Remarkable new transoceanic maritime reconnaissance occurred in this period. European technological developments in cartography and navigation built on previous knowledge developed in the classical, Islamic and Asian worlds, and included the production of new tools, (such as astrolabe or revised maps) innovations in ship designs (such as caravels) and an improved understanding of global wind and currents patterns, all of which made transoceanic travel and trade possible See: re·con·nais·sance also re·con·nois·sance  (r  -k  n  -s  ns, -z  ns ) n .

By the way Russia is creating a _______ based empire Using in part tax farming land Rulers used tribute collection and tax farming to generate revenue for territorial expansion.

46 Tax farming: assigning the responsibility for tax revenue collection to private citizens or groups
historical examples in the early modern era: Ottoman, Mughal, Qing, France, Spain, Holland, England and Russia an important step in the development of state revenues and economic growth by providing a method for collecting taxes across a large area without the need for a tax-collecting b______________ Bureacracy in France from the 13th century and was also practiced widely in Holland, Spain, and England. It was one of the most important sources for the primitive accumulation of capital. As capitalism developed, tax farming was preserved in a distinctive form in 20th-century Italy, where private and savings banks collected certain taxes. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, forms of tax farming were used for collecting tax arrears in the USA. Tax farming was widely used in the Ottoman Empire beginning in the late 16th or early 17th century; it was abolished in It was also widely practiced in Iran from approximately the tenth century to the 1930’s and in India from the 13th or 14th century to the 19th century. In Russia, tax farming (otkup) was introduced in the late 15th or early 16th century. It was used especially for customs duties and salt and liquor revenues. Tax farming to collect liquor revenues was introduced in the 16th century and assumed the greatest importance during the 18th and 19th centuries. Treasury revenues from the liquor tax constituted more than 40 percent of the income from all taxes in the state budget. In 1863 tax farming to collect liquor revenues was abolished and replaced by an excise tax. See also

47 The Ya'ruba and the expulsion of the Portuguese
Competition over ________ routes (such as Omani-European rivalry in the Indian Ocean and ________in the Caribbean), state rivalries (such as the Thirty Years War or the Ottoman-Safavid conflict), and local resistance (such as bread riots) all provided significant challenges to state consolidation and expansion. The Ya'ruba and the expulsion of the Portuguese In the early 16th century the Portuguese trading empire sought to extend its influence and reduce Oman’s control over the thriving Arabian Sea and Indian Ocean routes. Portuguese troops invaded Oman and captured some of the coastal areas, occupying them for up to 150 years before being defeated by Sultan bin Saif Al Ya’rubi. During the Ya’ruba period (1624 – 1744) Oman entered an era of prosperity at home and abroad, and many of the Sultanate’s historic buildings and forts date from this time. Trade piracy

59 Theme 4: Creation, expansion, and interaction of ____________ systems
Agricultural and pastoral production Trade and commerce Labor Systems Industrialization Capitalism and socialism economic

60 Share of the World's GDP, 1AD - 2008
Historically, the world's balance of wealth undertook two major shifts, one triggered by the industrial revolution (early 19th century) and the other, unfolding, triggered by globalization (late 20th century). Source: Data compiled by A. Maddison, University of Groningen. Prior to the industrial revolution, the economic size of a nation was directly proportional to its population, which was dominantly rural. Agricultural surpluses permitted an initial division of labor and was used to support various crafts, administrative and service activities. The capacity to grow food was therefore the foundation of wealth of nations, since the greater the food surplus the larger the potential base for non-agricultural activities. Since China and India were mostly relying on rice cultivation (the most productive form of agriculture) supported by extensive irrigation systems, they achieved early in history the world's largest populations and correspondingly the largest GDP. They jointly accounted for 50% of the world's GDP up to the early 19th century. This situation would endure until the industrial revolution. The mechanization of production brought by the industrial revolution broke the relationship between population and economic output. The mechanization of production brought by the industrial revolution broke the relationship between population and economic output. More for later units

61 Europe in the world economy
far more important role than earlier -but did not dominate—no H_________________. established settler colonies in the__________, but most of the western hemisphere was beyond their control until 19th century; established a series of __________ posts and the colony of Angola in Africa BUT with rarely had direct influence beyond the coastlines. In SE Asia, Spain conquers the ____________ and the _________ control Indonesian islands, but posed no threat at all to the powerful imperial states that ruled China, India, southwest Asia; and Anatolia or Japan Hegemony Amerisas trading

62 European merchants’ role in Asian trade was characterized mostly by transporting goods from one Asian country to another market in Asia or the Indian Ocean region.

