1. The view from Cahokia The Gateway Arch in St. Louis is an appropriate perch from which to begin a contemplation of the history of American Wests. The monument was designed to celebrate the westward expansion of the United States and to place St. Louis at its opening. On a clear day, from the top of this edifice more than six hundred feet up, the view to the west dazzles. The local view Mounds made of packed earth first appeared in and around the confluence of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers around one thousand years ago. Thousands more elevations, mostly

1. Questions about murder and history Here is a true story. In 1301 Guilhem de Rodes hurried down from his Pyrenean village of Tarascon to the town of Pamiers, in the south of France. He was on his way to visit his brother Raimond, who was a monk in the Dominican monastery there. The journey was a good thirty kilometres along the gorge of the river Ariège, and it would take Guilhem at least a day to reach his destination, travelling as he was on foot. But the reason for his trip was urgent: his brother had sent him a

9. Endangered languages The way language lives now In many countries there are speakers of lesser-known languages who live on the rim of two worlds: a small circle of heritage language speakers, and a large, modernizing, monolingual society. By the end of the 21st century, half the languages spoken in the world today may have disappeared. Fewer than 10,000 people speak 52 per cent of languages, and 83 per cent are spoken in single countries only, thereby exposing them to the policies of a single government. One-third of the world’s alphabets are endangered. Many language communities have approached the point

4. Struggles for control It took persistent effort on the part of slave owners and their allies to keep slavery in place, to make people work without pay, and to sustain the arguments that justified the forced labor of other human beings. It required such great effort because enslaved people did not always simply submit to the demands of their owners; many struggled in ways large and small against owners’ plans, orders, and attempts to dominate them. Not every enslaved person resisted, and no one resisted all the time, but from the start—from the slave ships crossing the Atlantic to

2. The pre-Industrial Revolution, 1500–1700 Witney is a small market town 15 miles north-west of Oxford. It is far from northern Britain where the Industrial Revolution unfolded, but it nevertheless experienced many of the same changes. Before looking at national and international patterns, we will see what happened in Witney. It illustrates many themes of both the pre-industrial and industrial revolutions.
