RELATED UNITS

Unit 9. Connections Across Land

How were land-based trade routes conduits of both commerce and culture? The Eurasian Silk Roads, the trans-Saharan Gold Roads, and the Meso-American Turquoise Road trace the transmission of commodities, religions, and diseases, as well as the movements of people. This unit is related to Unit 14 because the transfer of labor across long distances was a basic function of ancient trading networks. more »

Unit 10. Connections Across Water

How were water routes used as conduits of expansion and trade? The traders of the Indian Ocean, the early Mississippians, and the Norsemen carried death and disease, skills and technologies, philosophies and religion down rivers and across oceans. This unit is related to Unit 14 because it documents an earlier period in which connections across water helped connect distant peoples. more »

Unit 15. Early Global Commodities

What is globalization and when did it begin? Before the sixteenth century, the world's four main monetary substances were silver, gold, copper, and shells. But it was China's demand for silver and Spain's newly discovered mines in the Americas that finally created an all-encompassing network of global trade. This unit is related to Unit 14 because labor migrations became globalized — in the form of the transatlantic slave trade — in order to meet the production needs of new commodities geared toward global trade networks. more »

Unit 24. Globalization and Economics

This unit travels from the Soviet Union to Sri Lanka and Chile to study the role of technology and the impact of economic and political changes wrought by globalization. This unit is related to Unit 14 because it deals with a later period of globalization, which depended on early modern systems of labor migration and commodity exchange for its creation. more »
