02_Ch.19- China Limits European Contact

Published by Anthony Valentin
While Europe was recovering from the calamity of the plague, breaking the bonds of feudalism, and nurturing a mercantile spirit, China was attempting to revive an economy devastated by decades-long war. China flexed its 'economic, political, cultural, and technological muscle' in and out of its region. Very few were China's equal in these areas and the emperors of the Ming dynasty formulated policy that reflected such a view. However, as later emperors became entrenched and self assured, the mid- 15th Century witnessed the end of this short-lived, but awesome, display of Chinese global presence. A world view evolved based on Confucian principles that failed to capitalize on this opportunity as nations today would. Others aspire to, and will, enter the "world scene" if China will not.
