EASC 150g—Midterm Study Guide Key Terms 1. Differences between the Chinese and Japanese images or stereotypes that were shown in the TV episodes in class From the Simpson’s episode, the Japanese culture is shown to accept the humiliation or struggle of others as an acceptable form of entertainment, based on the game show the Simpson’s participate in on the show. This makes the Japanese culture seem insensitive to social ethics. Also from the Simpson’s episode and the south park episode, the Japanese are viewed as very simple-minded people. In the Simpson’s, the crowd is easily entertained by the game show despite the nature of it, and the seizure-robots cartoon on TV, show that the Japanese population are easily entertained by anything flashy or popular. In the south park episode, the Japanese fad “chinpoko mon” shows that the typical Japanese character is a follower rather than leader since once the product becomes popular or mainstream, everyone is determined to buy one in order to be cool or to fit in with everyone else around them. The Japanese are shown as Anti-American and Imperialistic in the south park episode because throughout the whole episode, the main goal of the Japanese government officials is to control the US and take over. In King of the Hill, Hank only thinks that there are two types of Asians, Chinese and Japanese. When his neighbor tells him that he is Laotian and Hank is unable to realize that there are more ethnicities within the Asian Race 2. The Soviet Model and the Maoist Model of Development (from Ogden) Soviet Model-Favored capital intensive industrialization. The CCP followed this model in the beginning Maoist model- Mao Zedong proposed a Chinese model of development known as the “Maoist Model,” which took account at China’s low level of development, poverty, and large population. The Great Leap Forward was his model of development. It was a scheme to rapidly accelerate the pace of industrialization. The Maoist model of “continuous revolution” was a rejection of the Soviet model of development. 3. Feudalism in Japan Four attributes of Feudalism 1. Closed social classes—no class mobility in Japan (could only change social status through adoption family determined social status) 2. Hierarchy/status structure of power is clearly defined a. Lowest in social class = merchants—could not own land; could only reinvest in business; merchants could never be landowners (landlords). Landlords were higher in rank than merchants. b. 1 st loyalty was to the hierarchy of the governmental social structure—the 2 nd loyalty was to the family 3. Identification w/each individual as responsible to some other individual above him in the hierarchy and related to others not in the hierarchical line because of his superiors relationships with them…For example…If A was lord over B and C and D was lord over E and F, then the relationship between F and C depends on the relationship between A and D. (If A and D were enemies, so were F and C due to their lords relationship)

    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.
