History's most effective anti-intellectual was Shih Huang Ti. He rose to the throne of the small state of Ch'in at the age of 12 and waged constant warfare for 20 years until he had unified the countless squabbling states of China into a single nation, the effort costing some 1,500,000 lives. He became China's first emperor and turned his attention to the problems of administration. He standardized the written language, devised a harsh penal code, built long straight roads, and began constructing the Great Wall of China.
