7 China: Cultivating the Land Click Red Stars to find more information. China is geographically divided into two parts. Outer China is a sparsely settled region of high mountains, plateaus, steppes, and deserts. Agricultural China is where 95% of the Chinese people live. Under Communist rule, China s agricultural land and farmers were organized in to collective farms in an attempt to increase agricultural production. Collective Farming Can China Feed Itself?

China United States 9,596,960 Square area 9,629,091 Square area 1,284,303,705 Population 280,562,489 Population The population of China is more that one billion people, the largest national group in the world. Two-thirds of the Chinese people are farmers, but only 4% of China s land can be cultivated. In an effort to balance the relationship between land and people, China adopted a one-couple, one-child policy in the 1980 s. US Agricultural Production

9 China: Ruling the People Rulers of the Middle Kingdom Voyage Through the Dynasties Dynasties: Ancient China was governed by a ruling class of warrior nobles headed by a king. Ruling families are referred to as dynasties. The Shang Dynasty (1766 BC) was the first verifiable dynasty and ruled China for 600 years. The Shang dynasty was overthrown by Zhou who established a dynasty and introduced the idea of the Mandate of Heaven. The Han dynasty centralized the Chinese government and established a bureaucracy which included eighteen different ranks of civil service jobs that civilians obtained by taking competitive examinations The Republic of China was established under the leadership of Sun Yat-sen The Republic of China moved to the island of Taiwan 1949 The People s Republic of China came to power under the Communist leader Mao Zedong. History of China

10 China: Philosophy and Religion Analects Confucius was addressed as The Master all over China. His teachings were based on virtue and goodness. Confucius believed that the past tells us how to live in the present. His sayings were recorded in a book called The Analects. Other Chinese philosophies include Taoism ( Daoism) and Legalism Buddhism spread to China from India.

11 China: Development of Writing Oracle Bones The earliest examples of Chinese writing are found on oracle bones. Shang dynasty rulers consulted the gods through the use of oracle bones, animal bones and tortoise shells on which priests scratched questions for the gods. The priest applied a hot poker to the bones which cracked and then interpreted the cracks to see how the gods answered the question. Chinese Writing Read a Chinese newspaper. Write your name in Chinese. The Chinese writing system is not alphabetic like English. It used symbols for words called characters. Each character stands for an idea, not a sound. The characters are read vertically in columns (down and up). The written language is not linked to the spoken language, so people all over China could learn the same system of writing, even if they spoke different languages.

12 China: Technology Bronze During the Shang dynasty, Chinese artisans learned to make beautiful objects from bronze to be used in religious ceremonies. Ancient Chinese Inventions Silk Silk cloth was made by drawing the fine threads from the cocoon of a silkworm, spinning the fiber into yarn, and weaving them into fabric. Iron Ancient Chinese learned how to build blast furnaces that allowed them to produce cast iron used for weapons and agricultural tools such as the mold board plow.

13 China: Taiwan, Another Chinese Country Taiwan's 400 Years of History The island of Taiwan is located about one hundred and twenty five miles off the southern coast of China. Around 1590, Dutch navigator Jan Huygen van Linschoten called the island "Ilha Formosa" or beautiful island. For the next four centuries the island was called Formosa. Republic of China Era Used by permission of The General Libraries, The University of Texas at Austin. Joint Typhoon Warning Center During the summer months, Taiwan is struck by typhoons, huge tropical storms with high winds. After the Communist regime under Mao Zedong, took over mainland China in 1949, Nationalist Chinese government led by Chiang Kai-shek fled to Taiwan which is called The Republic of China. Check the weather in Taipei, capital of Taiwan.

14 China: Economic Development After the death of Mao Zedong in 1976, China adopted a plan of modernization, The Four Modernizations. Under the new leadership of Deng Xiaoping, China wanted to improve agricultural production, update and expand industry, modernize its army, and import foreign science and technology. Four Modernizations At the 16 th National Congress of the Communist Party, the National People's Congress of China elected President Hu Jintao to succeed President Jiang Zemin.
