European Intruders and Changes in Behaviour and Customs in Africa, America and Asia Before 1800 Hardback
Edited by Murdo J. MacLeod
Part of the An Expanding World: The European Impact on World History, 1450 to 1800 series
European intrusions had many impacts on invaded peoples, but less attention has often been paid to changes brought about by the encounter in everyday life and behaviour, both for the Europeans and the other cultures.
What changed in diet, dress, agriculture, warfare and use of domesticated animals, for example ?
To what degree were attitudes, and thus behaviours affected ?
How did changes in the use of types of firearm reorder power structures, indeed lead to the rise and fall of competing local states ?
Even the design and planning of houses and cities were affected.
This volume looks at such changes in the early centuries of European expansion.
