Culture gives humans a sense of identity. This title examines how cultures around the world mix and change in response to migration and settlement. This fascinating book examines: cultural superiority—suppressing or abusing the culture of an indigenous people; coercion or conversion—forcing another culture to adopt beliefs or a way of life, or when it willingly “converts;” integration—adopting the beliefs and ways of a new homeland; protection—the belief that culture must be “protected” and “preserved;" fusion—the successful mixing of different cultures. Examples from history include: the slave trade and the impact of African culture on North America and then the world; the forcing of Native Americans to adopt European culture; the British Empire and India and the cultural interchange between the two countries; the mixing and spreading of different cuisines, music, art and design styles; the growth of multi-cultural cities.

“This is a wonderful book showing with beautiful photography different areas of the world and their culture from dress to food to rituals and entertainment. Also explains when different cultures migrated to different lands and what they brought with them. Well-written and beautiful photos.” —Central Maine Library District, 10/10
