Lugar: Abingdon, Oxfordshire; Año: 2014 vol. 16 p. 351 - 354
For the last five centuries, the geography of the world was devised in a map with five continents swimming in the seas of the earth: Europe - Asia, Africa, Oceania and the Americas. In this map, Europe has a very special position. Modern history developed in and from Europe; Europe was the political, social, economic and cultural structure that dominated the rest of the world, and the strongest reference point for the rest of the world (joined later by the USA). The point is that looking from the distance (from -35º in Buenos Aires to 50º in Brussels), perspectives and views are changing.
