The societies that defined what historians dubbed the classical era was starting

The societies that defined what historians dubbed the classical era was starting to decline by 500 C.E. due to the strains of internal power struggles and external invasions. In the wake of their collapse, the inhabitants of these regions discovered a need to re-establish political and social order, which gave rise to the prominent empires of the post-classical era. While some would re-institute a strong centralized authority, others would form regional kingdoms that lacked centralization, yet managed to thrive. Compare and contrast three (3) of the following:
the Byzantine Empire
the Islamic Empire
the Sui and Tang dynasties (consider as one entity)
the regional kingdoms of India
western Europe
What social and political factors allowed for empires to flourish in some regions, but not the others?
I attacted files from “Traditions and Encounters A global perspective on the past” textbook to pull information and citations from.
