1Andre’ E. PattersonAC0804752HS150 World Civilization IAssignment 08September 19, 2019This opus will examine major changes that have happened throughout China’s antiquity.Primary realms of discussion to be covered are the political structures, the social, and theeconomic life, of three dominant empires. The three previously mentioned empires namely are,The Sui dynasty 589-618, The Tang dynasty 618-907, and The Song dynasty 906-1127. Lastly,deliberations of each dynasty will be summarized in the interior of four pages.Accordingly, Connections: A World History, Volume 1 Ashworth College,reported thatYang Jian, who was an opportunist, set up his political structure through the maritalties of a northern emperor’s daughter. Later, he became the emperor’s advisor in the northernempire. Meanwhile, to further subjugate his political strategy, Yang and his wife bore an heir tothe northern empire. Whereby, after the death of the northern emperor, Yang vicariously claimedHeaven’s Mandate in 581 by repudiating his young son as rightful successor. Moreover, Yangsingle-handedly bolstered Buddhist support by advertising, “…and a well-planned river and landcampaign, he conquered one-by-one the several weak states that had survived in the south”(Connections: A World History, p. 312). Near 589, Yang Jian, also known as Wendi (Wund-DĒ),began a new empire named The Sui dynasty.The social life of the Sui was laced with a nationwide law code which reinstated the civilservice system started by Yang’s predecessors, Han rulers. Furthermore, Emperor Wendiresurrected a great city at Chang’an where his management of social life was mainly focused(Connections: World History). “By easing transport of troops and grain, the canal combined thenorth’s military might with the south’s agricultural prosperity, serving for centuries as a key
2conduit of Chinese power and wealth” (Connections: A World History, p. 312). Now onto theeconomic life of the Sui dynasty.
