This book is a study of the interaction of the Western societies of Europe and America with others around the world in the past two centuries--the age of European empire. Through a variety of case studies, it considers the European threat and the non-Western response, but the focus is on the ways in which people in Asia, African, and Indian America have tried to adapt their ways of life to the overwhelming European power of the period.

About the Author:

Philip D. Curtin is Herbert Baxter Adams Professor Emeritus, at Johns Hopkins University. His books include The Atlantic Slave Trade: a Census and Cross Cultural Trade in World History.

Review:

"Philips Curtin is one of the ablest, most prolific storytellers of our time. He has woven a number of these tapestries, often bringing together in elegant fashion many important and long-neglected threads (African history, the social consequences of migration, the impact of disease on the unfolding of empire) with themes and images more familiar from other, grander but less careful renderings of our portrait." The Boston Review

"Philip D. Curtin's new book is a fascinating contribution to the debate...The book is well-written; the case studies are carefully selected; complex development and events are expounded with great ease and elegance; and they show how enormously erudite and experienced a historian Curtin is." The International History Review

This book is a study of the interaction of the Western societies of Europe and America with others around the world in the past two centuries - the age of European empire. It deals with the European threat and the non-Western response, but the focus is on the ways in which people in Asia, Africa, and Indian America have tried to adapt their ways of life to the overwhelming European power that existed in this period.
