About this Unit
The encounter between Europe in Asia, propelled by European imperialism, is one of the great events of modern history. The unit ranges widely over Asia and considers issues of contact, perception, and interaction between Asian and European cultures and economies over a period of 500 years. It begins with the origins of Portuguese expansion overseas but there is particular emphasis on the so-called new imperialism of the period after about 1880 and the nationalist and other resistance movements that developed in Asia in response. Case studies will be made of two Asian countries.
