Format: Paperback
The book gives an overview of a selection of first meetings between Europeans and other cultures. It has several thorough chapters on (e.g.) the Aztecs, the Tahitians and the Japanese, and more episodic chapters on many more. Several chapters on native Americans may have special interest to North American readers. While containing many fascinating tales, it does not, however, reveal any systematic approach. It is also rather superficial and disappointingly ethnocentric in tone in many places. The potential of drawing on the many 'case studies' in the book to extract some broader insight is not utilized. Hence, its analytical aspects are weak, to the point of being non-existent, and its usefulness for graduate students and researchers accordingly rather limited.

Book was in great condition. Used it for class and it had some minor highlighting. Great service and a great use of money.
