Transcript of Period 4 Review WHAP

Portugal Leads, Spain Follows
Why PORT and SP first to ATL?
Geo: coasts farther into ATL and closer to AFR.
Patriotism: Catholics monarch retook SP from Muslims, want to go farther.
Geo: wanted to bypass IT trade in Med. w/ East. So looked for alt. route.
PORT in AFR w/ Henry the Navigator (prince/school). Dias passed Cape of Good Hope, De Gama made it to IND.
SP had to go W. b/c other routes taken by PORT and IT.
Columbus 1492, GGG --> West Indies.
Effects of Columbian Exchange
Def: Two-way exchange of new animals, plants, diseases and people.
Animals and Plants from Euro- horses, pigs, chickens, cows, sugarcane, bananas, wheat, and rice.
Horses and sugarcane had biggest impact: changed culture of most Native American groups and sugarcane plantation --> slaves from AFR.
Sugarcane plantations in Brazil started the slave trade to Americas. --> SP investing in "slave coast"
Animals and Plants from Americas: potatoes, tomatoes, tobacco, corn, cocoa, chili peppers.
Potatoes were popular b/c easy to store and grow. Maize/corn --> staple in AFR and CH --> Population growth.
Diseases: Smallpox killed around 90% of Americas pop'ln. Depopulation --> more land for Euro to conquer and settle.
People: Africans forced to the Americas as slaves, Indentured servants from Euro, and voluntary migrants. Religions also blended as newly converted Catholics had little rel. instruction.
Precious Metals: Gold --> SP, but Silver from Peru = $ for CH.
First global network of exchange!
Continuities in Global Networks Exchange
Islam continued to spread into Sub-Sah AFR, E/SE Asia, and Central Asia.
Buddhism spread across SE Asia and Central Asia.
Hinduism core religion of IND
Indigenous faiths continued to practice.
Latin America & Atlantic World
Social Shifts: Blend of Euro, AFR, and Native Amer. cultures.
Economies: plantations and competed in global market, 13 English Colonies: fish and tobacco...
Triangular Trade: sugar/rum/cod --> Euro --> trade for silver/rum/manufactured goods --> buy slaves in AFR --> slaves to Americas.
Mercantilism: raw materials --> manufactured goods, favorable balance of trade, more $ more power, tariffs and bus. w/ private companies (EIC).
More than halfway there!
Factors --> crossing ATL
Advances in ship design and navigation (shoutout to trade w/ Asia for compass, better rudders/sails)
Desire to spread Christianity
motivated by comp. from Islam and Protestants, esp. in SP and PORT (reconquista), and focused on S. and E. Asia.
Trade ($$$) increased wealth led to Renaissance, want to capitalize w/ Americas.
Why not E. Euro? Arctic Ocean icy, not close to ATL, RU expanding into Siberia.
Why not China? Zheng He (fun fact: he's Muslim) treasure fleet (junks) ended b/c cost.

Jesuits used for academia and science in China-- marked turning point in global leadership in tech from East to West.
SciRev: Monarchs put $ into sci research to gain new tech for dominating world markets. Effects: reduced faith in divine explanations of life, depended on science to answer challenges --> Ind. Rev.
Developments in Labor Systems
Peasant Labor increased in RU, IND, and CH b/c of increased need of goods for trade.
RU --> Siberia for furs.
IND- hand-woven cotton.
CH- silk production
Slavery intensified in AFR
ATL w/ Europeans, MED/IND Ocean w/ Muslim Arabs b/c of increasing need for labor.
Sugar plantations in Brazil- 3 yr life expectancy
Loss of AFR men greatly declined pop'ln and decreased patriarchy.
Encomienda and Mita Systems: use the natives who survived disease as slave labor, mostly in silver mines. Complaints --> end in early 1700s.
Indentured servitude: hired Europeans to work for no pay for around 7 years. Some learn a trade, but after 7 years they are freed.

W. Euro (SP, BR, FR, HOL): used mercantile system, built sea empires in Americas.
