Description
February 7 , 2014 – Lecture 5 Characteristics of Empires: 1) Dominance 2) Force  3) Exploited – they exist for the benefit of the dominant power There are other forms of organization, such as alliances. Once characteristic of the Syrian  empire, the empire seemed to be God­driven; states before 1000 BC were usually controlled by  the deity. The Syrian tablets show very little concern for discretion. When you look at the Persian  Empire, there is much more concern for how they are ruling. The characteristic of the Persian  Empire (the first empire we have knowledge of) had the rights of the periphery (subject areas)  taken into consideration. For example, the Persian rulers did not impose their religion on their  followers.
