Chapter summaries-Forbidden City By William Bell?

Conflict In this story there are many conflicts that take place, I have chosen to cover what I think is the most important one. When Alex goes to China the country is fairly peaceful, his father is covering an important visit between the Rusian and Chinese Dignitaries, And Alex gets to go exploring for most of the time. Then when some students protest for no corruption in the government and more democracy things get ugly. thousands of Chinese people barricade Tian An men square, when the prime minister declairs martial law as the solution to a fairly peaceful protest. The protesters hold the soldiers off for a few days but eventually they start shooting on them. This is where the most suspence takes place in my oppinion. A huge riot follows over several days. This is a clear show of people against people conflict. There is also an underlying conflict because the soldiers who were sent there are all from different groups (divisions) who have different leaders, they wish to take charge as much as possible so that when the old leader of China dies they're leader may take his place.

What is the Forbidden City?

The Forbidden City was the seat of the Emporer of China, in Beijing, from 1420 to 1912. Nowadays, the Forbidden City, or the Palace Museum is open to tourists from home and abroad. Splendid painted decoration on these royal architectural wonders, the grand and deluxe halls, with their surprisingly magnificent treasures will certainly satisfy 'modern civilians.' Until 1924 when the last emperor in China was driven out of the Inner Court, 14 emperors of the Ming dynasty and 10 emperors of the Qing dynasty had reigned here. About 500 years being the Forbidden City, it houses numerous rare treasures and curiosities. It is now listed by the UN as World Cultural Heritage in 1987 and is the hottest tourist magnets. 1. The Forbidden City is also called the Imperial Palace in English, but it is most commonly known in Chinese as Gugong (means the "Former Palace"). Designated by the Chinese government as one of the country's foremost protected historical sites in 1961, it was officially renamed the "Palace Museum" (the name used by the R.O.C in 1924).

Why is the Forbidden City called the Forbidden City?

The Forbidden City is not actually a city at all, but the Imperial Palace complex in Beijing from which the Chinese emperors ruled their empire for centuries. It was called the Forbidden City because it was forbidden for commoners or even uninvited nobility to enter its sacred precincts.

The largest royal complex in the world, it was constructed over a fourteen year period, from 1407 to 1420, during the Ming Dynasty. It was the home and center of government for 24 emperors of China through the end of the Ming Dynasty and the entirety of the Qing (Ch'ing) Dynasty, until the overthrow of Imperial Rule in the early part of the Twentieth Century.

The Forbidden City is surrounded by a wall about 30 feet (10 meters) high, and a moat almost 20 feet (6 meters) deep. The walls encompass an area almost 8 million square feet, or 168 acres--about the size of 140 football fields. The complex houses 9,999 rooms; nine is considered a particularly propitious number in Chinese numerology.
