Question and answer
Q: Give me Point on Review the articles by Fitzpatrick, Mahbubani, Mumford, Nye, and Owen, and the article from The Straits Times Web site in this week's Learning Resources to gain perspective on the
mutual impacts of modern day culture and technology in Asia.
A: From the Mongol period on, then, we can speak about a Eurasian ? if not a global ? history, in which developments in one part of Europe would have an impact not only in Europe but also in Asia, with the same being true for Asia. [ And if we remember that Christopher Columbus was actually looking for a new route to Asia when he landed in America ? and that one of the few books he had with him
was Marco Polo?s account of his travels in Asia ? we could even say that global history begins with the Mongols and the bridge they built between the East and the West. The Mongols recognized that the caravan trade across Eurasia was extraordinarily expensive for any single merchant. Often there would be as many as 70 to 100 men on each mission, and all had to be fed and paid and provided with supplies (including camels, horses, and so on) over a lengthy period of time. Such a view has diverted attention from the considerable contributions the Mongols made to 13th- and 14th-century civilization. Though the brutality of the Mongols? military campaigns ought not to be downplayed or ignored, neither should their influence on Eurasian culture be overlooked. ]
