Empires of the Weak: The Real Story of European Expansion and the Creation of the New World
Empires of the Weak: The Real Story of European Expansion and the Creation of the New World3.14 7 5 Scritto da: J.C. Sharman Letto da: John Lee
Europeans were overawed by the mighty Eastern empires of the day, which pioneered key military innovations and were the greatest early modern conquerors. Against the view that the Europeans won for all time, Sharman contends that the imperialism of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries was a relatively transient and anomalous development in world politics that concluded with Western losses in various insurgencies. If the twenty-first century is to be dominated by non-Western powers like China, this represents a return to the norm for the modern era.
