Summary

Takes an encounters approach to studying the modern world. Cross-Cultural Encounters in Modern World History explores cultural contact as an agent of change. It takes an encounters approach to world history since 1500, rather than a political one, to reveal different perspectives and experiences as well as key patterns and transformations. The text focuses on first encounters that suggest long-term developments. Because of the complexities of these encounters, the author takes a user-friendly approach to keep the text accessible to students with varying backgrounds in history. Learning Goals Upon completing this book readers will be able to: Understand the dynamics of cultural contact and exchange as agents of historical change View cultural encounters as more than a political struggle between dominant and subordinate people See the impact of first encounters and longer-term, macro-historical encounters Note:MySearchLab does not come automatically packaged with this text.
