Pax Mongolica - A world trade system
Posted 25 February 2010 - 10:28 AM
It was a great time period when the Eurasian supercontinent was buzzing with trade goods and knowledge transfer. It was the highlight of the times until the Black Death. If you take a look at the list on wiki, taken from Thomas T. Allsen - Culture and Conquest in Mongol Eurasia, p.6, great exchanges of people themselves with their variety of professions happened at this time and not just items of the traditional silk road. Was international commerce at this stage a better system than even under Tang administration?
I have the fortune of living in the part of the world which has use for toilet paper, but not douches.

I am really interested in the topics.
After all is the only time during which people, and not olny goods, could travel through the world with one single pass.
I will read the book you suggest.
