Me: This will be a great way for students check their margin question answers!!!
Student: Wait. What?
Oh, nobody wants to use this? Well, here's one for free.
How does this Indian artist convey to his audience the grandeur and power of Chinggis Khan? What elements of Chinggis Khan’s life and accomplishments are absent from this image?
* Chinggis Khan looks like a king. He is on a throne surrounded by court officials and servants.
* Chinggis Khan rose to be the ruler of the nomadic Mongols by conquest on the back of a horse.
These elements are missing from the image.
Well, I'm going to give this one more try for Chapter 4.
What accounts for the political and military success of the Mongols?
-By the end of Chinggis Khan’s reign, the Mongol Empire had developed an ideology centered on
a mission to unite the whole world in one empire.
-The Mongol army was better organized, better led, and better disciplined than the armies of its
-The Mongol army was organized to diminish the divisive tribalism of the pastoral clan structure,
partly by spreading members of tribes among different units of the army.
-The Mongols made up for their small numbers by incorporating huge numbers of conquered peoples into their military forces.
-The Mongols quickly acquired Chinese techniques and technology of siege warfare, which allowed them to overcome the elaborate fortifications of walled cities.
-Mongol forces were effective in part because of their growing reputation for a ruthless brutality and utter destructiveness. Their reputation served as a form of psychological warfare, a practical
inducement to surrender.
-The Mongols displayed an impressive ability to mobilize both the human and material resources
of their growing empire through census taking, an effective system of relay stations for rapid
communication, and the beginnings of a centralized bureaucracy in the capital of Karakorum.
-The Mongols fostered commerce.
-The Mongols drew on conquered peoples to fill advisory and lower-level administrative positions.
-The Mongols welcomed and supported many religious traditions as long as they did not become
the focus of political opposition.
What geographic features prevented mongol conquests from further expansion? I got rivers and oceans but idk
PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR NAME IN POSTS. We don't want weirdos!
Definitely mountains and seas, but you might include the lack of pastoral lands in Europe, and the humidity in India.
On 172, it asks: What role did trade play in the spread of the plague from its place of origin to West Europe?
- the plague spread along Mongol-fostered trade routes
- the trade routes spanned and connected large areas
- merchants who traveled along those roads were motivated to arrive in cities to sell their goods even if they became sick
- merchant caravans often carried new species and microorganisms from across Eurasia and probably didn't clean or bathe along the way
Do other people have different things?
Great points! Some other additional notes I had were:
- the plague spread through long distance interaction
- the connection of opposite sides of Eurasia
A more concise answer
Was anyone able to figure out the long-term consequences of the spread of the plague across Eurasia?? I know that it resulted in labor shortages, population decrease (of course) and increased jobs for women, but those all seem short-term.
You really should read earlier posts before you ask a question
Did someone ask the same quuestionn as me? I saw Callisto's question about the plague, but theirs was on p.172. The one I'm referencing was on p.174. Not trying to be rude, just wondering if i missed something.
This is responding to Zella. The reply button wouldn’t work.
I had labor shortages as well. Even though they were short term, they had some long term effects, such as weakening the serfdom and a greater interest in teach innovation. Here are some of my other points:
-Demise of Mongol Empire
-Central Asian trade route closed, trade by land declines
-West Europeans used their naval innovations and became “Mongols of the sea”
On page 166, how were the roles of mongol women diff from roles of women in most other settled societies? What accounts for the differences? I said that they were higher ranking and served as advisors and have influence on court. This is because it’s an old mongol tradition and they have fancy headdresses to show that. Idk tho.
I said that Mongol women:
-could serve as advisors to leaders, had influence
-had more freedom and could intermingle with men
-they are from a pastoral society rather than agricultural society
Yeah, but what is the difference in societies that matters to this question?
What did you put for the question: “Compare and contrast this image with the one at the opening of this chapter. How might you explain the differences in how the rulers are depicted?”
I put that:
-Chinngus’s portrait shows the whole family, Kublai only him (this might be because during Kublai’s time there were more divides among mongols?)
-Kublai’s portrait has a more Chinese style, resembles old Confucian portraits. This is probably because he is the main ruler of China.
there is a question on page 200: "The term "imperialist" has a negative connotation today, but was a source of pride for some in 1450-1750. how does the context of this period explain this pride?
- Many countries participated in imperialism
- imperalism expanding your countries land, patriotism
- It brought discoveries to your country
- imperalists were praised by country
anyone have anything else i was a bit confused by this question
Or simply, during this time (1450 - 1750), creating an empire meant building strength. Today, empire building implies
domination and exploitation.
In what ways did European empires in the Americas resemble their Russian, Chinese, Mughal, and Ottoman counterparts, and in what respects were they different? Do you find the similarities or the differences more significant?
For similarities, you could emphasize that Europe was not the only center of vitality and expansion during the early modern period,
and that the interaction of culturally different peoples occurred in the European, Russian, Chinese, Mughal, and Ottoman empires.
However, the European empires represented something completely new in human history through their creation of an interacting Atlantic world.
They had a far more significant impact on the people that they incorporated than did the other empires (forced labor, cultural imposition, economic exploitation), and they had a far wider impact on the world as a whole.
You could make the case for either the similarities or differences being most striking using the evidence.
The question on page 209 asks "How did European nations differ in their colonization of the western hemisphere?". Is the question asking how their tactics differed from each other or from colonization in the past?
From each other. It's a comparison question. A T chart would be a great tool.
On 202, it asks how a map of the Americas shows a rivalry between European states. I have that is has a lot of territories in close proximity, that the divisions indicate a scramble for the land around the same time period, the St. Lawrence river territory that splits the two British territories, and that the Dutch have the least amount of territory. Does anyone have anything else?
