Write a brief essay (suggested length of 2–4 pages) in which you:
A. Identify at least two separate examples of native non-Western cultures that have been impacted by globalization. B. Analyze one of the countries from part A. Be sure to consider the following questions:
1. What caused the influence? (For example, perhaps it resulted from the U.S. government making a conscious effort to improve the agricultural technology of a particular country.)
2. Was it direct or indirect, intentional or unintentional, and positive or negative? (Remember that the ramifications and outcomes of influences are rarely simple. They impact different aspects of culture differently.) Address each area in this question.
3. What was the native, non-Western society’s initial response to the influence?
