Tianxia : Fairbank’s Definition T’ien-hsia , ‘all-under-heaven,’ presided over by T’ien-tzu, the ‘Son of Heaven,’ sometimes was used to embrace the whole world including everything outside of China (Chung-kuo, ‘the Central States,’ the Middle Kingdom); but in common usage it was taken to designate the Chinese empire , which in any case included most of the known world.” Fairbank, 1968

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
