Description: These twenty-three stories examine moments in history when two cultures, previously unknown to each other, first came into contact. Focusing on individuals caught by chance in pivotal times and places, Wilson explores the ways in which seemingly small decisions made during the initial "contact period" between two cultures have had a huge impact on the course of history. From the 1950 England-West Indies cricket match to EuroDisney's reintroduction of traditional folk tales to Europe, the effects of these contact periods are still very much with us. Little-known events with large consequences and remarkable characters fill these interesting, informative, and sometimes surprising essays.
