World History 1600-1650 The world has been in a huge number of wars. Wars could be deadly. Between the years of 1600-1650 , there were a lot of wars, religious conflicts and science developments. One of the most famous wars in this time was the war which started in 1600 and lasted around 30 years and it´s called ¨The Thirty Years War¨. The thirty years war was a series of brutal , bloody , and a very deadly wars that took place mostly in Central Europe and it is seen as one of longest and most destructive conflicts in European history.
In the mid-late 1800’s New Empires started to gain power and grew dramatically. The new and upcoming empires were, Japan, United States of America, and Germany. These countries had been slowly gaining power for their entire existence, but were never considered world powers. Well that all changed towards the early 1900’s, these countries were emerging and became leaders of the worlds.
Lane, Kris E. Pillaging the Empire: Piracy in the Americas 1500-1750 (M.E. Sharpe Inc., 1998). Kris E. Lane’s Pillaging the Empire: Piracy in the Americas 1500- 1750 focuses on Spain and Portugal’s encounters with pirates in the Americas during the early modern era. Lane diverges from traditional history on piracy through his attempt to place pirates in a world-historical perspective and he emphasizes how pirates were motivated by their desire for money rather than patriotic motives. Lane is a professor of Colonial Latin American History at Tulane University. The purpose of Pillaging the Empire is to provide a chronological survey of piracy in the Americas and introduce maritime predation in Spain’s colonial holdings between 1500 and1750.
Over the past few months, business has been stable throughout the colonies. The leading occupation in these colonies is farming. Although farmers produced a lot of crops, their income was dependent on the value and quality of the crop itself. Agriculture plays a vital role in American economy, and there is evidently some strengths and weaknesses in this business.
European monarchies came to dominate early modern Europe in the 15th through 18th century. Monarchies ruled many different nations: Spain, France, England, Austria, Prussia, and Russia. Although the abstract governmental structures were similar, each nation had unique elements that separated their monarchy from the rest. Thus, the European monarchies differed from each other in three distinct facets: political, geographical, and economic traits.
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.
During the Modern Era, Western Europe, Russia, East and South Asia were expanding across not only land but an ocean away from their homeland. Each empire had different reasons for their expansion. Western Europe, Russia, East and South Asia had common motives for expansion, including geography and economy. Western Europeans had several motives for expanding their empires to the Americas including competition, and wanting to legitimize their power. Eurasian empires were competing to gain the Americas but since Western Europe was geographically the closest, they had the biggest advantages.
Feudalism was a social, political, and economic system that tyrannized all conditions of medieval life. Despite what many might think, the European and Japanese feudal systems is well known across hundreds of nations all over the world. This includes the political, economic, and social order. The economic fraction of feudalism was centered around the lord 's estates or manor.
The Middle Ages were an extremely large part of history and were made possible by the governmental system of feudalism. Feudalism was the hierarchical governmental system of obligations in the Middle Ages. Manorialism, supported by feudalism, was the economic system of land ownership in the Middle Ages. The bailiff played an important part in keeping feudalism, manorialism, and therefore the Middle Ages alive. Feudalism was an extremely influential part of the Middle Ages and was supported by the bailiff.
Gunpowder empire are very similar and complex in the same way. They grew empires and provided empires with deadly weapons at the same time. I personally think that gunpowder helped grow empires because they were able to defeat many empires at a faster rate since battles didn't last all day. The Russians expanded their territory because they had gunpowder. Portugal was able to defend their ships better because they had cannons.
