Big Picture Questions Ch13
1) The experience of empire for conquered peoples was broadly similar whoever their rulers were, Does the material in this chapter support or challenge this idea?
It supports and challenges the idea to a certain extent.
2) In thinking about the similarities and differences among the empires of the early modern era, what categories of comparison might be most useful to consider?

3) Have a look at the maps in this chapter with an eye to the areas of the world that were not incorporated in a major empire. Pick one or more of them and do a little research as to what was happening there in the modern era.
I chose the region of Borneo which is besides the Philippines. I believe the territory must have been led by an empire who did not want to be over thrown by the bigger empires such as Portuguese, French and English, so they would rather not be involved with their trade and other activities.
4) Looking back: compared to the world of the fifteenth century, what new patterns of development are visible in the empire-building centuries that followed?

2) How should we distribute the moral responsibility for the Atlantic Slave trade? Is this an appropriate task for historians?

    The trade involved moving goods to and from the Americas, Asia, and Africa. The goods; tropical islands’ spices, beaver pelts from America, and the Chinese porcelain, had their prices getting lower and therefore affordable owing to a vibrant shipping industry. Inland transport was by such rowed boats as the French boats which were, however, an inconvenience in rivers with many rapids. Mobility over the sea was one milestone that aided Dutch and other internationally trading nations to prosper. It enabled the merchants to facilitate ‘encounter’ and therefore achieve connectivity of different peoples; the Chinese, the Japanese, the Mohawks, the Huron, Algonquin and certainly the Europeans including the French and the English. The author also acknowledges the presence of the Portuguese and the Spaniards in the arena of international commerce. The mobility that characterized the transport of goods and merchants must have sown the seeds for the future’s globalized world. As the author points out ‘the people were weaving a web of connections and exchanges as never before’. This is strikingly similar to globalization today when worlds are more interconnected than…

This international trade began to develop further when chartered companies, such as the British East India Company and the Dutch East India Company, were created.…
