There were no enormous plains over which an empire of horsemen could impose its swift domination, nor were there broad and fertile river zones like those around the Ganges, Nile, Tigris and Euphrates, yellow and Yangtze, providing the food for masses of toiling and easily conquered peasants. Europe’s landscape was much more fractured, with mountain ranges and large forests separating the scattered population centers in valleys; and its climate altered considerably from north to south and west to east…. Slide 8: Europe’s differentiated climate led to different products, suitable for exchange; and in time, as market relations were developed, they were transported along the rivers or the pathways which cut through the forest between one area of settlement and the next….Here again geography played a crucial role, for water transport of these goods was so much more economical and Europe possessed so many navigable rivers. More examples of Perspective/Bias: : More examples of Perspective/Bias: Columbus reaching America: Columbus version, verse the native version Reformation: protestors verse Catholics Religions: Muslims, Jews, Christians, Buddhists, Hindus Middle Ages: peasants verse knights Revolutionaries verse those being taken over Countries becoming world powers verse countries victim to Imperialism Citizens from Germany verse citizens from America during the World Wars Western Hemisphere verse Eastern Hemisphere First World Nations verse Third World nations Males verse Females, African verse Italian, etc. We need to think differently about World History : We need to think differently about World History Who wrote most of history? We need to study the “losers”/victims/minorities version We need to remember PERSPECTIVE and BIAS We need to get out of “our little world” “Our” way of doing things is not always right/superior. Keep an open mind to different countries, cultures, and people….think differently about how “things should be”. GLOBALIZATION: The World is Flat by: Thomas Friedman Think Differently About the World : Think Differently About the World 1. What is the population of the World? 2. How many continents are there? 3. How many countries are there? 4. Is the World made up more land or water? 5. Where are most people in the World from? 6. What language do most people speak? 7. What religion are most people in the World? 8. Do you think that most people in the World have enough to eat? 9. Do you think most people in the World are educated? 10. What percentage of people in the World have electricity? 11. What percentage of the World is free? 12. Guess what the population will be in 2050.
