History of the Fur Trade
I want an essay/summary based on chapter 6 ‘The Fur Trade’ of Eric Wolf’s book ‘Europe and the
people without history’. Of course I don’t want any copy paste of the sentences used in the
original text, but it has to be of a similar degree (not too easy but also definitely not too
difficult) and all important aspects of the text should be included in the essay/summary. Some
extra sources can be used as help, but the essay/summary has to be fully based on that
chapter! The following aspects MUST be included in the essay/summary: > Approximately WHEN was
the area you have read about INCORPORATED into the world economy and HOW DO YOU KNOW? In other
words what features of the area changed during incorporation? > What international divisions
of labour and production process – collections of raw materials, shipping, marketing and
profit (integrated production process) – resulted from incorporation? > Who profited most from
the incorporation of the area you have read about and how, who least, and who profited by
degrees in the middle? > Where were these people located geographically and economically?
Remember, some who profited or lost out may have been states
PS The essay/summary has to be in past tense, just like the original text.
