After the opium war,
Before the opium war, the feudal rule of the qing dynasty had been decayed, and there were many crises. And Britain is the most powerful capitalist country in the world. But British goods do not sell well in China because of the country's self-sufficient natural economy
It also has a strong resistance to foreign goods. In order to change this situation, British colonialists sold opium to China in large quantities. The opium trade corroded the heart of the Chinese bureaucracy and destroyed the decay of the citadel of the patriarchal system
It was smuggled into the empire with opium crates from English barges moored at whampoa.
In the first month of the 19th year of daoguang (March 1839), Lin zexu arrived in guang
The first opium war
The first opium war (2)
The state, and seriously expressed the determination to ban smoking: "if the opium is not a day away, this minister is not a day back, oath with this matter from beginning to end, no reason to stop."  from 22 April to 13 May (3 June to 25 June),
All the seized opium was destroyed in public at humen beach. The elimination of smoking in humen has defeated the arrogance of foreign aggressors, inspired the morale of the Chinese people, and demonstrated to the whole world the determination of the Chinese people to safeguard national dignity and resist foreign aggression.
After humen, Britain began to wage war of aggression against China. The opium war lasted more than two years from the beginning of daoguang in May of the 20th year (June 1840) to the end of July of the 22nd year (August 1842). 1842
In August, the British invaders forced the qing government to sign the first unequal treaty in modern China, the Sino-British treaty of Nanking. The next year, Britain forced the qing government to sign an annex to the treaty of Nanking. The opium war had just ended
Under the threat of force, the United States and France forced the qing government to sign the unequal treaty of wangsha and the treaty of whampoa with China respectively, which expanded the rights and interests of aggression.
The signing of the treaty of nanjing undermined China's territorial integrity, jurisdiction, customs and other sovereignty, and set a precedent for the legalization of plunder and slavery in the form of treaties
. From then on, the contradiction between the Chinese nation and imperialism, and between the masses and feudalism became the principal contradiction in Chinese society, and anti-imperialism and anti-feudalism became the dual historical task of the struggle of the modern Chinese people. Chinese history has entered the old democracy
The period of the revolution. 
The taiping rebellion
In the opium war, the qing government spent a large amount of military expenditure, which greatly increased the burden on the people. After that, the great taiping rebellion led by hong xiuquan broke out.
In 1853, the taiping army occupied nanjing, determined the capital here and renamed it tianjing, and the taiping heavenly kingdom issued the tian mu system, and sent two armies to the north and the west. Later, the xiang army made a mad counter-attack, and the taiping army lost again and again
. In 1856, shi dakai commanded the western army to defeat the xiang army, and the taiping heavenly kingdom entered its military heyday.  when the taiping heavenly kingdom won a great military victory, there was a sharp internal turmoil among the leaders.
In 1859, hong rengan compiled the new chapter of mentor, which mainly included: developing industry and commerce and rewarding scientific and technological inventions; Open new schools; Learn from the west, rule by law, etc. It is the first time advanced Chinese put forward to develop capital in China
The idea of the doctrine, but because of the situation did not realize.
In June 1864, hong xiuquan died of illness. In July, the xiang army rushed into the city of tianjing, and tianjing fell. The vigorous taiping heavenly kingdom movement failed due to the joint execution of Chinese and foreign reactionary forces.
The taiping heavenly kingdom persisted in fighting for 14 years and developed its power to 18 provinces. It was a great anti-feudal and anti-aggression peasant movement in modern Chinese history. It established the regime and promulgated the tian mu system, which dealt a heavy blow to the Chinese and foreign reactionaries
Power is the culmination of thousands of years of peasant warfare in China. 
The formation of a semi-feudal and semi-colonial society
The second opium war
In 1856, Britain and France launched the second opium war on the pretext of renewing the treaty. In 1858, Russia, the United States, Britain and France forced the qing government to sign the treaty of tianjin. Late in October 1860, the British and French forces again
The qing government signed the Beijing treaty between China, Britain and France.
