China, the last of the river valley civilizations, demonstrated greater continuity, with the Zhou dynasty, formed shortly before 1000, continuing, though amid weak organization, for several centuries beyond. What is clear, particularly outside of China, is that a new series of civilizations, partly co-located with where the early civilizations had been and certainly building on their achievements, was actively in the wings by 1000 BCE or shortly thereafter. These civilizations would assume greater power than the river valley societies had mustered.
The Arab empire – the caliphate – began to lose signiﬁcant territories, and it was ﬁnally toppled late in the thirteenth century. THE MONGOLS Brieﬂy, a new force arose to help organize the trans-regional framework. Mongol conquerors from central Asia swept over China, into the eastern part of the Middle East, and conquered Russia. Interlocking states, or khanates, provided new travel security from Europe to Asia, and the Mongols proved tolerant of new contacts. Land-based trade and travel increased, and so did exchanges from Asia westward.
SCIENCE A ﬁnal major development began to take shape in the early modern period, but its global signiﬁcance was not immediately apparent. On the whole, global cultural exchanges were limited in these centuries, as if societies reacted to new trade contacts and empires with an implicit desire to keep identities separate. Japan, indeed, deliberately adopted a policy of substantial isolation in part because of fear of too much Christian inﬂuence from Europe. In Western Europe, however, particularly from the seventeenth century onward, a real scientiﬁc revolution occurred that would have huge implications for world cultures and technologies over time.
