Chinese History How Genghis Khan Essay

… Chinese History

How Genghis Khan and His Mongols Takeover of China Had an Overall Good Effect on China.

The Mongols played a much more important role in history than did the Khitans and Juchen barbarians whom they resembled racially and culturally. Their role on the world stage was more outstanding not only because of the organizing genius of their world-conquering "Emperor within the Seas," Genghis Khan ( 1206-1227),

who molded numerous little tribes into a nation in arms, but also because the Mongol leaders made generous use of the skills and resources of the civilizations they conquered.

Among these civilizations China was by far the wealthiest and most important. In practically all their campaigns after the conquest of China the Mongols used war machinery which…. [read more]

Chinese History 1100-1500 the Yuan Research Paper

… The chief difference is that Rashid, at work in Ecbatana in the western part of present-day Iran, was living under Mongol rule. Polo was close to the ruling Mongols of the Yuan dynasty, and worked for them, but he was not really their subject. Whereas Rashid would live under Mongol rule, in a time when the relations between the ruling Mongols and their subjects were often made tense by religious conflict. Muslims, referred to in Chinese documents of the time only as "Hui-hui," seemingly a derogative for "Uighur," were regarded as peculiar for their dietary customs; Leslie quotes as a primary source the Khan's official court account, the Yuan shih, for the year 1280: "The Hui-hui who pass by and are offered food will not….

Inca Throughout the History of Mankind Essay

… Inca

Throughout the history of mankind, there have been several notable civilizations that started in the Before Common Era (BCE) age. These were the Indian, Chinese, Roman, Greek civilizations. But relatively recently, specifically during the Middle Ages rose civilizations that might probably have been considered relatively primitive and also relatively unknown. This is because they arose in relatively remote and relatively smaller communities. But they nonetheless left their mark on civilization, despite the fact that they were discovered only relatively recently. These are the civilizations of North America and South and Central America -- the Aztecs (in what is now Mexico), the Mayas and the Inkas (also spelled Incas -- the spelling used throughout this essay). Most people who travel for pleasure will list the…. [read more]

Literature and Cross-Cultural Encounters Essay

… Mohsin Hamid's 2007 novel The Reluctant Fundamentalist depicts a protagonist, Changez, who is essentially a cultural hybrid. Changez's name, as Hamid tells us, is the Urdu equivalent of Genghis -- reminding the reader perhaps that "Khan" remains a relatively common Pakistani surname even in the twenty-first century -- and thus ironically calls to the reader's mind the notion of hostile and warlike foreign invaders, terror and violence. Yet the story is narrated by Changez himself, who is represented as unfailingly polite and charming, as he tells his life story to an unnamed American (revealed in the final pages as potentially an assassin). Yet the major literary device of The Reluctant Fundamentalist is irony, and it can be demonstrated that Hamid's larger point is perhaps that…. [read more]
