Hangzhou was the capital of the southern Song dynasty. Zhao Kuangyin was the founder of the Song dynasty. The Song empire was smaller in territorial extent than the Tang empire. In ancient Chinese culture, the mature woman was expected to exhibit: resolution, courage, constancy, humbleness and patience. General Li wanted to bring petty brigands to order. Li Yuan was the founder of the Tang dynasty. The emperor Xuanzong’s reign marked the high point of the Tang power. Foot- binding served to diminish the independence of Chinese women by the end of the Song era because it sufficiently crippled women by effectively confining their mobility to the household. The primary reform enacted during the reign of the first Sui emperor was the creation of granaries to relieve the threat of famine. A primary difference between marriages, families, and households of the upper and lower classes in Tang / Song China was that extended family households were more common in upper-class households than in lower-class ones. During the Song dynasty the interest of Confucian intellectuals in nature was most apparent in their production of landscape paintings. Zhu Xi was the most prominent of the neo-Confucians during the Song era. Members of the elite class of China were more attracted to a variant of Buddhism called Chan. The invasions of the Jurchens who had formed the Qin kingdom caused the flight of the Song dynasty from its capital in northern China. AMERICAS The Incas’ lack of a writing system was a significant cultural difference between them and Aztecs. The capital of the Incan Empire was Cuzco. By 1500, agriculture was diffused throughout the Americas, although not always in sedentary agricultural communities. Circa 1325 the Aztecs establish their great capital city of Tenochtitlan on a marshy island in Lake Texcoco. During the post-classical period, societies in the Americas remained entirely separate from those of the Old World. The Inca practice of split inheritance dictated that all political power and titles went to the ruler's successor, but his wealth was kept in the hands of the male descendants to support the cult of the dead Inca's mummy. Territories conquered by the Aztecs were administered loosely, often left relatively unchanged as long as they recognized Aztec supremacy and paid tribute. The Aztec innovation in intensive agriculture in the aquatic environments of the lakes of central Mexico was the development of chinampas. The central figure of the cult of human sacrifice and the most sacred deity of the Aztecs was Huitzilopochtli. Closely identified with the cult of sacrifice and the military, the Aztec social hierarchy developed a nobility referred to as the pipiltin. The impact of expansion and conquest on the Aztec social system was that it went from a loose association of clans, Aztec society became a highly stratified society. The Aztecs viewed the Toltecs as the givers of civilization because of their cultural achievements. Around 1325, the Aztecs migrate to the central valley of Mexico. One of the most permanent features of Aztec society was its organization into clans or calpulli. The northern nomadic peoples who entered central Mexico following the decline of Teotihuacan were the Toltecs. MONGOLIA
KOREA & JAPAN According to Carpini, a Mongol's behavior toward other peoples was hostile, sly, duplicitous and crafty. The prince of Muscovy, in alliance with other Russian princes, defeated the Golden Horde in 1380 at the battle of Kulikova. In 1271, Kubilai Khan changed the name of the Mongol dynasty in China to Yuan. Timur-i Lang was the Turkic nomadic leader who began a period of conquest beginning in the 1360s. Iron maces, bronze cannon, bows and arrows and lances were part of the arsenal of the Mongol army under Chinggis Khan. At the time of the Mongol invasion in the first half of the 13th century was the political organization of Russia. Russia was divided into numerous petty kingdoms centered on trading cities. Chinggis Khan's forces frequently employed the use of heavy cavalry attacks on the flanks after an initial frontal attack and feigned retreat as their primary tactic on the field of battle. The demographic blow to Eurasian populations caused by the Black Death was one of the most important but indirect and unintended impacts of the Mongol drive to the west. The Mongol commander in the 13th- century campaigns against the Song was Chinggis Khan's grandson, Kubilai Khan. In many ways, the Mongols epitomized a nomadic society and culture. The Mongols were defeated in 1260 at Ain Jalut by the Mamluk dynasty of Egypt. In the early 12th century, the Qin kingdom of northern China was defeated by a Mongol confederation under the leadership of Kabul Khan. The political dominance of Moscow grew under Mongol rule because the princes of Moscow collected tribute for the Mongol khans and became the seat of the Metropolitan of the Orthodox church. Following Chinggis Khan's death, the provision for the administration of the empire was to divide it into four regional kingdoms, or khanates, ruled by his sons and grandsons. Kubilai Khan attempted to preserve the separation of Mongols and Chinese using these methods:
-Mongols were forbidden to marry ethnic Chinese.
-Only women from nomadic families were selected for the imperial harem.
-Chinese scholars were forbidden to learn the Mongol script.
-Mongol military forces were kept separate from the Chinese. During his imperial rule, Chinggis Khan promoted the growth of trade and commerce, religious toleration for many different religious groups, a legal code to end divisions and quarrels among the Mongol clans and brought peace to much of Asia. The Mongols not pursue the conquest of western Europe because the death of Khagan Ogedei in Karakorum precipitated a struggle for the succession involving the khan of the Golden Horde. CONFUCIANISM
& BUDDHISM The agrarian societies in the East and South were most drawn to Chinese cultural and political models. The following statements illustrate Confucian ideas and sentiments:
-Life is a struggle, but each person must put forth effort to live life honorably.
-The limits of individuals are not judged but commented upon and given a measure of dignity.
-Regrets and aspirations can be seen as universal regardless of cultures.
-Different sides of a single problem can be exposed through literature. Character in literature can say and describe events that one could not voice in ordinary conversation. Buddhist monks so threatened the security of the Japanese imperial court in the 8th century that the imperial family moved to Heian. Buddhism was the religious preference of the Korean elite. Language, village autonomy among the Viets, higher social status for Viet women and political institutions were some of the main differences between the Viet and Chinese cultures prior to their conquest by the Han emperors. Even after the assertion of Vietnamese independence from China in the tenth century, Vietnamese rulers choose to retain the Chinese administrative system based on the Confucian examination system. After the Han conquest of 111 B.C., the following cultural traits were introduced into Vietnam:
-Chinese examination system and bureaucracy
-Chinese agricultural cropping techniques and irrigation technology
-Chinese- style schools
-Chinese military organization The Korean dynasties during this timer period were, in sequence: Silla, Koryo, Mongol, Yi. The development of regional power bases in Japan among the warrior elites of the countryside corresponded to the decline of the Tang dynasty. The political result of the wars that destroyed the Ashikaga Shogunate was the division of Japan into 300 little states under the daimyos. Life in the imperial court at Heian was described in a Japanese novel called Tale of Genji. Chinese influence on Japan peaked in the 7th and 8th centuries C.E. Warrior leaders in the 10th century in Japan who controlled provincial areas and ruled from small fortresses in the countryside were called bushi. The Han emperors conquer the first Korean kingdom of Choson 109 B.C.E. Shogun was the title given to the military leader of the bakufu at Kamakura. Mounted troops owing loyalty to the military elite were called samurai. A major impact of the rise of the samurai in the peasantry in Japan was that Japanese peasants were reduced to the status of serfs bound to the land they worked.
