This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: The intrepid dreamers of Renaissance Europe were gripped by a desire to conquer the Americas. Indeed, many were convinced that they would be greeted by shores of gold when they arrived at this El Dorado.The New World may have brought with it great hope but, as the author explores, such hopes quickly turned to greed when the unimaginable fertility of the land was discovered. However, the Europeans had not expected to encounter the noble tribes of natives; rather, they had anticipated a land of savages whom they could easily domesticate.The author views this intense desire to reap America as a mirror of ancient myths and also a reflection of the social instability and avaricious urges that bubbled beneath the surface of renaissance Europe.At a time when the problems of imperialism are still felt today, this book offers us a chance to understand the contradictory desires that the country was built on; this fascinating work explores the conflict between the ambitious idealism and commercial incentives that have always characterized and torn America.
