Berkeley: University of California Press. As the Han Dynasty declined, many factors continued to pummel it into submission until China was left in a state of chaos.
By CE, philosophical activity slowed, and corruption ran rampant in the bureaucracy. Local landlords began to take control as the scholars neglected their duties, and this resulted in heavy taxation of the peasantry.
Taoists began to gain significant ground and protested the decline. They started to proclaim magical powers and promised to save China with them; the Taoist Yellow Turban Rebellion in led by rebels in yellow scarves failed but was able to weaken the government.
The aforementioned Huns combined with diseases killed up to half of the population and officially ended the Han dynasty by The ensuing period of chaos was so terrible it lasted for three centuries, where many weak regional rulers and dynasties failed to establish order in China.
This period of chaos and attempts at order is commonly known as that of the Six Dynasties.
The first part of this included the Three Kingdoms which started in and describes the brief and weak successor "dynasties" that followed the Han. In , the Jin dynasty of China was started and this soon split into two different empires in control of northwestern and southeastern China.
In , the conquest and abdication of those two dynasties resulted in the first of the Southern and Northern Dynasties. The Northern and Southern Dynasties passed through until finally, by , the Northern Zhou dynasty ruled the north and the Chen dynasty ruled the south.
Medieval[ edit ] During this period, the Eastern world empires continued to expand through trade, migration and conquests of neighboring areas. Gunpowder was widely used as early as the 11th century and they were using moveable type printing five hundred years before Gutenberg created his press. Marco Polo was not the first Westerner to travel to the Orient and return with amazing stories of this different culture, but his accounts published in the late 13th and early 14th centuries were the first to be widely read throughout Europe.That was one of the differences between that side and the Kuomintang side Ann Arbor: University of Michigan Press.
The bureaucracy was further improved with the introduction of an examination system that selected scholars of high merit. The first part of this included the Three Kingdoms which started in and describes the brief and weak successor "dynasties" that followed the Han.
