Chinese history can be divided into periods ruled by dynasties, or ruling families. China was first unified under an emperor in the 3rd century BCE. Emperors tried several ways of finding qualified people to administer their government. The choices were to rely on the class of wealthy families or to choose officials for their merit.

During the Han Dynasty, candidates for government jobs had to prove their knowledge and ability by passing strict tests. As a result, a class of scholar-officials evolved. Under later emperors, this system developed into a rule by officials of proven merit. In the 13th century, the Mongols built a great empire.

From ancient times, Chinese rulers based their right to govern on the Mandate of Heaven. According to this idea, heaven had chosen a particular dynasty to rule. The Chinese believed that heaven supported the dynasty for as long as an emperor ruled well. Natural disasters such as floods, famines, plagues, and earthquakes were taken as signs that heaven was displeased. If an emperor ruled badly and lost the Mandate of Heaven, the people could overthrow him.

The presentation covers the following:
