Reveals how the discovery of the Americas changed the direction of the world forever. Details the partnership formed between monarchs and merchants in the quest for colonies, raw materials, silver, and gold. Shows how these alliances brought the middle class new wealth and power and ultimately planted ideas about liberty in the minds of all people. Features excerpts from Milton's masterpiece Paradise Lost to quasi-religious travel tales, such as Robinson Crusoe. Reveals how the literature of this time was filled with speculations about divine purpose and included ideas about the New World and the "noble savages" that lived there. Discusses scientific inquiry and illustrates how the writings of Newton, Locke, and others fueled social change.
