I urgently need help with my history paper that I have to turn in ASAP. It's about European history and the question is : Q: Throughout the semester we have investigated many varieties of cross-cultural encounter. When authors represented people from formerly unknown cultures and communities, they often illuminated as much about their own societies as those they were ostensibly writing about. In representing “others,” what did Cornelius Tacitus, Usama ibn Munqidh, Alvise da Cadmasto, one or several of the chroniclers of the Spanish conquest of the Americas, Michel de Montaigne, and Daniel Defoe illuminate about their own cultures?
