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

8000 BCE- 3500 BCE 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

Paper money, banking, and letters of credit
Once areas were conquered a period of extended peace normally resulted Major Comparison: Compare European & Sub-Saharan African contacts with the Islamic World?
In the begining of this time period, the only contact between Europeans and Muslims was through trade and Greek philisophical, scientific, and medical writings. Throughout the seventh and eigth centuries, Arabs influenced sub-Saharan Africa politically, socially, and religiously. Because of political organization in states such as Ghana, Islam was easily adopted.Despite their conversion to Islam, most still practiced old traditions and religions. Beacause of Muslim invasions during the reconquista, religious conflicts intensified rivalries between Christian and Muslim states in the Iberian Penisula. The Christian victory of this reconquest lead to campaigns against Muslims also known as the Crusades. Pope Urban II launched the first crusade in 1095. He promised salvation to those who lost thier lives during these crusades. With no plans, weapons, ideas, or supplies, men and women set out to claim land from Muslims in Palestine, which resulted in disaster. These European crusades lead Muslims, Turks and Egyptians to put aside thier differences and fight against Christians. In 1187, they sealed the fate of the Christians in East Mediterranean.

Mansa Musa-African emperor converted to Islam
Musa's pilgrimage to Mecca drew converts
City-state converts: Swahili, Kilwa, and Zimbabwe China
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 Africa
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 Europe
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 China
Expansion of their influence into areas around them Vietnam, Japan, Korea, and Tibet

Promoted the spread of Buddhism in the early 600s, became national religion in Korea

The spread of Buddhism into Confucianism, making Neo-Confucianism Early Urban Society:
Entertainment: tea houses, social gathering areas, markets, etc.
