During the twentieth century the revolutions in China and Russia both experienced encounters with foreign influences and connections along with communist governments while their struggle to gain power greatly differed.
There were many things different and similar about the 1911 Revolution in China with the 1917 Revolution in Russia. The Chinese revolted in order to establish a democracy while the Russian Revolution was intended to create a communist nation. Also the people involved with the Chinese Revolution were a nationalist party but the people involved with the Russian Revolution were a part of the working class.
In 1911, the Chinese Nationalist party overthrew the Qing Dynasty, which was the last Dynasty of China. The goal of the Nationalists was to create a Democracy so the people of China would have more freedom. They also wanted to improve economic conditions by opening up world trade more so than what was already offered. This was similar to the Russian Revolution led by Lenin. Lenin promised land, money and food for all. The Russian people also just wanted more freedom and prosperity than they had under the Czars.
Since the goals of these two countries were the same the outcomes ended up being very similar. Once the Nationalist party overthrew the Qing Dynasty they set up a republic. Even though they succeeded, they faced opposition from the Communists in China. This led to a lengthy civil war which would not be resolved until after World War II. This differed from the Russians who immediately put Lenin in power of the U.S.S.R, and the opposition they did face was minimal. There was not a power struggle nearly to the same magnitude as the power struggle in China. In Comparison both countries ended up with Communist Governments after the Revolutions had taken place.
Overall, there were many more similarities than there were differences between the two Revolutions. Both started out wanting more freedoms and both ended up with Communist Governments....
