Peter N. Stearns makes strong arguments that 1850 was the birth of globalization. This is a long read so I suggest you completely read pages 98-101 to understand Stearns’ basic argument and then skim the rest of the chapter stopping at “The Great Retreat: 1914-1945.” We have not covered World War I or World War II in our course yet. In 2 – 2 1/2 pages, compose your own argument based on Stearns’ research, is 1850 the birth of globalization? Provide at least 4 broad points of evidence and multiple specific examples to support your argument. For instance, Stearns argues that movies and popular culture were transmitted world wide. That would be a broad point piece of evidence and I could further support that with specific examples such as 60-70% of all films shown in Britain prior to WWI came from the United States (page 126).
