Europeans in the World is a primary-source reader that focuses on the relations between European civilization and the rest of the world. It covers chronologically, in two volumes, the period from antiquity to the late twentieth century. Excerpts from written documents and visual images provide multiple perspectives on the ways in which Europeans interacted with people and civilizations from other parts of the world. The texts presented here examine politics, gender, religion, and ethnicity. The readings include not only such standard accounts as Travels of Marco Polo and J. A. Hobson's Imperialism, but also accounts by missionaries such as William of Rubruck (The Mongol Mission) and Matteo Ricci (Journals), unusual European travelers such as Mary Kingsley (Travels in West Africa), and by colonial subjects such as Mohandas K. Gandhi (Hind Swaraj).Armstrong, Megan C. is the author of 'Europeans in the World Sources on Cultural Contact from 1650 to the Present' with ISBN 9780130912602 and ISBN 0130912603.
