listed below is the professors requirements. Please read carefully as for he is very strict.

1) refine the question (perhaps by area, time period, sub-topic, etc.).

2) you should begin with the Gelvin textbook and the Burke/Yaghoubian chapters assigned for the week(listed below). You don’t need to use all of these readings, just those relevant to the topic you want to explore. But in addition to those readings, I would like to you to find two scholarly articles or book chapters on the same subject.

3) The essay should be synthetic in that it brings together the research and arguments of other authors to create a more complete view of the subject of your analysis.

4) All references should be cited according to the Chicago Manual of Style which is used in the discipline of history.

5) Remember that every good essay begins with an introduction that clearly sets out the argument/thesis and explains why it is historically important. Your reader should understand your intent by the end of the first page or the first couple of paragraphs. This is the most important part of an essay, so do spend some time on it. Please underline or italicize your argument/thesis in the final paper.

6) The essay should be 1,250-1,300 words (use the word count function), including footnotes

According to history, some of the modern territories and cultures are a result of the cohesion of different cultural environments. The conquest of different empires and kingdoms in Europe, Middle East, and Asia significantly helped spread different cultures and development in the world economy. For instance, it would be important to note that the imperialism of European Kingdoms in the nineteenth century was highly consequential in spreading development across the world. However, the European kingdoms did not operate in isolation as they were consistently competing for territory with other empires in the world, one of the most notable empires being the Ottoman Empire. Despite having fluctuated in size across centuries, the Ottoman Empire is one of the most recognizable organized forms of governance in history, having survived more than six centuries.
