The voyages of Zheng He reveal a powerful, accomplished, and restored Confucian state and civilization in China that was at least equal to, but very different from, emerging early modern Western civilization. List and describe the major factors that made those voyages possible. How do you evaluate and understand the later Ming decision to drop (and forget about) the voyages
Weegy: Remember Zheng He [Cheng Ho] ! Columbus sailed to America in St. Maria (eighty-five feet) in 1492. [ [ Zheng He sailed from China to many places throughout South Pacific, Indian Ocean, Taiwan, Persian Gulf and distant Africa in seven epic voyages from 1405 to 1433 ,some 80 years before Columbus's voyages. Zheng He flag "treasure ship" is four hundred feet long - much larger than Columbus's. Zheng He (1371-1435), or Cheng Ho, is arguably China's most famous navigator. Starting from the beginning of the 15th Century, he traveled to the West seven times. For 28 years, he traveled more than 50,000km and visited over 30 countries, including Singapore. Zheng He died in the tenth year of the reign of the Ming emperor Xuande (1435) and was buried in the southern outskirts of Bull's Head Hill (Niushou) in Nanjing. ] ] (More)

Summarize the major factors that allowed the Incas to conquer and rule their large empire. Some suggest that, in many ways, the Incas were like the Romans or other Pre-Columbian American Civilizations. Evaluate whether they were more similar or different, and why. Make sure to identify which civilization you are comparing the Incas to in the subject line of your post.
Weegy: thematics, astronomy, and engineering. In the western part of North America nomadic tribes roamed over the Great Plains in search of buffalo and other game and often came into conflict with other tribes over the use of their hunting grounds. [ When game became more scarce, perhaps due to over-hunting or from other causes, many American Indian groups turned to agriculture as a means of subsistence. In so doing American Indians became perhaps the best farmers in history, developing new crops and refining farming methods that they later shared with the colonists ] (More)

Weegy: The Incas treatment and system of integration of their subjects and conquered people was one reason for their remarkable success in expanding and keeping their state. [ First of all we have to look into the minds of the Incas what their reasons for expanding were. Apparently, the Incas saw themselves as the most advanced and highest ranking people on earth, their realm was the world and everything beyond it was savage and barbarian in their views, similar to the Chinese reaction to the outer world. They perceived themselves as spreaders of civilization and culture, missionaries among the savages, just like the Europeans later would think about the Incas themselves when they arrived to Peru! Therefore, the Incas saw it not only as their right, but also their duty to the Gods to expand their kingdom (as Manco Capac had instructed them to do in his last will) and educate the lesser people. When conquering a people, the Incas would take their rulers hostage and perhaps move the population as mitmaqs, to other areas whereas new mitmaq settlers from another area took over their lands. Often the weakest leaders were imposed as Incan puppet rulers. The Incas didn't banned different cultures, on the contrary they often took advantage of other culture's technology and foreign deities were adopted in the growing Inca pantheon. Only the worship of the Sun Inti was made mandatory throughout Tahuantinsusy (through the sun God the Inca could control the people since he was the son of Inti), as did the Quechua language. The Inca armies could be very brutal if necessary, but they preferred to save the opponent's fields and crops, which would be used by themselves later. If a subject people revolted however, the response could be extremely brutal to state an example - The people were massacred or carried into slavery, their leaders were brought to Cuzco and in front of the Sapa Inca they were publicly humiliated, tortured and executed. ] (More)
