The Tibetan and the Mongol People The Tibetan and the Mongol people both have related religions and live in similar habitats but their roles in life are different, causing their societies to be different too. Both ethnic groups can be found in China; the Mongols can be found mainly in the north region of China and the Tibetan people are native to Tibet which is also in China. The clothes they wear and foods they eat are very similar, mainly because the weather of their habitats is very cold. These two ethnic groups were both very powerful and each conquered large parts of Asia and quickly became feared throughout China. After taking control of large parts of Asia, the first Tibetan emperors invited Buddhist monks from India and China to teach Buddhism.
Though the Mongolian expansion led to devastation in both Russia and China, Mongol rule had positive long-term effects on both civilizations that eventually supported their rise as political and economic powers in the 15th and 16th centuries. Under Mongol rule, the economies of both civilizations grew; however, they expanded for different reasons. Chinaâs economy flourished after the re-opening of the Silk Roads, while many of Russiaâs princes became wealthy because of their ability to manipulate their roles as tribute collectors. Politically, China and Russia were influenced in different manners. As a result of Mongol contact, China became unified whereas the trace amount of Russian unity disintegrated.

Traditionally, artisans and merchants were looked down upon and placed at the bottom of the hierarchy simply because they conflicted with the Confucian way of thought with the aristocracy and the scholar-gentry resting at the top. When Kubilai Khan overtook the government, he promoted commerce and the arts, pushing the merchants and artisans to the top of the social structure, thus resulting in a loss of power for the scholar-gentry. His refusal, despite many Chinese officials’ futile efforts, to reinstate the examination system to administrative office, further weakened the scholars’ power by restraining their political involvement and keeping them below the Mongols in the social order.

Spain’s empire was driven by a desire for silver, but was presented many challenges as they had to expand across an ocean and cope with a new world. Russia, on the other hand, expanded their territory as a way of pushing back the Mongols and accessing other trading connections. They were similar in how their expansions were economically driven and how they had to adapt to multiracial societies. Because they were in separate continents in opposite parts of the world, Spain and Russia had largely different processes of empire building. Spain’s conquest of the New World was strictly by force.
