During this process of changing from hunting and gathering societies to civilizations, every aspect of a culture changed. The main difference between a hunting and gathering society and a civilization is that in a civilization there is sedentary agriculture. And once having a sedentary agriculture, a civilization can flourish because agriculture can feed more people, acquire less people to get the food, which leads for other people to flourish in different occupations, have a stable food supply year round, and causes people to adapt to their environment more. In this time period of hunting and gathering societies to civilizations, they are more innovations that help the civilization flourish. Such innovations include domestication, the use of writing, the use of bronze, and different political systems being created.
During this period from 5000 B.C.E. to 750 C.E., there are more new innovations that help the civilization grow and expand. Such innovations are the creations of the political and social systems. In part 2 of this chapter, there is a strong emphasis on China's expansion. In China's expansion, there is an emphasis on religion especially Confucianism and that led to the social system in China. Confucianism taught the people how to live their lives everyday and to maintain a manner that engulfs the teachings of Confucius. This also led to the political system of China, which the aristocrats were on top and the "mean people" were on the bottom. China also showed the inequality of the civilization and the patriarchy that it created.Because China was isolated, they couldn't connect to other parts of the world but because they're so technologically advanced, they became one of the most successful civilization.
The time period from 1600 B.C.E to 1.C.E. puts an emphasis on the expansion of different civilizations through conquering other civilizations. It also shows the emphasis of having a good military system that results in the expansion of a civilization. This period also relates to ch 3 of the book which shows the Indian civilization. In the Indian civilization, there is a strong emphasis on the caste system that India has created. The caste system is so important to the Indian civilization that it is the most important factor. The Indian civilization also put a greater emphasis on their religion, Hinduism. Hinduism has helped create the great empire of India that we know of today. Also the arts and sciences of India has helped India become one of the most advanced civilizations at its time.
During this time period from 2000 B.C.E. to 250 C.E., there is a high emphasis on religion and the social system. There is a high emphasis on religion to show the relationship between different civilizations with their religions. During this time period, this shows ch 4 of the book which is the classic civilization of the Mediterranean and Middle East. The civilization created in the Mediterranean are the Greeks and the Romans. The greeks had a very big influence on the whole world with their architecture, way of government, which was democracy,the Olympic games, their philosophy, and their science. All of the aspects of the Greek has influenced the whole world and we even see it today. The Romans had a similar influence on the world with similar aspects.
