This unique book brings to life key episodes of cultural contact in world history, from the beginnings of civilization to the present. Through a combination of vivid case studies and imaginative colour maps, award-winning history professor Peter Stearns shows how we can better understand world history by examining what happens when culture meets culture. New contacts can lead to assimilation, rejection, or, most often, a merging of elements from both cultures.
Stearns focuses on fourteen important historical examples of intercultural exchange from around the globe. Paperback , pages. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up.
