Colonialism in Asia: A Critical Look!
Cartoons, text, questions, and activities encourage students to link the present with the past, to look at colonialism from the perspective of the colonized, and to see how the global economy perpetuates the trade structures begun during the colonial era. After exploring colonialism in the past, early contacts by Europeans with other cultures, the take over of Asia, and the building blocks of colonialism, the impact of past and present colonialism is highlighted. The next section presented the difficulties on the one hand, of changing the old colonial patterns in former colonies and the pressure to maintain those patterns, on the other. The last section provides activities to coincide with the various chapters and a simulation game designed to illustrate how the colonial patterns persist in world trade. A list of 12 audio-visual and print resources provides further information. Alternative questions related to the text and a map of the case study countries supplement the chapters. (CK)
