History 108 (paper due tonight)
posted by Crystal .
What were the social economical and political changes brought on by the Ming and Qing Dynasties? I have a minimally descriptive online source and of course my book. I was wanting to know more about the reform that actually took place upon the ming and Qing dynasties.I know during the Yuan dynasty that the Mongols had control and done away with a lot of ancient Chinese customs including dress. They forbid mixed marriages (Mongols and chinese)and they were more of barbaric race than ancient chinese. Should I research more on pre- ming and Qing dynasties? How far should I go back?To classic imperial or early imperial or all the way back to ancient imperial rule to get the best information? what source should I use? I am currently using Traditions and encounters book and this link from my professor
Please help I am really stuck!
