Indian Ocean Trade
Monsoon System
Summer (winds blow Southwest)
Winter (winds blow Northeast)
allowed mariners to sail safely to all parts of Indian Ocean Basin
Trade Routes
maritime trade networks through the Indian Ocean linked not only the large classical societies of Eurasia and North Africa but also smaller societies in East Africa
establishment and maintenance of these trade routes was an expensive affair calling for substantial investment in military forces, construction, and bureaucracies to administer the commerce that passed over the routes
long-distance trade stimulated economic development within the Hellenistic realms themselves, bringing benefits to local economies throughout the empires.
Hellenistic rulers closely supervised foreign trade and levied taxes on it, there by deriving income even from foreign products
Silk Roads
Trade Goods
silk-China; spices/ cloves/ nutmeg/ mace/ cardamom-Southeast Asia; ginger/ cinnamon-China; pepper/ sesame oil-India and Arabia; large, strong horses/ jade- Central Asia; glassware/ jewelry/ art/ decorative items/ perfumes/ bronze goods/ wool and linen textiles/ pottery/ iron tools/ olive oil/ wine/ gold/ silver bullion-Roman Empire

4000 BCE-1000BCE
Gender System in Civilizations Through 600-1450:
Under Allah's judgement, women and men were equal, but Islamic ideals reinforced male dominance

Women had no choice in the marriage, as they were the parents choice; it happened at an early age

Elite women werre given chances, as was the first women ruler, Razia Sultana

An example of male dominance is the enforcement of women to wear full body clothing

African Civilizations:
Islamic Influences
Arrived by Trans Saharan and sea lanes
Africans adopt Islam but retain culture
Appealing because-Muslims equal, and relations with Arabs
10th century, Ghana converts to Islam
Mali Empire-also converted to Islam
Mansa Musa-African emperor converted to Islam
Musa's pilgrimage to Mecca drew converts
City-state converts: Swahili, Kilwa, and Zimbabwe
Women in China had very little power, as they were mainly dominated by males

An example of this would be: women were not allowed to raise their voice at their husband, women were to stay widowed if their husband died, and new born baby girls had to under go humiliating rituals

The only exception were to the female elites: women in the Emperor's home and military people
Though powers in Africa were predominantly patriarchal, women had more oppurtunities than other women in other parts of the world

Women were mainly house workers and could have much say in the family as well as have a little power in the household

In their societies, women were less heard then men, but they could influence public affairs by showing virtue in their house hold
World Economy
The world did have a network of systems, but it was limited to trade in Asia, Japan, Africa, and Europe, and with the introduction of China and Western Europe to trade brought new luxuries to the world, such as steel, silk, spices, horses, textiles, and building goods
Silk Road was used to bring foreign goods to Europe, as well as introduce new technologies to Europe during the period of Mongol reign in China

As well as trade in the Indian Ocean and between the Swahili City States, which also had Trans-Sahara Trade, with items such as gold, ivory, slaves, and precious gems

Much trade flourished through Constantinople and in Mecca, leaving the exchange of cultures, opening the world to the different technologies and luxuries
It was still a patriarchal gender system, with men soley controlling and power over their land

Women were like servants to the men, and still did house work and cared for the family

Elite women were in the family of the manor, they still had less power but had more leisure time to do what they pleased

Serfdom gave less power to all peasants and almost all power to the lord of the manor, who let the serfs use his land in return for their planting of crops
Early Urban Society:
Entertainment: tea houses, social gathering areas, markets, etc.

Centralized city

Largely built on trade and commerce

Peasants held less freedom because of large land and money holders were in control of political and military power

Leads to the ideals of Capitalism because of the new wealth in trade in the merchant class
