European colonialism from the 1400s to the 1900s in Africa, Asia, and the Americas is a central theme of this modern world history course.

Discuss the Transatlantic slave trade that lasted from the 1400s through the 1800s. How did this system differ from earlier forms of slavery in history? What was the Middle Passage? And how did the labor of millions of enslaved Africans drive “economic growth” and produce such incredible wealth for some Europeans and Euro-Americans?