63 European trade patterns, 1740                                                                                                                                

64 The new global circulation of goods was facilitated by royal chartered European ___________companies who took _________from S_________ colonies in the ______________ to purchase Asian goods for the Atlantic markets, but regional markets continued to flourish in Afro-Eurasia using established commercial practices and new transoceanic shipping services developed by European merchants. Commercialization and the creation of a global economy were intimately connected to new global circulation of silver from the Americas. Monopoly silver spanish americas

65 Influenced by mercantilism, joint-stock companies were new methods used by European r________ to control their domestic and colonial economies and by European m____________ compete against each other in global trade.

77 1633 trial of Galileo Galilei
geocentric view that the Earth is at the centre of the universe. After 1610, when he began publicly supporting the heliocentric view, which placed the Sun at the centre of the universe, he met with bitter opposition from some philosophers and clerics, and two of the latter eventually denounced him to the Roman Inquisition early in Although he was cleared of any offence at that time, the Catholic Church nevertheless condemned heliocentrism as "false and contrary to Scripture" in February 1616,[10] and Galileo was warned to abandon his support for it—which he promised to do. When he later defended his views in his most famous work, Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems, published in 1632, he was tried by the Inquisition, found "vehemently suspect of heresy," forced to recant, and spent the rest of his life under house arrest. 1633 trial of Galileo Galilei

Scientific Revolution “prove it or lose it” reason plus proof “16th and 17th century: period of empirical advances associated with the development of theoretical generalizations; resulted in change in traditional beliefs of Middle Ages use of observation and mathematics to collect and analyze data The Royal Academy of Sciences, Paris

80 Effects of the Scientific Revolution “Science: The New Authority”
Created an interest in exploring most affected formal intellectual life, but also led to changes in popular outlook New Attitudes: skepticism about beliefs held on old authority; new confidence in the powers of reason; “Can do” positive approach about tackling problems Not anti-religious; deism develops Science the new authority is section heading in stearns

81 “Enlightenment: Intellectual movement centered in France during the 18th century: was an cultural movement of intellectuals in 18th century Europe that applied methods to scientific revolution to reform society Reason & Logic Positive view of progress Not anti-religious elite Positive view

82 Enlightenment philosophers Hobbes, Thomas The Leviathan
Life in a state of nature is nasty, brutish and short: John Locke ( ) Two Treatises of Government, 1690 Social Contract; consent of the governed Natural rights Govt is to protect property

83 Enlightenment—good government—Philosophers asked:
what is life like for humans in the state of nature? What is the purpose of government, Then they defined the “social contract” What do people give up under the social contract? What does the government give in return? Under what conditions can someone rebel (if ever)? The notion of the social contract implies that the people give up sovereignty to a government or other authority in order to receive or maintain social order through the rule of law. It can also be thought of as an agreement by the governed on a set of rules by which they are governed. Social contract theory formed a central pillar in the historically important notion that legitimate state authority must be derived from the consent of the governed

88 Developments Which Spur European interest in exploring
Crusades  wow cool stuff but we want it directly--by-pass intermediaries to get to Asia Renaissance  curiosity about other lands and peoples. Reformation  refugees & missionaries. Consolidation of nation states: Monarchs seeking new sources of revenue—land for cash crops Scientific Revolution: Technological advances, new interests. Get a sense of timing here Obviously reformation won’t spur Spanish state interest in exploring


90 The Commercial Revolution a period of European economic expansion, colonialism, and mercantilism from the 16th century until the early 18th century. PRECEDES Industrial REV increase in the buying and selling of goods, a surge in overseas trade, the appearance of the chartered company, acceptance of the principles of mercantilism, the creation of a money economy, increased economic specialization, and the establishment of such new institutions as the state bank, and the futures market.
