In many ways, both states were extremely similar in the way Mongols ruled them. For instance, both empires made great use of the Silk Road. The “Pax Mongolica” refers to the peace under Mongol rule and the commerce through the routes as religions, ideas, and technologies were spread. However with this increase in trade, both states suffered from a drop in their economies. The Mongols mainly focused on collecting taxes, and when they conquered the areas, they destroyed a lot of farmland in each.
This created peace on the road, and greater benefits for those in China. This also allowed Russia safe access to trade routes, stabilizing their rough economy. Furthermore, the increased wealth allowed for greater taxation of both China and Russia, conducted by the Mongol leaders. Pursuing this further, the Mongols additionally established a mail system which contributed to the spread of wealth and also some diseases. On the contrary, Mongol rule was carried out completely differently in China and Russia.
Furthermore the Lords began overusing the courts as a method of increasing their wealth this meant that the people became increasingly frustrated and because the Lords had the respect of the King the commoners could have rebelled against the English monarchy. In Wales the courts were committing perjury and guilty of accepting many bribes which meant even if the criminals were court it was unlikely they would be brought to justice. The Acts of Union showed the Marcher Lords that they were responsible for the behaviour of their citizenship and this meant that the King’s law was enforced thoroughly throughout Wales. The Acts also served as a method of establishing a single unified system of government for England and Wales, the Council of Wales was given its own administrative powers. The Acts of Union also meant that welsh people were able to seek office and become M.P’s in London if they paid and could speak English to a certain level.
In the beginning, all the empire was united under Chinggis Khan and had effectively ruled. Golden Horde and Yuan dynasty differed greatly in their methods of political power because they were directly influenced by the Confucianism or Islam. This led to diverse method of political control as Islamic teachings taught that Another big change from 1200 to 1500 CE was placement of the scholars in the empire. All the famous scholars were collected from conquered nations and brought to Mongol. However, as the empire split into four the scholars were split to different nations and culture which effectively affected the method of political power because Golden Horde was severely influenced by the Islamic teachings and the Khan of Golden Horde was converted to Islam.
Who were also looking to become in power. Trotsky was the main reason the Bolsheviks had survived as the Bolsheviks government due to Trotsky being the commander for the red army. He also had support from Lenin who was leading the red army with total discipline; those who were willing to fight were promoted and those who turned out to be cowards were exiled. Trotsky and Lenin were both smart during the civil war as they had a upper hand with resources as they were closer to them as their opposition were so far away. This was an advantage for the red army as it was easy to communicate which helped them in the battle fields and be much easier to be successful in the war without communication they weren’t able to come up with tactics and plan how they would attack the whites, also railway support would bring the army weapons and food supplies very quickly.
The empires of the “Classical World” evolved techniques that helped control the advancing civilizations. Those techniques helped civilizations become unique and share many similarities and differences. The Roman Empire and Han China were two empires that progressed strongly through the “Classical World” and expanded their empire with the use of a strong administrative structure. The non-hereditary administration in both empires were controlled by emperors (known as a “Consul” in Rome) and a representation of the elite population through the Senate in Rome and the government officials in Han China that were chosen through an exam. Techniques of the both empires also grew through their military that defended the empires and conquered neighboring lands.
Some important rulers were Genghis Khan and Kublai Khan. Other rulers included Ogedei, Guyuk, and Mongke Khan. These rulers expanded their kingdom into northern India, central Asia, China, Persia and some parts of Europe. One good thing that came out of this vast empire is that many people could trade more safely on the Silk Road since it was now in one big empire. A bad thing is that the Mongols killed many people and devastated towns as they conquered new lands.
If we did, what would we have left, we only have what the people back then wanted us to have. Putting together the pieces of the Aztec empire through Spanish eyes is better than nothing. It leads us to believe the Spanish were the greater civilization. All civilizations are defined by war and in this situation the Spanish won and conquered the Aztecs. Even today the Spanish are still prominently around, occupying much of the worlds population.
The Mongols and Globalization The Mongol conquests effected peoples far and wide. The trade routes and the exchange of goods, ideas, philosophies, and new technologies changed how all societies lived, even the ones that were not on the verge of Mongol takeover. Just the fear of a possible Mongol battle changed the way a society went about their daily lives. The information that traveled along trade routes, such as the Silk Road, allowed societies to become more advanced and enlightened, even though with it came war and destruction brought on by the Mongols. The Mongol conquests of Eurasia allowed globalization to spread across the land, through the peoples, and on the backs of horses (Shaffer).
The other countries began to start feel jealous, so they did the same. For these reasons, countries competed with one another to gain the largest empires. The competition led to animosity or strong hostility between countries. This helped lead to World War One. In conclusion, M.A.I.N.
