Formatted abstract
This volume of essays exalts in diversity without seeking simplistic synthesis, perhaps an inevitable outcome when nine scholars examine ‘a range of moments of contact between Europe and the rest of the world from around 1000 down to around 1750’ (p. 1). The editors do not shy away from their multifarious task, and further diversify the proceedings by pointing to the etymology of the word ‘encounter’, which in the fourteenth century referred to hostile and violent clashes, before its evolution over two centuries to the more neutral sense of meeting. What emerges from these pages is a rich and tangible sense of the diversity of travel undertaken by medieval and Early Modern crusaders, colonizers, diplomats, explorers and missionaries, and an accompanying sense of how race, ethnicity and nationhood were emerging constructs for which little consensus could be found.
