Carson Fellow Donald Worster beschreibt, wie wichtig die Ressourcen der Neuen Welt für das westliche Europa sind. Im Fokus stehen dabei das 17. Und 18. Jahrhundert. Er zeigt auch auf, wie neue Ressourcen die Europäer in ihrer Vorstellung und ihren Denkprozessen über die Neue Welt beeinflusst haben, sei es Kleidung oder Nahrung, die sich mitverändert haben. Donald Worster ist ein amerikanischer Umwelthistoriker und seit 1989 Professor der amerikanischen Geschichte an der Universität von Kansas.

uh department 1 8 years that
these resources take century reiterated at the 1st few decades the only thing is coming back from the New World to Europe is gold gold and silver they have a big impact on prices and commodities in Europe but I'm more concerned about the effect on people's imagination and how do you prove this I believe actually cooperatives said his vision of the cosmos wasn't Phillips but of this is to use is I think almost every boy and girl who was reading and know anything would grow up now thinking about the World differently by their parents and grandparents that these are not things that are easy to grow eventually the Natural Resources will begin to affect Europeans and anyway search fish stocks that they can now into direct many kinds of Phillips turnaround and it in Europe did changes nutrition means changes People's eyes 2 other kinds of natural resources like would a number of forces to refer to close the car for producing textiles and clothing sure becomes a huge part of the European . and then press most importantly of all somebody millions Europeans we've Europe to go to those who were able to make calls for themselves as a huge shift in population what these people find us where they can grow food crops and create a new life for themselves and send money back home change the whole dynamics of your on March as well as those of recitals services across unfolds over centuries and is hard to make a simple qualitative assessment what does a fax and I think just what mentioned suggests that it was huge it almost impossible to imagine any other historians generally tended to ignore is now everybody but have tended to ignore the
power stations in the world to do so
