Document Summary

China closed trade with britain; however, britain wanted tea from china. As a result, britain started smuggling and trading opium in exchange for tea. Qing dynasty bought military hardware from britain and germany. Chinese have philosophy of staying out from quarrel/unfortunate situations: tend to ignore unfortunate situations/occurrences, due to fear of getting involved in legal suits, ex. When they see an elderly woman falls, they may call police but not will not go in to help themselves. Firth elder ma = head of a big gang: has more authority than erdezi. Wealthy chinese men saw how china was being manipulated by the foreigners: how the chinese were buying foreign goods rather than local goods. This was making china a feudal weak society: so they wanted to set up factories, thought is countries economy is strong other problems will be solved. The fact that a eunuch is trying to get a wife is a sign that society is changing.
