Europe observed : multiple gazes in early modern encounters

"This interdisciplinary volume of essays by eminent scholars engages with the issue of how Europe and Europeans were perceived by observers from various parts of the world during the Early Modern period. It seeks to redress the asymmetry in scholarship whereby European views of its "others" are highlighted at the expense of a near-total silence about the reverse scenario."--Jacket
