The Prospect of Global History

James Belich (Editor) John Darwin (Editor) Margret Frenz (Editor) Chris Wickham (Editor)

The Prospect of Global History takes a new approach to the study of global history, seeking to apply it, rather than advocate it. The volume seeks perspectives on history from East Asian and Islamic sources as well as European ones, and insists on depth in historical analysis. The Prospect of Global History will speak to those interested in medieval and ancient history as well as modern history. Chapters range from historical sociology to economic history, from medieval to modern times, from European expansion to constitutional history and from the United States across South Asia to China.
