Switzerland Abroad: Historical Contours of a Nation's People Global Presence

Leo Schelbert

  • 2500


After sketching the military and missionary presence of Swiss abroad since 1500, this book features three main participatory types of presence: The first is based on the "Exchange" of goods and skills between two nations mainly in Europe (and today worldwide); the second on "Dominance" as a participation in European colonial and imperial rule in the Middle East, Africa, and Asia; and the third as an involvement in processes of "De-settlement-Resettlement" involving the expulsion or destruction of indigenous peoples and their replacement with Europeans as in North America, parts of South America, Australia, and New Zealand. (349pp. color illus. index. hardcover. SAHS, 2019.)
