  • S. A. M. Adshead on China, World Institutions, and World History
    • Abstract: Ideally, exact scholarship should be joined to a wide lens, as it was in the work of Joseph Fletcher, but in the last resort the wide question is more important than the narrow answer.In a series of monographs published between 1998 and 2004, S.A.M. Adshead (1932–2009) argued that the proper concern of world history was the study of world institutions.1 Adshead’s early published work was China-focused, devoted to the modernization of its salt administration and to what he called “vice-regal” politics in Sichuan.2 His real interest, however, lay not with China “as an isolated entity but as part of the world,” a theme he pursued first in China in World History (1988). This book went through three editions and has ... Read More

  • From Siam to Greenland: Danish Economic Imperialism at the Turn of the
           Twentieth Century
    • Abstract: The turn to the twentieth century marked a phase when the balance of power of European imperialism became imperiled. As Tony Ballantyne and Antoinette Burton have noted, the consequence was political and economic instability in many regions of the world.1 Natural resource industries and their worldwide connections had been at the center of many conflicts shaping previous developments, including the Boxer Uprising, the Russo-Japanese War, and the South African War. In pursuing formal colonialism and economic imperialism, state and private actors created an unseen farrago of farreaching interests. Securing and proving power through the efficient exploitation of natural resources thus became an entrenched idea in the ... Read More

  • The New Asia of Rash Behari Bose: India, Japan, and the Limits of the
           International, 1912–1945
    • Abstract: On December 23, 1912, a bomb exploded in the heart of British India. Lord Hardinge, the viceroy and governor general of India, had entered Delhi on the back of an elephant in a procession meant to celebrate the transition of India’s capital from Calcutta, while simultaneously showcasing the “inevitableness of a British Raj.”1 Hardinge was nearly killed when the bomb exploded just behind him, killing an attendant and filling the viceroy’s back full of shrapnel. The assassination attempt was condemned by media outlets around the world, even attracting criticism in the Christmas greeting of Pope Pius X.2 Investigation into the attack became the top priority of British intelligence services in India, who, in the ...

  • Liberty or Death: The French Revolution by Peter Mcphee (review)
    • Abstract: Integrating large-scale political history with the lived experience of common French people, Peter McPhee’s Liberty or Death: The French Revolution offers a valuable panorama of France’s Revolutionary decade. Looking beyond the Marxist/Revisionist debates that have long characterized the historiography, McPhee insists on placing changes in political culture in a broader social setting, describing the Revolution as a “process of negotiation and confrontation” (p. xii) leading to terror and dispossession, but also radical hope, fitful democratization, and empowering changes.Having previously written books concerning French rural life during the Revolution, the era’s environmental history, France’s nineteenth-century ...

    • Abstract: Professional historians who are ambitious enough to embark upon a gargantuan and solitary effort of summarizing nearly one thousand years of history are very rare specimens. Yet Jonathan Daly has undertaken such a task. This is by no means an ordinary history book for advanced undergraduate students. The entire work revolves specifically around the issue of answering the conundrum of why the West rose at a particular moment in time. This requires an introductory chapter (twentyseven pages) overviewing innovation in world civilization, breezing through several continents, and summarizing several thousands of years of developments. Daly does not really bother covering Roman or Greek history (or any other ancient ... Read More

           Nationhood by Armin Mattes, and: The Struggle for Democracy: Paradoxes of
           Progress and the Politics of Change by Christopher Meckstroth (review)
    • Abstract: At the beginning of The Struggle for Democracy, Armin Mattes states, “By now it must be admitted that [democracy] has proved its appeal to peoples on every continent and every major cultural and religious tradition on earth” (p. 2). We can hope, then, that historians of democracy will increasingly find themselves thinking about the worldwide context of their subject and that world historians will find it equally hard to avoid thinking about the course of democratic development. In each case the demands made on a scholar are going to be high. The challenge is often going to be, for those interested in world history, breaking away from classic themes and historiographical approaches and moving to a wider ... Read More

