Topic for your essay
Write an essay of 4-5 pages, typed and double-spaced, that discusses how these sources provide examples of a “big history” approach to the history of empires and of the Americas.
Obviously you will condense this information when given only 4-5 pages. Perhaps you will only give a few sentences to one source, and several paragraphs to another.
For the study of War and Peace and War, summarize in 2-3 paragraphs the examples given by the author for necessary preconditions of empire building throughout history.
From Mann’s 1493, provide examples of economic trade and social exchanges brought about by the European explorations.
From the films, provide short examples from each source of evidence of the “big history” approach to the past.
It is quite an interesting story, the birth and evolution of these Americas – and yes, quite painful. What stands out as most significant to you?
There is no one “correct” answer. What stories did you find most interesting? Why?
Make this paper your POV – point of view. Your interpretation.
