The African and Middle Eastern World, 600-500, will help you understand the origins of Islam, the life and teachings of Muhammad, and how Muslim civilization expanded through conquest and trade. You will learn about the growth of cities, kingdoms, and empires, from the Arabian Peninsula to the various regions of Africa, and about Islamic contributions to science, medicine, geography, mathematics, philosophy, and the arts. You will also study the widely varied terrain of the African continent and how this affected its ways of life.The Medieval and Early Modern World tells the colorful story of a pivotal period in human history, an era that is crucial to understanding our own times. The expansion of trade and city life, the spread and reform of religious institutions, the rise of regional empires and local feudal regimes, and revolutionary advances in science and technology laid the foundation for the modern world. Told through the words and experiences of the people who lived it--kings, queens, and commoners, priests and lay people, explorers, scientists, artists, and world travelers--this is a world history for a new generation.
