Write a 7 page essay on Political and Social Events in Japan and China.
During the period of 1938, much of China was taken up by Japan and the government was weak. In places where the Japanese had formed territory, they appointed an acting official, making the society lose hopes on the government and the military. Militarization and war caused a lot of changes in the society and feeling of nationalism was being fueled by the events. The society began to feel that there was a need for a revolution. The formation of the nationalist party and the communist party caused changes in the views of the society and eventually led to the Republican era, which was a major change that was brought upon the society with the militarization and war. During the period that the Japanese took most parts of China, the society was subject to aggression and wished to come to terms with their powers and territory once again. Further, the establishment of the nationalist government which was hoped to bring rest to the society did not reach its goals and the attempt to rebuild China was falling apart. After the invasion of Japan, which ended in 1945, the communist party led to the communist era.
On the whole, we see that the society of China has undergone several changes and stages of confusion in terms of political and social development. Apart from the political and social unrest, the society also went through a great deal of stress with the disastrous famine that hit the society. On comparing the effect of militarization and war in China and Japan, we see that the differences are large. While Japan had a very strong army, the failure in the final stages, their hopes being shattered, the Chinese had a very weak military but finally had a peaceful environment to rebuild their nation. Japanese militarization and war had mixed effects on the society, bringing education and equality to them but finally was forced to forego their idea of being the ultimate power. China, on the other hand, had a society that was confused with the rule that they were subject to and war made the situation worse.
