Question and answer
One of the most effective forms of resistance that slaves employed against their masters was?
Enslaved African Americans resisted slavery in a variety of active and passive ways. "Day-to-day resistance" was the most common form of opposition to slavery. [ Breaking tools, feigning illness, staging slowdowns, and committing acts of arson and sabotage- all were forms of resistance and expression of slaves' alienation from their masters. Running away was another form of resistance. Most
slaves ran away relatively short distances and were not trying to permanently escape from slavery. ]

What was the main motivating factor for European maritime expansion in the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries?
Weegy: By the middle of the seventeenth century, the full impact of the Commercial Revolution had not yet been experienced in Europe. [ Neither the Portuguese nor the Spanish, who were dominant overseas until the late 1500s, could maintain their initial advantages over the long term. Portugal lacked manpower and resources required by an empire spread over three continents. Spain wasted the wealth of the New World in continuous wars, while neglecting to develop its own economy. Yet the fabulous "Iberian Age" brought a momentous transition, as Lisbon and Seville received the world's wealth in gold, silver, slaves, and spices. In 1503 Portuguese pepper cost 80 percent less than that which came through Venice and the eastern Mediterranean. ^1 During the sixteenth century, Spanish bullion, flowing into northern banks and markets, provided a major stimulus to European capitalism and prepared the way for empire-building by the Dutch, English, and French after 1600. Iberian expansion also inspired other Europeans with hope and confidence while effecting a mixing of peoples, a diffusion of cultures, and an intercontinental exchange of plants and animals such as the world had never seen before. ] (More)
