520    "Exploration was a central and perhaps defining aspect of 
       the West's encounters with other peoples and lands.  
       Rather than reproduce celebratory narratives of individual
       heroism and national glory, this volume focuses on 
       exploration's instrumental role in shaping a European 
       sense of exceptionalism and its iconic importance in 
       defining the terms of cultural engagement with other 
       peoples. In chapters offering broad geographic range, the 
       contributors address many of the key themes of recent 
       research on exploration, including exploration's 
       contribution to European imperial expansion, Western 
       scientific knowledge, Enlightenment ideas and practices, 
       and metropolitan print culture.  They reassess indigenous 
       peoples' responses upon first contacts with European 
       explorers, their involvement as intermediaries in the 
       operations of expeditions, and the complications that 
       their prior knowledge posed for European claims of 
       discovery.  Underscoring that exploration must be seen as 
       a process of mediation between representation and reality,
       this book provides a fresh and accessible introduction to 
       the ongoing reinterpretation of exploration's role in the 
       making of the modern world"--|cProvided by publisher
