China vs. British


Europe s story what was going on in britain

Europe’s Story:What was going on in Britain

Problem for Britain was that their trade with China was unbalanced, or rather, unfair for Britain; Britain bought a lot of Chinese products, like silk, tea, and porcelain, while China only bought a little cotton.

Britain came up with an idea: Smuggle opium into China.

Opium Smuggling was successful; Britain was able to smuggle 8 million pounds of opium into China.

By 1835, as many as 12 million Chinese people were addicted to the drug.


What was going on in china in the 19 th century

What was going on in Chinain the 19th Century?

China was known for its trading route, Silk Road, and many countries, especially Britain, wanted to take control over China.

Problem for Britain was that while they trade with China, China felt they don’t need foreign products and stopped trading for Britain’s products but sold Chinese products, like silk, tea, porcelain, etc.

Britain came up with an idea: Sell opium.


China s self sufficiency

China’s Self-Sufficiency

China was very wealthy under the rule of Qing’s dynasty.

They had rice, mining and manufacturing industries, salt, tin, silver, iron, silks, cottons and porcelain.

Because of these various products, Chinese were very independent and had little interest in trading with the West.

They only allowed one port, Guangzhou, to trade with the foreigners.


The opium war

The Opium War

Opium - an addictive narcotic extracted from seed capsules of the opium poppy

Opium was used as medical use in China, and because of the knowledge of its danger, Chinese govt. banned the use of opium.

However, opium is very addictive, and later there were a great demand on more opium.

By 1835, as many as 12 million Chinese people were addicted to the drug.

The War itself took place mostly at sea.

But China’s ships were no match for British steam-powered ships and was defeated.

The result was that on 1842, they signed a peace treaty.

America’s Story:Japan’s Isolation

In the early 17th century, Japan isolated themselves from the outside contacts.

In the early 19th century, the Europeans suggested that Japanese end their isolation and start a trade. However, Japanese refused to open up.

Finally, when Matthew Perry, an U.S. Commodore, appeared in the Tokyo Harbor with four ships with cannons, rifles and steam coming out of the ship (they scared the Japanese!)

Perry was accepted to meet the shogun and came back to U.S. with a peace treaty.

But they continued to trade with Korea, China and Dutch.

In the early 19th century, the Europeans talked to the Japanese to end their isolation and trade. However, Japanese refused to open up, like China.

Matthew Perry: The End of Japan’s Isolation

In 1853, Matthew Perry, an U.S. Commodore, appeared in the Tokyo Harbor with four ships which scared the shogun because of the cannons, rifles and steam coming out of the ship.

Perry was accepted to meet the shogun and came back to U.S. with a peace treaty.

He was the hero who ended Japan’s Isolation


The treaty of kanagawa

Japanese were forced to sign the Treaty of Kanagawa, a peace treaty.
