In Africa during the Post-Classical era, 600-1450 CE, the Saharan was no longer a barren wasteland hardly suitable for travel, but, an essential part of both North African and Sub-Saharan West African societies. Camels and caravans allowed for quicker and more effective traveling. With trading becoming increasingly popular in this area, it provided the resources to build new and larger political structures. During this era, Africa’s economy began to change and the western part of Sub-Saharan was no different. With the Trans-Saharan trade routes ability to increase with the help of wealthier Islamic states, it allowed for the spread of religious and political ideas such as larger empires and the Islamic faith in which both greatly influenced
More importantly, the children must also be kept morally pure. This routine to which women adhered was known as the "Cult of Domesticity" and it was the reasoning behind these women's home lives.

Willy Loman, for example, is suffering though the side effects of capitalism.
He openly disregards the contributions of countless races and civilisations in the development of the world and its enrichment. Most of the historical assumptions that he mentioned could very easily be disproved by simply referring and acknowledging the input and richness of the African, Asian and Arab cultures. To be more specific, one could refer to many discoveries: the very first fossils of early humans come entirely from the African continent, and no such fossils have been found anywhere else in the world. Africa is, in other words, the cradle of human kind -Darwin himself had predicted that in the 1870s. All recent existing civilisations are the fruit of early African civilisations.
What was the role of economics in driving changes resulting from the Neolithic and Industrial Revolutions? The Neolithic and Industrial revolutions were crucial to the advancement of economics. As a result of the Neolithic Revolution, the world began a transition from hunter-gathers to a more settled way of life. Through increases in population, settlements became towns and the dawn of civilization began. The economy impact from the Industrial Revolution was just as momentous.
This is how he begins to explain the transition from traditional society which was run by a feudal economy, to modern society which is run by a capitalist economy. Because of the industrial revolution and this introduction of a new means to produce all necessary items, Marx’s transition came about because of the change in the mode of production. Marx also partially suggests that this occurred because of class conflict and struggle, stating that if society is not functioning the way it should in the current system, it will change. However, even when the transition to a capitalist system became established, Marx continuously believed that it was doing more harm than good. A capitalist economy is based on private property.
The Industrial Revolution brought change in the socioeconomics of western cultures. These changes, in turn, influenced families. Three major aspects of the industrial revolution have been cited by scholars of family history as having great influence on family life (Coontz, 1992; Hunt & Hunt, 1987; Lasch, 1983; Demos, 1986). First, the rise of market capitalism influenced which families had the opportunity to make money. Second, consumerism, that is, the desire/ability to attain to a higher standard of living, changed families ' motivation for earning money.
Are the causes of social cohesion and change materialist, idealist or some other approach? How might you evaluate the contributions of each or their weakness in regard to an analysis of change? The theorists Marx, Durkheim, and Weber each have a different understanding of social cohesion and change in human society or culture. Social cohesion is the set of characteristics that keep a group able to function as a unit, this definition formed in the late eighteenth century.
