What was the nature and extent of the Umayyad Empire? How do you answer this question? What's an empire's nature? HELP PLEASE!

  • ap world history -

    Now it's been a while.. But I'm guessing the nature of an empire is similar to the nature of an animal or human. Like human nature, is our human tendencies. So in a similar fashion, the nature of an empire would be the tendencies of an empire: were they more trade based? More war-oriented? Was the emperor benevolent? Did it have good relations with others? When it conquered did it leave the original ruler in place and not force a culture change? Or was it completely the opposite? What was the culture like?

    I answered your questions with more questions... But hopefully it'll help you

    The questions certainly helped. I figured that's what they were asking, I just wasn't completely sure. And the extent, would be basically where it extended to?

  • ap world history -

    Definitely. If you want to be more in depth, you can also include the cultural extent! But I'm sure that's a little too much

    Thanks so much for the help!

    I'm just giving back ;)
