Recently, for various reasons, cultures around the world have tended to become more inward looking and aggressive in defending their socio-cultural domain. However, throughout history, many civilizations have established extensive and long-term cultural ties with different cultural groups; such interactive networks having in turn activated the acculturation, syncretism and transculturation phenomena. From past to present, we know that cultures endeavor to protect themselves and endure through actuated language, religion, nationality, and even war. Despite ideological schisms that emerged between civilizations from time to time, our hunger for cultural encounters and coexistence shines through. We also witness cultural assets more mobile then ideologies across the boundaries as it can be more often seen in the art and architectural examples. This book helps us to better understand how encounters with other cultures are reflected in our artistic productions and behaviors, especially those that emerged as a response to cultural confrontations.
