Trade in the Classical Period The Classical Civilizations, created a foundation of cultures, religions, government values, architecture, and additional contributions. The civilizations consisted of Greece, Rome, China, and India, which contributed many aspects of the world today. Without these civilizations, our current ways of life would be much different than they are. One main benefit from them was trading. Each civilization influenced each other in their ways and growth of trade.
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.
1) Shulush Homa represented the relationship that existed between the Europeans and the Amerindians because just like the Europeans and Amerindians, Shulush Homa was given guns, gifts, and honors as a gift in return for his good-doings. 2) The Red Shoe 's experience from the period of European colonization reveals multiple themes. First, even though the epidemics, wars, and territorial loss related with European settlement endangered Amerindians, many began to adapt new technologies and new political possibilities, thus started to thrive. Second, after long period of isolation, the Americans began to participate in global events, being influenced by the economic and political demands of Europe.

From Europe some commodities were distributed throughout Asia. Some states thrived under the trade, while others economically deteriorated so drastically that they continue to suffer today. Despite the consequences, the trade connected the world closer than ever before. A main reason why Europeans colonized the New World with such swiftness and determination lay in the drinks of nobles and the soil of peasants. Sugar was in high demand during the 1500s and 1600s, and the fertile coasts of the Carribean and Brazil made for a perfect environment.
Steam engines and Industrialization provided Europeans with vastly superior transportation: steamships, railroads, superior communications: telegraph and superior military power. The uneven power relationship that so favored Europeans made imperialism possible and hard to resist. (Lecture notes 21st October) However, by the 19th century, Europe’s dominance almost came to its end. Many factors contributed but in my opinion, it can be argued that mostly due to the competitive system and bit of industrialization, Europe’s dominance came to a decline. Due to competitive state system, the Europeans competed with each other and this is how the Industrialization revolution came into being as well; to compete with each other.
The direct encounter between the European explorers and the native population had had consequences on numerous issues and their interaction led to dominance of the ideas and beliefs. In the context of Columbian Exchange, the old world, roughly consisting of the western countries gained in a number of ways-discoveries of new supply of metals and new prosperous crops and vast arable land (Qian, 2010). The consequences from their interaction gave rise to the improvement in trade as a result of exploring new routes to promote trade and the scientific exploration which eventually allowed Europe to stand out in the global system in the late 17th century. However, along with those improvements, there are many negative consequences that arose as a result of European exploration that still have devastating impacts on the world system today and which are still highly debated
Nationalism is about having the greater love, pride for one’s state, its about loyalty and devotion to the shared cause of nation building. For the most part of early nineteenth century it played a uniting role in European politics which gave them some form of stability and common cause to fight for. So, when the fervor of nationalism crosses that invisible line then it leads to Imperialism. Imperialism is about forcing other people, foreign territory into subjugation who are different. Japanese attack on China and Korea before and during second world war was a form of Imperialism.
During the age of imperialism Europe had a lot of advantages that lead to the success of the continent. Imperialism is when a country’s power is extended. The age of Imperialism was when new colonies were developed and expanded, this occurred during the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century. Europe wasn’t only a more advanced area but there were also many geographic advantages. The Europeans were very capable of conquering most of the known world during the this time in history because of geographic luck also the animals that were in the continent and the weapons they had caused Europe to have a great advantage.
In this period the slave trade and its capital turnover made a substantial contribution to the economic development of the British Empire. Despite the positive contribution of the slave trade, some historians had skeptical views about the benefits of the slave trade. This essay will discuss motives and reasons of why British settlers needing the slave labour in the period of growing British
Located on the Iberian Peninsula, Spain is today an important European country with a very strong culture, influenced by varied populations such as the Visogoths or the Celtics. However, the cultures that have shaped current Spain the most are the Roman civilization and the Arab civilization. These two giant empires conquered what was known as “Hispania” during the Roman time, and “Al-Andalus” during the Arab time; leaving their mark on the country of Spain forever. In order to answer which civilization has been most influential to current Spain, we will in a first part, present the influence of Romans on current Spain. In a second part, we will then discuss the influence of Arabs on current Spain.
The political and technological developments helped to facilitate the European expansion. Individual European explorers’ main motivation was to locate luxury goods, promote Christianity, and to be the first to discover new lands and water. The states supported the European explorers because of demands for luxury goods, religious fervor, and the desire for glory. European expansion and the Afro-Eurasian trade world is the main reason that you have most of the luxury items that you have today. Without this trade world and expansion things would look and taste very
After this, a tax was placed on the Hims. Some argue that trade was the main reason for the spreading of Islam because Mecca was at a crossroads of the lucrative caravan trade. Vast camel trains would come through bearing valuable items coming from all over (A). Although, trade was closely related to military in that military brought in the trade. Without military, trade may not have been as popular as it was.
For example, the Ottoman Empire controlled the land surrounding the Mediterranean Sea, Red Sea, and the Baltic Sea thus was a part of a large sea trade network (doc 4). As a result, ideas and inventions were spread to this empire that improved people’s lives. Additionally, the Ottoman’s sphere of influence increased as well as they came in contact with other civilizations and further spread Islam. Furthermore, their economy grew and became wealthier as a larger amount of goods were entering the market and there was an increase in the exchange of products due to trade with multiple other empires. In addition, eastern coastal African towns like Mozambique, Zimbabawe, and Mogadishu were located along the sea network that connected India, Arabia and Africa, where exotic goods like animal skins, gold, and ivory were traded (doc 10b).
With the expansion of the English colonies also came a larger market to sell to other countries overseas. According to the navigation laws, most colonial products had to be transported to English ports and then be sold. This method had helped merchants, sailors, and shipbuilders enjoy more of the benefits that came with colonial trade. The American
Rome and Greece had many influential impacts on the Meditation Sea, such as, impacts on society, and many other things such as trade. In Roman Society the people were divided into groups known plebeians and Patricians. .Rome used the Mediterranean Sea to trade goods to other countries.