At the beginning of the 10th year of xianfeng (1860), Britain and France appointed Elgin and glover as plenitiers respectively, and led their fleets to China to launch another war of aggression. In June (July), British and French troops arrived outside the mouth of dagu. Emperor xianfeng led a group of officials
He fled to rehe (now chengde city, hebei province) and ordered his brother prince yi to stay in Beijing and take charge of the peace talks. On August 22 (October 6), British and French troops seized the old Summer Palace, which had been operated by the qing court for more than 150 years. Was washed by the anglo-french army
After the robbery, it was set on fire. The fire burned for three days and the old Summer Palace, known as the "garden of ten thousand gardens", was reduced to piles of rubble. C.g. Gordon, the British colonialist who took part in the looting, admitted: "we were
In the most barbaric way, it destroyed the most precious treasure in the world. "
After the second opium war and the signing of the unequal treaties of tianjin and Beijing, the Chinese territory was further looted, and the foreign invaders further grabbed a large number of rights and interests from China, thus intensifying their political campaign against China
Control and economic and cultural aggression. The capitalist countries directly exerted pressure on the qing court through their ministers and manipulated and controlled China's internal affairs and diplomacy. The expansion of a large number of commercial ports extended from the southeast coast to seven coastal provinces and the Yangtze river
Swim, make foreign capitalism invades more deeply again. The foreign invaders also managed the Chinese customs directly and strengthened their control over the qing court financially, thus facilitating the expansion of their political influence. China's loss of sovereignty has deepened
The extent of China's semi-colonization.
Tsarist Russia occupied Chinese territory
Russia has long had territorial ambitions for China. After the opium war, it intensified its armed invasion of China's heilongjiang valley. On April 16, 2008 (May 28, 1858), half a month before the signing of the sino-russian treaty of tianjin,
The unequal aigun treaty was forced upon the amur general yi shan by force. According to this treaty, Russia seceded south of the outer khingan mountains, black

Some 400,000 square kilometers of territory was ceded to the east, creating a basis for ceding China's western territory.
In may of the 11th year of xianfeng (June 1861), China and Russia signed the eastern boundary treaty of the prospecting division. In fact, this survey only demarcated the land boundary to the south of the xingkai lake, and did not demarcate the water boundary of the ussuri river and heilongjiang river. From the word yuan
From may, 1862 (June, 1862), Ming yi, minister of the qing court's demarcation, and Russian plenipotentiary representatives babkov and zakharov, etc., began negotiations on the demarcation of the northwest frontier at tarbahatai (now tachengcheng, xinjiang province). Adoption of the sino-russian treaty of Beijing
Russia dictated the direction of the western section of the sino-russian border, designating the permanent residence of kalen, located near the towns within the territory of the qing dynasty, as the demarcation mark, and the inner lakes of China, zhai sambo and temur turnur (lake issek in present-day kyrgyzstan) as the boundary
Lake. Then Russia invaded the region, creating a fait accompli. It was not until September of the third year of tongzhi (October 1864) that negotiations between China and Russia resumed in tajikistan. The qing court succumbed to the threat of force from Russia, which forced mingyi to back down and accept Russia
The discussion list. On the seventh day of September (7th October), mingyi and babkov signed the china-russia northwest boundary treaty of exploration and demarcation, which delimits the western section of china-russia boundary from the shabindabaha pass to the border of haohan.
In the second opium war, Russia occupied more than 1.44 million square kilometers of Chinese territory through the unequal aigun treaty, the treaty of Beijing, and a series of demarcation treaties. 
Political changes in the qing dynasty
Since the treaty of tianjin stipulated that foreign ministers should be stationed in Beijing, it was inevitable for the qing court to establish formal diplomatic relations with the western capitalist powers. In December of the 10th year of xianfeng (January 1861), the qing government established the yamen of the prime minister for state affairs.
The yamen of the premier was in charge of foreign affairs, trade, customs duties, construction of railways, mining and manufacture of guns, guns and ammunition.

Introduce advanced modern technology from western countries to strengthen ourselves. The westernization movement, with its slogan of "self-strengthening", failed to put China on the road to prosperity, and later became a banner of "seeking wealth" due to financial losses. But it hurts objectively
It stimulates the emergence and development of Chinese capitalism and opens up a road for the modernization of Chinese capitalism. The expansion of foreign economic power also played a certain role in resisting.
