Globalization, Modernization and World War 1 1) According to Globalization101.org, globalization is defined as “a process of interaction and integration among the people, companies, and governments of different nations, a process driven by international trade and investment and aided by information technology” (pg 1). This definition I believe covers all of the meanings of what globalization is. Therefore, I believe that globalization is a term used to keep third world countries up-to-date with leading first world countries by means of trade, technology, and other key factors. The first major quest for globalization was in 1400s and 1500s when Columbus and DeGama sailed to the East and West Indies in order to find new routes. But in turn, both explorers tried to globalize the East and West Indian culture. The next big part of globalization is the exporting of slaves to the Americas and to Europe from the 1500s to the 1800s. The Europeans enforced their culture upon African slaves. Thus diminishing any history of the African culture that slaves had previously known.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
