BOUGHT CHINESE TEA, SILK, AND OTHER GOODS. BUT THERE WAS NO MARKET FOR BRITISH GOODS IN CHINA. THEY THEN STATRED SMUGGLING OPIUM.
  • THE OPIUM WARS
  • IN 1839, THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL SEIZED AN OPIUM CARGO SHIP AND DESTROYED IT .BRITIAN THEN DECLARED WAR ON THE CHINESE AND EASILY DEFEATED THEM. THE CHINESE PAYED HEAVY MONEY
  • SPHERES OF INFLUENCE
  • WE TRADED GOODS WITH THE EUROPEANS, LIKE OPIUM. THEY THEN PUT US NATIVES IN PRISON SINCE WE DESTROYED A SHIP CONTAINING OPIUM THAT THE EUROPEANS OWNED
  • THE OPIUM WARS IS HOW THE EUROPEANS AND THE FRENCH GAINED CONTROL OVER MANY PARTS OF CHINA
  • THE EUROPEANS WANT TO REACH US THE CHINESE BECAUSE WE HAVE A VAST ECONOMIC POTIENTIAL. YET THEY DID REACH THE QIN DYNASTY WHICH IS MORE TECHNILOGICALLY ADAVANCED THAN THE EUROPEANS.
  • ONCE THE BRITISH AND THE FRENCH CONQURED CHINA THEY THEN HAD TO GIVE UP HONG KONG. CHINA THEN LOST CONTROL OF THEIR SEA PORTS, AND THE CHINESE HAD NO RIGHTS AMONG THE EUROPEANS.
  • THESE REFORMS CONSISTED OF NEW SCHOOLS, COLLEGES, AND OFFICIALS WERE REMOVED FROM THE COURT.
  • THE MANCHU ONLY RESTORED THEIR POWER WITH THE HELP OF THE EUROPEANS. THIS MADE THEM MORE HATED BY THE CHINESE. SO EMPEROR GUANDXU MADE REFORMS.
  • TRADE GOODS WERE VIEWED AS A FORM OF TRIBUTE AND ALLOWED ENTRY IN LIMITED PORTS. TRADERS HAD NO DIPLOMATIC STANDINGS AS WELL SO THEY COULD BE EXECUTED WITHOUT RECOURSE.
  • THE EUROPEANS WERE NOT AS ADVANCED AS THE CHINESE WERE. SO THEY WANTED TO TAKE CONTROL OVER WHAT THEY HAD.
  • THE EUROPEAN PRESENCE WAS SOMEWHAT GOOD BECAUSE OF THE TAIPING REBELLION. 600 CITIES WERE RUINED AND AS 20 MILLION WERE KILLED. MUCH LAND WAS DESTROYED AS WELL. LAND CHINA COULD NOT AFFORD THIS DAMAGE.
