A History of Portuguese Overseas Expansion 1400-1668 provides an accessible survey of how the Portuguese became so influential during this period and how Portuguese settlements were founded in areas as far flung as Asia, Africa and South America. Malyn Newitt examines how the ideas and institutions of a late medieval society were deployed to aid expansion into Africa and the Atlantic islands, as well as how, through rivalry with Castile, this grew into a worldwide commercial enterprise. Finally, he considers how resilient the Portuguese overseas communities were, surviving wars and natural disasters, and fending off attacks by the more heavily armed English and Dutch invaders until well into the 1600s. Including a detailed bibliography and glossary, A History of Portuguese Overseas Expansion 1400-1668 is an invaluable textbook for all those studying this fascinating period of European expansion

From the 14th century onward, political and religious motives led Ethiopian travelers to Mediterranean Europe. For two centuries, their ancient Christian heritage and the myth of a fabled eastern king named Prester John allowed the Ethiopians to engage the continent's secular and religious elites as peers. Meanwhile, back home the Ethiopian nobility came to welcome European visitors and at times even co-opted them by arranging mixed marriages and bestowing land rights. The protagonists of this encounter sought and discovered each other in royal palaces, monasteries, and markets throughout the Mediterranean basin, the Red Sea, and the Indian Ocean littoral, from Lisbon to Jerusalem and from Venice to Goa. Matteo Salvadore's narrative takes the reader on a voyage of reciprocal discovery that climaxed with the Portuguese intervention on the side of the Christian monarchy in the Ethiopian-Adali War. Thereafter, the arrival of the Jesuits at the Horn of Africa turned the mutually beneficial Ethiopian-European encounter into a bitter confrontation over the souls of Ethiopian Christians.

Sie kamen, sahen und eroberten – 600 Jahre lang haben Europäer die Welt erkundet, unterworfen und ausgebeutet. Doch zugleich haben sie zahllose Impulse für die Entstehung unserer heutigen Welt gegeben und empfangen. Denn die europäische Expansion war keine Einbahnstraße, sondern ein jahrhundertelanger Prozess der Interaktionen. In Wolfgang Reinhards monumentalem Werk hat die Vorgeschichte der Globalisierung zu einer einzigartigen Gesamtdarstellung gefunden. Der renommierte Historiker beschreibt von den frühen Anfängen der europäischen Expansion in Antike und Mittelalter bis zu den langwierigen Dekolonisationen des 20. Jahrhunderts einen weltgeschichtlichen Vorgang von gewaltigen zeitlichen und räumlichen Dimensionen. Ob er über die Handelssysteme in Asien berichtet oder über die künstliche Welt der Plantagen mit ihren Sklaven, über ökologische Folgen oder konfliktträchtige politische Hinterlassenschaften der europäischen Expansion, stets ist seine beeindruckend kenntnisreiche Geschichte spannend zu lesen und geprägt von dem Interesse nicht nur an den Europäern, sondern auch an – den Anderen.

A lively and fascinating narrative history about the birth of the modern world. Beginning in the heady days just after the First Crusade, this volume—the third in the series that began with The History of the Ancient World and The History of the Medieval World—chronicles the contradictions of a world in transition. Popes continue to preach crusade, but the hope of a Christian empire comes to a bloody end at the walls of Constantinople. Aristotelian logic and Greek rationality blossom while the Inquisition gathers strength. As kings and emperors continue to insist on their divine rights, ordinary people all over the world seize power: the lingayats of India, the Jacquerie of France, the Red Turbans of China, and the peasants of England. New threats appear, as the Ottomans emerge from a tiny Turkish village and the Mongols ride out of the East to set the world on fire. New currencies are forged, new weapons invented, and world-changing catastrophes alter the landscape: the Little Ice Age and the Great Famine kill millions; the Black Death, millions more. In the chaos of these epoch-making events, our own world begins to take shape. Impressively researched and brilliantly told, The History of the Renaissance World offers not just the names, dates, and facts but the memorable characters who illuminate the years between 1100 and 1453—years that marked a sea change in mankind’s perception of the world.

Facharbeit (Schule) aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich Geschichte - Sonstiges, Note: 14, , Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Computerspiele sind in unserer modernen Gesellschaft zwar weitest-gehend geduldet, dennoch wird ihnen oft ein schlechter Einfluss auf die Intelligenz der Jugend nachgesagt. Umso mehr erstaunte es mich, als ich im Geschichtsunterricht der ersten gymnasialen Jahrgangsstufen mit viel Vorwissen aufwarten konnte, das ich zu einem großen Teil historischen Computerspielen entnommen hatte. So stellte sich mir schnell die Frage, wie viel Wahrheit in einem typi-schen, historischen Computerspiel steckt, eine Frage, auf die ich nun im Rahmen dieser Seminararbeit eine Antwort suchen darf, wobei ich als Untersuchungsobjekt Age of Empires III auswählte.

During the seventeenth century, Holland created the world's most dynamic colonial empire, outcompeting the British and capturing Spanish and Portuguese colonies. Yet, in the Sino-Dutch War--Europe's first war with China--the Dutch met their match in a colorful Chinese warlord named Koxinga. Part samurai, part pirate, he led his generals to victory over the Dutch and captured one of their largest and richest colonies--Taiwan. How did he do it? Examining the strengths and weaknesses of European and Chinese military techniques during the period, Lost Colony provides a balanced new perspective on long-held assumptions about Western power, Chinese might, and the nature of war. It has traditionally been asserted that Europeans of the era possessed more advanced science, technology, and political structures than their Eastern counterparts, but historians have recently contested this view, arguing that many parts of Asia developed on pace with Europe until 1800. While Lost Colony shows that the Dutch did indeed possess a technological edge thanks to the Renaissance fort and the broadside sailing ship, that edge was neutralized by the formidable Chinese military leadership. Thanks to a rich heritage of ancient war wisdom, Koxinga and his generals outfoxed the Dutch at every turn. Exploring a period when the military balance between Europe and China was closer than at any other point in modern history, Lost Colony reassesses an important chapter in world history and offers valuable and surprising lessons for contemporary times.

Abreu offers a startlingly modern analysis of the past, based on the role of the economy, settlement, and the occupation of the interior.

A master of Brazil's ethnographic landscape, he provides detailed sketches of daily life for Brazilians of all stripes. Superbly translated by Arthur A. Brakel and edited by Stuart Schwartz and Fernando Novais, this Brazilian classic has never before available in English. Chapters in Brazil's Colonial History opens Brazil's rich, fascinating past to the general reader, and offers scholars access to a great turning point in historical scholarship.

"Portuguese" Style and Luso-African Identity

In this detailed history of domestic architecture in West Africa, Peter Mark shows how building styles are closely associated with social status and ethnic identity. Mark documents the ways in which local architecture was transformed by long-distance trade and complex social and cultural interactions between local Africans, African traders from the interior, and the Portuguese explorers and traders who settled in the Senegambia region. What came to be known as "Portuguese" style symbolized the wealth and power of Luso-Africans, who identified themselves as "Portuguese" so they could be distinguished from their African neighbors. They were traders, spoke Creole, and practiced Christianity. But what did this mean? Drawing from travelers’ accounts, maps, engravings, paintings, and photographs, Mark argues that both the style of "Portuguese" houses and the identity of those who lived in them were extremely fluid. "Portuguese" Style and Luso-African Identity sheds light on the dynamic relationship between identity formation, social change, and material culture in West Africa.