  • Aging in World History by David G. Troyansky (review)
    • Abstract: The elderly were apparently never the subject of a topically focused world history, until Aging in World History was published. As David Troyansky states, Western civilization has been the focus of earlier histories about old persons. This 152-page book provides an introduction to the history of aging, as well as a more general consideration of the causes and zeitgeists of historical eras in several regions of the world. Thus, Aging in World History may be useful for introductory survey courses in World History.Unlike some authors of popular books about aging in American history,3 Troyansky does not seek a single thematic explanation for all relevant human behavior. Instead, he offers objective presentations of the ... Read More

    • Abstract: “Despite the continuing popularity of biographies of famous people and books about major wars, history is in crisis,” says Lynn Hunt. And it is “not just one of university budgets.” Can the global turn help? Does it make history more relevant, more useful? Hunt’s answers are hesitantly optimistic, not least because globalization has brought a fresh harvest of questions and concerns that historians might profitably engage. But to do so, they will have to think about their practice differently, to learn the art of collaboration, to develop skills in listening across the divides of cultural, political, and economic history, and to cease thinking of other genres and places as exotica.4One route is to embrace the study ...

  • Wiring the World: The Social and Cultural Creation of Global Telegraph
           Networks by Simone M. Müller (review)
    • Abstract: Simone Müller’s book grapples with important questions: How ought we to study the history of globalization? Why choose a particular technological infrastructure as the object of study? Müller chose the global cable telegraph network because “wiring the world was essential for globalization processes” (p. 229) since it “dematerialized information flows” (p. 119). She also spends some space examining the business of cable telegraphy because “submarine telegraphy was foremost a commercial undertaking” (p. 50). The construction, laying, and operation of the global telegraph network was a technological undertaking and business enterprise of supreme importance during the last third of the nineteenth century. It attracted ... Read More

  • World Philology ed. by Sheldon Pollock, Benjamin A. Elman, and Kevin
           Ku-Ming Chang (review)
    • Abstract: Visiting Egypt as a student in 1987, I learned that archaeology students were able to get free entry to all sites and museums if they collected a pass from the Egyptian Ministry of Culture. My college tutor was reluctant to write for me stating that I was an archaeologist, but he did agree to describe me as a philologist. On presenting his letter at the ministry, I was told that, since I was a philosopher, I was ineligible. “But no, I am described as a philologist,” I protested, with the result that the pass was forthcoming. Uncertainty about the meaning of the word “philology,” but a recognition of its worth, is commonplace in academia as well as in the Egyptian civil service. Often philology is presented as a ...

  • Citizen Sailors: Becoming American in the Age of Revolution by Nathan
           Perl-Rosenthal (review)
    • Abstract: In Citizen Sailors: Becoming American in the Age of Revolution, Nathan Perl-Rosenthal has created a worthy addition to the historiography of the Atlantic world. Amidst those waters, Perl-Rosenthal examines national identity against the backdrop of a dangerous maritime world where individual nationalities and loyalties were undulating. Perl-Rosenthal situates seafarers at the vanguard of this historic transformation and argues, convincingly, that seamen were the agents of a revolution of “being” and led the way in creating and determining a new system of identification—citizenship through paperwork. Perl-Rosenthal explains that “American sailors embraced U.S. nationality, and helped to give it new shape” (p. 15). By ... Read More

           by Peter M. Jones (review)
    • Abstract: Nutrients and ideas are motive. The speed of their motion determines to what extent they impact their surroundings and are themselves transfigured. The books discussed in this review are concerned with specific speeds of transformation, using a key nutrient or ways of thinking to trace social and intellectual alterations at national, regional, and global scales, as well as their identifiable environmental impacts. Individually, they offer significant contributions to their respective subdisciplines and are worthy of attention. Read in connection with each other, they emphasize the nestled relationships knowledge production, market economy, and institutionalization play in the making of the modern world. They are ...

    • Abstract: Mirroring (perhaps) new connections in our own world, there has been a raft of books appearing in the past few years laying out the complicated tableaux of Asian history writ large, across broad segments of both time and space. This intellectual trend has not been limited just to Asia; it is noticeable in various other parts of the “world history” domain as well, in different parts of the globe. But the great breadth of this particular continent (Asia) shows off the new energy toward transnational and indeed even transregional history in high relief. The present review essay looks at seven new books that have made use of this approach, expanding our sense of the Asian past across larger and larger units of ... Read More
