What factors best explain the capacity of the Qingto establish a stable dynasty in China after they ousted the Ming from Beijingin 1644 & to remain militarily capable of rebuffing British overtures toopen China to augmented Sino-Western trade in 1793? Why did Western philosophe often laud China’sKangxi emperor for exemplifying the qualities of enlightened absolutism exercised by Europeanmonarchs like Prussia’s Frederick the Great, Russia’s Catherine the Great or byJoseph II of Austria? What aspects ofthe Qing structures failed China & allowed Western states like GreatBritain or France to extort concessions from the Qing during the 19th-century?
