Two powerful Middle Eastern Islamic Empires of the 15th century included the Ottoman Empire and the Safavid Empire. Both the Ottomans and Safavid were powerful and they fought for that power and to conquer territory. Due to their geographical location, they benefited from trade between Europe and Asia. According to eCore Unit 1(n.d.), the Ottomans and the Safavid were both Muslims, though they differed in their Muslim beliefs. With the death of Muhammad (the founder and leader of Islam) in 632 AD, there was disagreement over who would be the Islamic leader.
The religion of Islam was influenced in the early 600s, trading was their way of spreading their ideas and inventions to be learned. The Islamic culture began to spread from Persia in the east to southern west Europe and the north of Africa. The Islamic culture influenced and impacted Europe in numerous ways, affecting such varied areas as medicine, literature, and technology. All these three categories show the influence and impact of Islam on Europe. The Islamic contributions have had a considerable effect on the development of Europe because in the old times Europe absorbed knowledge from Islamic civilizations.
This was accomplished through the Columbian Exchange, which is the network of migration and trade within the Atlantic Ocean. Next, European empires in the Americas as well as Russian, Chinese, Mughal, and Ottoman empires are different in their development because Europe had a greater impact on the native peoples that they integrated into their growing empires. When the Europeans arrived in the Americas, they brought a very tiny weapon with them. They brought disease. Small pox, measles, and malaria and just a few of the old world diseases that devastated native populations.
Imperialism was a major cause of WW1 because Britain, Germany and France needed foreign markets after the increase in manufacturing caused by the industrial Revolution (BBC, 2008). The three countries competed for economic expansion over the whole of Africa. This caused plenty of conflicts between France & Great Britain and between Germany on one side and France and Great Britain on the other side, almost precipitated a European war between the three nations. Sometimes colonies are acquired after a fully-fledged invasion or a fight against the local population. British control of South Africa was established after a series of campaigns and native tribes like the Zulus, followed by two magnificent wars with the Boers (farmers of Dutch extraction) (Quizlet, 2013).
The years 1975 and 1990 are especially useful for the investigation as they will display the main causes and the main effects that are related to the war. The causes and effects of the war are mainly political, socio-economic and religious. The main cause and spark of the Lebanese conflict was driven by political issues and complications within the government as well as the bordering countries’ complications. The Arab-Israeli conflict during 1970 to 1973 played a huge role in sparking the Lebanese conflict because the Israelis took control over the land which caused a huge influx of refugees to the surrounding countries, including Lebanon. Lebanon was home to more than 100,000 of the Muslim refugees and is still refuge to many to this day.
It is uncertain that every book of history gives the exact detailed facts and information about a specific subject which is the case for western travel narratives of Morocco. In the late nineteenth century, European empires such as Britain and France were colonizing countries of Asia and North African including Morocco. Moulay El-Hassan was the Sultan in the period between 1873 and 1894; he was intelligent and successful with enough political tactics to pacify the warring Moroccan races and to solve his country’s problems in order to release it from the domination of the French empire. In addition, Morocco knew many major historical events that led it to be an interesting subject to western explorers. Every traveller had a purpose to visit
This large scale and lengthy slave trade brought significant political, cultural, and economic change to the societies involved. To begin with, the Atlantic slave trade has had a substantial influence on American, European, and African politics. First, During the decline of the slave trade in the 19th century, there was a large push in Europe and America to ban slavery and end the Atlantic slave trade. Much of Europe quickly banned such practices in the early 1800s, but the road for reform was a much longer and more difficult in the USA. Most Northern states opposed slavery, while most Southern states favoured it.
The Sorko not only dominated the river regarding trade but also, regarding military power. Sonni Ali (Songhai’s first imperial king ) and his forces conquered Timbuktu in 1468 then making Songhai power in the region. "Songhai and to achieve control of the Trans-Saharan trade routes. As was the case with some earlier Malian leaders, Sonni Ali valued original forms of religious practice beside Islam" (Empires of medieval West Africa). Songhai thrived for many years till it fell into unstableness because of unsuccessful emperors.
In addition, the trade routes the Mongols opened up introduced Europeans to “Asian goods […] [,] and the ensuing European demand for these products eventually inspired the search for a sea route to Asia. Thus, it could be said that the Mongol invasions indirectly led to Europe’s “Age of Exploration” in the 15th century.” This left a major impact on the world, as Christopher Columbus discovered America inadvertently on a search for a sea route from Europe to Asia. The discovery of America was a major event in world history, and it only happened as it did because of the Mongols’ influence on the Age of Exploration. This shows that the Mongols’ reopening of trade routes influenced major world history events in a positive
