The Mongol Empire had created a single economic and cultural world system. In 13 century, the the Mongols had seized nearly the whole Eastern Europe, including now Russia, Ukraine, Romania, Bulgaria and Hungary. Scholars regard the Mongol conquest as one of the most deadliest invasions in human history. The Mongols also called the Tatars, which means Hell in Roman. Historian Brian Landers stated in his book that "The Mongols brought terror to Europe on a scale not seen again until the twentieth century."
Historians differ on what they think about the net result of the European arrival in the New World. Considering that the Columbian Exchange, which refers to “exchange of plants, animals, people, disease, and culture between Afro-Eurasia and the Americas after Columbus sailed to the Americas in 1492,” led to possibly tens of millions of deaths on the side of the American Indians, but also enabled agricultural and technological trade (Henretta et al. 42), I cannot help but reflect on whether the effects should be addressed as a historical or a moral question. The impact that European contact had on the indigenous populations of North America should be understood as a moral question because first, treating it as a historical question is difficult due to lack of reliable historical evidence; second, the meaning of compelling historical claims is contestable as the academic historian perspective tends to view the American Indian oral history as invalid; and finally, what happened to the native Indians is morally repulsive and must be discussed as such. The consequences of European contact should be answered as a moral question because historically, it is hard to be historically objective in the absence of valid and dependable historical evidence.
The Black Death shaped medieval Europe in almost every possible respect. It presented an opportunity for growth through adversity, or failure. While the plague slowed economic growth, it simultaneously managed to hasten the development of medicine, and encourage a culture of art and independent thought. Economically, it produced negative, non-progressive results by temporarily inflating living costs and slowing trade. The one positive and thankfully longstanding development in Europe’s economy was that the plague aided the collapse of the Feudal System.
How did European imperialism fundamentally alter East and Southeast Asian civilizations? European imperialism fundamentally altered civilization in China in various ways. To start, European imperialism started when Qianlong became the ruler of China. During his rule, Qianlong began to fall under the influence of destruction elements at court. There were corrupt officials and higher taxes which led to the big fall out and the Europeans conquering.
The European expansion into the Western Hemisphere in the 15th and 16th centuries was a great advance for human civilization. Three reasons was an advancement of the human race is that it laid the groundwork for changed politics, new economy and created views on other cultures. This is important because the expansion of the Europeans into the Western hemisphere was one of a kind at the time. The expansion brought new people, culture and ideas and that and this laid the groundwork for a new government.
Foreign imperialism impacted the Qing Dynasty significantly politically, economically, and socially, and also played a large role in the fall of the Qing Dynasty. The aftermath of the Opium Wars against Britain (and France) were arguably what forced China’s doors open to western influence, allowing foreign ideas to spread within China. From a political standpoint, the first and second Opium Wars dramatically altered the international relations between Qing China and the European powers. The end of the Opium Wars saw the Treaty of Nanjing and Tianjin signed, forcing the traditionally isolationist and inward Qing China to allow European powers in. China was demanded to surrender Hong Kong, open a total of fifteen treaty ports and allow foreigners to travel freely in the interior of China.
The negative effects of the Mongols The Mongols had more negative effects than positive effects on the world. The Mongols were cruel and vicious people. Through this cruelty then were able to invade and conquer more territories and expand their empires. The Silk Road was both negative and positive effect.
In the mid-eighteenth century, many European powers wanted to expand their influence to other parts of Europe and to the rest of the world and also to gain new territories. To accomplish this, they had to overcome many issues. They had to make alliances with the natives of the new land, cooperate in trade with other powers, overcome diplomatic negotiation, and lastly make peace agreements. The natives of the new land would play a key role in establishing European powers.
Imperialism is the point at which a homeland assumes control over a littler country or settlement for political, social, and/or monetary reasons. Imperialism has been a noteworthy power in forming the modern world. The impacts of Imperialism have been deciphered from an assortment of perspectives. This significant Imperialism happened amid the late 19th Century and mid 20th century. It had more negative impacts in the modern world today then beneficial impacts.
Positive effects of the Columbian Exchange was that it gave Europe and America new resources which in turn expanded their knowledge. The got new foods, animals, and materials they wouldn't otherwise have. The bad thing about the Columbian Exchange was that it spread disease between Europe and
Athens and China many appear very different, but I think they are more similar than they appear. In China since it there was a lot of power in the hands of the Emperor some people might expect that the citizens in China had little to do with the government. However like Athens the citizens did take part in the government. China still was supported and involved the people in the government like Athens. Document 2 states “Those who ruled are supported by those who are ruled.”
