IIB: Human Migrations and enviorment impact The differentiates diapsoras from world religons and from borderlands, such as the Rio Grande Valley, and from stranded minorities, such as the Russians living outside of the Russian Federation in the Commonwealth of Independent States. He terms Soviet efforts to encourage Russian emigration to toher areas of the former Soviet Union a failed effort at creation of an imperial diaspora, such as that fostered by the United Kingdom IIIB: Key places along important trade routes, merchants set up diasporic communities where they introduced their own cultural traditions into the indigenous culture Babylonian captivity of part of the ancient Jewish population, and then the destruction of the Second Temple in a.d. 70 by Romans and teh subsequent dispersal of most Jews from the area of the ancient Jewish states, resulted in teh Jewish diaspora. Cohen argues, however, that most Jews probably lived outside Palestine from the time of the Babylonian captivity onward. Some Jews would return and restore the Temple by 515 b.c., but Judaism was much changed by the encounter with Babylon.

In Western Europe, via Muslim al-Andalus in Iberia, influence of Greek science and philosophy was re-introduced.
In East Asia, printing and gunpowder technologies was spread into the Islamic empires and throughtout Western Europe. During Classical times, the growth of population started to depend on trade from other countries which later than brought migration of other people. Swahili, is one of the main Bantu languages.Swahili serves as a official language for 5 nations. Some of the Swahili language is derived from the Arab language. It has also incorporated Persian, German, Portuguese, English, and French words into its vocabulary through contact during the past five centuries. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swahili_language The spread of Turkic and Arabic languages. Arabic has lent many words to other languages of the Islamic world, like Persian, Turkish, Bosnian, Kazakh, Bengali, Urdu, Hindi, Malay and Hausa. During the Middle Ages, Literary Arabic was a major vehicle of culture in Europe, especially in science, mathematics and philosophy. Turkic language roots can be traced back to Central AsiaVariety of the Turkish language was used as the administrative and literary language of the Ottoman Empire as it also spread. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkish_language Hinduism and Buddhism exerted an enormous influence on the civilizations of Southeast Asia and contributed greatly to the development of a written tradition in that area.
The earliest material evidence of Hinduism in Southeast Asia comes from Borneo, where late 4th-century Sanskrit inscriptions testify to the performance of Vedic sacrifices by Brahmans at the behest of local chiefs.
Beginning in the first half of the 1st millennium ce, many of the early kingdoms in Southeast Asia adopted and adapted specific Hindu texts, theologies, rituals, architectural styles, and forms of social organization that suited their historical and social conditions.
Neo-Confucianism was essentially a response by the Confucians to the dominance of the Daoists and Buddhists. Neo-Confucians such as Zhu Xi recognized that the Confucian system of the time did not include a very succesful metaphysical system and a so devised one. There were of course many competing views within the Neo-Confucian community, but in generall, this system emerged and resembled both Buddhist and Daoist, thought of the time and some of the ideas expressed in the Book of Changes. http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/266312/Hinduism/8988/The-spread-of-Hinduism-in-Southeast-Asia-and-the-Pacific http://www.onelittleangel.com/wisdom/quotes/neo_confucianism.asp As the Chinese, Byzantine, Caliphates, and Mongols Empires expnded, so did their need for trade. Their population started to grow and their need for food supplies was getting higher.
The Trans-Eurasian trade and communication was just an easy way to allow all that.
The Mongols promoted trade between the West,Middle East, and Asia along the Silk Road trade Route. Human Migration Still today Today our trade and our needs as people have led us to the same effect that it did 5 million years ago. We still find ourselves migrating from one place to another. Many have questioned :
"Is Human migration becoming a bad habit?" What do you think?
We have lived in this world for approximately 5 million years, our existence has been based on migration. Where you are now has been the effect of human migration. :) Ancestral Polynesians migrated from an island from Southeast Asia to Polynesia.
