Short Essay 1

Short Essay 1 Topic: Historians have often characterized ancient
civilizations as either primary or secondary civilizations, or as what I
would call hydraulic or non-hydraulic civilizations. Hydraulic
civilizations are those that have had to learn how to manage and control
the movement of water and in this regard, Mesopotamian, Egyptian,
Indian and Chinese civilizations have been called hydraulic or primary
civilizations. On the other hand, we have Greek and Roman civilization,
which are largely derivative (secondary) civilizations that did not
depend on managing the movement of water. What influences did geography
and environment have on developing civilizations? How might geography
and environment influenced things like society, human thought, politics,
and religious beliefs? This question requires that you take a
comparative approach and consider the Ancient Near East (also called
Western Asia) as well as Egypt, India, China, Greece and Rome.
