The expansion of Europe since the thirteenth century has had profound in¬fluences on peoples throughout the world. Encircling the globe, the expan¬sion changed men's lives and goals and became one of the decisive movements in the history of mankind.
This series of ten volumes explores the nature and impact of the expan¬sion. It attempts not so much to go over once more the familiar themes of "Gold, Glory, and the Gospel," as to describe, on the basis of new questions and interpretations, what appears to have happened insofar as modern histori¬cal scholarship can determine.
