Qing China Tokugawa Japan and Joseon Korea - A Complete Overview

Made In History

The Giants of East Asia: Harmony and Chaos, goes over the Early Modern period of East Asia, focusing on Qing China and Tokugawa Japan, but we also take a look at Joseon Korea and Vietnam's Dai Viet.

We start off where our last megadocumentary left off, with the Ming is nearing its end. While meeting with the Jesuits brought cultural exchange, the Ming soon faced economic, social, and military problems as the Jurchen coalesced into a mighty power in Manchuria, and elevated themselves as a new dynasty, the Qing. After peasant rebellions brought the end of the Ming, the Qing entered and brought stability.

We next go over the influential early Qing rulers, Kangxi, Yongzheng, and Qianlong, and the annexation of Taiwan from Ming loyalists. We then go through the 4 DzungarQing Wars, which resulted in the Qing Empire seizing Mongolia, Tibet, and Xinjiang, to become one of the largest empires in history. After the White Lotus Rebellion, we then deal with culture and literature during the Late Ming and Early Qing and the empires early relations with Western powers, setting up the period of conflict which will come next series.

We then travel to Japan, which remained in the Sengoku Period. The go through the journey of Oda Nobunaga, and Toyotomi Hideyoshi, who ended the Sengoku and united Japan, and Tokugawa Ieyasu, who eventually set up the Tokogawa Shogunate, marking the beginning of the Edo Period, the most prosperous and long lasting in Feudal Japan. We take a look at literature and art styles as well in the new urbanized Japanese cities, all centered around Ukiyo, or the 'floating world'. We also touch on their interactions with Europeans, Christianity, and their Sakoku policy.

Joseon Korea is next, as we focus on the Imjin War and the defense of Admiral Yi SunSin and his famous turtle ships, and invasions by the Jurchen and Manchu.

In Vietnam, we pick up where we left off, and go through the rise of the Le Dynasty, the Mac Dynasty, the Trinh and Nguyen Lords, and finally the Tay Son Rebellion which leads us into the 1800s.

This is the 4th episode of our Early Modern series, which goes over the history of the world from roughly 1500 to 1800. The last episode dealt with the socalled Gunpowder Empires, the Ottomans, Safavid Iran, and Mughal India.

The Early Modern Series:
   • Phase 3: The Early Modern | World His...  

Welcome to Early Modern series of the World History Summarized project! The entire project is meant to summarize broad topics in history and balances political history and events, with social/daily life, and culture. If you've watched our History of the World documentary, the project is a perfect next step. The videos are standalone, but presented in a chronological fashion. This series "the Early Modern" takes place after our megadocumentaries "The Ancient World" and "The Medieval World". It will be divided into 5 videos about the Early Modern period (c. 1500 1800) all over the world, and will be called Phase 3. Once these 5 videos are completed, we will move onto Phase 4 of the project, but this series will be considered completed, and compiled into ONE MEGADOCUMENTARY containing all 5 parts.
