Therefore, Yassa consisted of the Mongol’s standards for society; as shown in the quote, he prohibited more blood from shedding and certain crimes from being committed which resulted in the peace among his people. Pax Mongolica also inspired “rich cultural development for western Asia; that period is referred to as the Pax Mongolica. The arts flourished, especially the illuminating and illustration of sacred Islamic texts and works of secular scholarship. Artists blended such Chinese motifs as lotuses and dragons with typical Muslim styles and themes, which created a unique multicultural artistic blend”(Il-Khanid Dynasty, Blackwell). Pax Mongolica brought cultural diffusion to the Mongols; since it was a period of peace, the Mongols were able to explore the cultures of people who lived within the empire.
In the quote, Genghis established a system called Yassa because he wouldn 't stand for such violence to occur in his empire. Consequently, Yassa consisted of the Mongols ' civil standards of society by the prohibition of tribal rivalries and any barbaric crimes, resulting in the peace among his people. Also, Pax Mongolica inspired "rich cultural development for western Asia;
Before Genghis came along, the Mongols acted like barbarians through their constant tribal rivalries and fightings; however, with Genghis’s strong-willed attitude and his strive for change, he was able to humanize and lead his people. For an example, unlike Khan’s predecessors, he “elevated men based on their abilities, courage and loyalty to him. If a man showed courage in battle and cunning in tactics, he’d find himself rapidly promoted.”. The quote demonstrates how the Mongols had a new system where they had to earn their military position and it gave them the drive to be a trustworthy and honorable soldier. Originally, Mongols were given positions based on birth, but Khan changed that and therefore Mongols became morally developed.
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
Hitler made wide sweeps of propaganda to keep himself in perfect light and his enemies oppressed. Hitler’s main way of spreading propaganda early on was through his public speeches. He held a powerful and charismatic voice that convinced many Germans that he could solve the country’s problems after World War I.
The Mongols conquered much land to create a vast empire with a legacy that impacts society today. With their armies, the Mongols brought a new type of government to China. They allowed China to continue its bureaucratic ways, but had absolute control over everything. Although there are other cultures that have influenced China’s government, the Mongols had a great impact on China’s government. This is shown by the similar traits both governments of the time share, its military dependency, intimidation, and absolute power without any checks.
All the great empires , most notably the Byzantine and Mongols were all defeated after enjoying long periods of success. Mongols were successful because they were interacting with many countries because of their conquests. Conquering others allowed the trade routes in Asia to move north. All these great countries and civilizations were so successful , mostly in part that they all worked together and their ideas spread to one another. Examples are Middle East/Mediterranean thrived with introduction of Indian crops , Arab and India were trading partners , Muslim and Mongol empires spread ideas and goods throughout Afro Eurasia, Industrial revolution , and the list goes on and on.
It also prepared me for another class I am taking called World Civilizations. I enjoyed Aron’s approach on it all, where he educated and validated others on their views of the West. Then he uses facts and history to expand that view in a more broad way. I think he was very well written and wasn’t offensive but educated myself, as well as others on the bigger picture of it all. The war occurred in the South Western quadrant of the “Great West”.
As the grandson of Genghis Khan, I stand as a defending witness in this trial to show that he and his other descendants, including myself are indeed a civilized conquerors and rulers in the 13th and 14th centuries. Being that I am Genghis Khan’s grandson, I am the successor of the Mongolian Empire. I am most known for the establishment of the Yuan Dynasty in China. In the field, I stressed to generals, the precepts of mentors, which is the importance and effectiveness of clemency towards the conquered. In order to run my realm, I combined many aspects of Mongol and Chinese leaders into the government.
A lot of reviewers felt similar to Belko and respected the work he did on Green. “Belko 's book is impressive in providing a new, stimulating perspective on Jacksonian politics, and in effectively re-evaluating the figure of Duff Green. However, his insistence in connoting him as a Westerner tout court tends to reinforce, rather than challenge traditional views of interregional contraposition that have long underscored the South 's isolation--ideological, cultural, and economic--from the mainstream of American history. It would be a shame if Belko, with his vast knowledge of Green 's life and thought, didn 't seize the opportunity and cover the last few decades of his existence in the South” (Susanna Delfino). “Belko has produced an outstanding book, both in substance and style.
