Sample text

They had been supplying Europe with most of its gold for hundreds of years through indirect trade across the desert. West Africa’s political history had been marked by the rise and decline of a series of large inland states. The most recent of these, the empire of Mali, was already in decline by 1450. As the Portuguese advanced past the Sahara, their commerce began to pull trade away from the desert caravans, which further weakened Mali and other interior states. By 1550, the empire had fallen apart.

As early as 1515, African and Asian trade was providing two-thirds of Portugal’s state revenues. Beyond assuring its continued access to spices, Portugal made little effort to govern its holdings, and thus its eastern empire never became colonies of settlement. In all of their Asian holdings, the Portuguese remained heavily outnumbered by native peoples. Only in the Western Hemisphere—in Brazil, which was discovered accidentally by Pedro Álvares Cabral in 1500 when he was blown off course while trying to round the Cape of Good Hope—had settlement become a major goal by the late 16th century.

Estimates vary greatly, but according to the more moderate ones, at The Emergence of Complex Societies in the Americas • 19 least 50 million people were living in the Western Hemisphere by 1492—and perhaps as many as 70 million, or one-seventh of the world’s population. High estimates exceed 100 million. The Valley of Mexico in 1500 was one of the most densely inhabited regions on Earth. Despite their large populations, even the most complex societies in the Americas remained Stone Age cultures in their basic technology.
