Genghis Khan ambles through the streets of peaceful Karakorum, greeting all his steadfast warriors. Among the Mongols are thousands of Chinese, Russians, Polish, Hungarians, and many more flooding the streets. Ordinarily, all of these people are going somewhere: to the glorious temples, the bustling markets, or to the distinguished Genghis Khan walking through his empire. The Mongol Empire, built with Genghis 's own blood, sweat, and unyielding perseverance, was what he dreamed the world could be, what he believed it would be. Genghis Khan led the Mongols not just to victory but assisted in the development of our world today. Moreover, the Mongols were a civilized nation because of the peaceful reign called Pax Mongolica, Khan 's religious tolerance, and their ingenious
The Mongols were savages not ceasing at any expense to conquer land. The Mongols had distinctive war strategies to corner their enemies, conquer them, and slaughter them. Despite the fact that the Mongols did much damage, they refine the nations they prevailed. Even in a Mongols' personal life there are numerous guidelines that should be obeyed. In spite of the fact that the Mongols may appear to be merciless murderers there is another side them.
When China was invaded by the Mongols in 1276 C.E. I, a Chinese Confucian scholar, was fascinated with the Mongols endeavor to ingratiate themselves into Confucian China. They adopted many of the policies and rituals that Confucianist pursed. The Mongols also demonstrated the five relationships by displaying the capability and power of their ruler compared to the capability and power of a subject. I believe that Genghis Khan and his descendants are not guilty of genocide and crimes against humanity because they pursued to flatter the people who followed Confucianism, adopted many of their traditions, and spread the Confucian philosophy throughout their
DBQ: The Mongols: How Barbaric were the “Barbarians”? Throughout history, the term “barbarian” has been used to refer to groups of “uncivilized” people with savage and evil qualities. What it essentially means is foreigners. A specific group of people called “barbaric” are the Mongols, a small tribe from central asian grasslands who during the 13th century, conquered much of the known world.
In the 13th century in central Asia lived the Mongolians. The Mongols were very fierce warriors of that time. This lasted from the 13th century through the 14th century. They were unliked by other civilizations, that is why they were also called the “barbarians”. These barbarians were like savages, they destroyed things and they would slaughter people too.
Being savagely cruel and exceedingly brutal is called being barbaric. In the 13th century, Mongols had experienced many places around the Silkroad. Like the following Mongolia, China, and Persia. Mongols originate from Mongolia from there they expand their territory outward. Which leads to the following statement the Mongols were simply looking for wealth not to just be savage to the neighboring civilizations.
In Rowe’s monograph, he explores and challenges the existing approaches to the Qing empire, from the orthodox interpretation fuelled by John K. Fairbanks to the three revisionist turns that emerged, and, in doing so, successfully achieves a balance between historiography and history. Rowe’s work is markedly revisionist, exploring the continuity and challenges behind the changes; socially, economically and politically, in the 19th and early 20th centuries, as opposed to the orthodox view of seeing China as a
Telling the story of 1587, Huang displays the year in a similar fashion to Sima Qian’s The First Emperor. Like Sima Qian, this telling of history focuses on one specific character for each chapter. It is chronological for each chapter, but each chapter overlaps, in part, with the ones before and following it in a more cyclical format. This means that this book has less of a western and, therefore,

The Mongol impact on the 13th and 14th century world affected many people and civilization which helped prove that they were not the savage and evil barbarians that people thought they were; but instead the Mongols were the reason that the Mongol empire thrived as seen through their culture, battle, and travelers.

Marco Polo became Europe’s primary source of information about China until the 19th century, and even since then people did not completely believe his stories as he did not write it himself, they are of no value as sources of what he observed on his travels. Many doubt Polo going to China as his stories do not mention for example the Great Wall, and many other advances during his time there and even before he reached there. Although Polo’s credit of being in China is believed to have been due to one of the things he had brought back such as printing and explosive
Although Qin Shi Huang-Di is sometimes seen as a fantastic leader and unifier, he was also paranoid, oppressive, and tyrannical. For example, he was constantly worried about people who opposed him and about keeping control of his country. When Confucian scholars talked behind his back or criticized him because his administration was built on Legalism, he decided to get rid of them and ordered the arrest and execution of over 400 scholars (Gracie). This dislike of opposition and debate has carried over to the communist party of China today, showing just how much of Qin’s legacy has lasted. Along with the arrest of the scholars, he also used other means to end intellectual opposition.

During the thirteenth century much of the known world was conquered by people from a small tribe in Central Asia. These people became known as the mongols. They operated on the backs of horses and even used siege weapons. Some of the people that came across the MOngols called the barbarians. These were people that were savage and evil. The reason for this is because the Mongols were taking over the land of all the people unexpectedly. They were looting and pillaging anywhere that they could and they didn't care who they ended up hurting. When they went into battle the Mongol army would also rape the women that they found in the certain villages that they went to. Even with all this happening they still managed to do certain things that are
