  • A Local History of Global Capital: Jute and Peasant Life in the Bengal
           Delta by Tariq Omar Ali, and: A Thirst for Empire: How Tea Shaped the
           Modern World by Erika Rappaport (review)
    • Abstract: Both Tariq Omar Ali and Erika Rappaport present ways of integrating the local with the global, which add to the discipline of World History. Ali's book is a local history, which considers the influence of global markets upon a specific location: the jute-growing tracts of the Bengal delta, which today is largely in Bangladesh. Rappaport instead provides a voluminous global history of tea, which considers its production in China and India but focuses mostly on its consumption in Britain and many other regions, including India, South Africa, North America, and Australia. In many ways, the differences and overlap between these two books shows both the benefits and pitfalls to thinking about histories of goods and ... Read More

  • Europe's India: Words, People, Empires, 1500–1800 by Sanjay
           Subrahmanyam, and: India in the American Imaginary, 1780s–1880s ed. by
           Anupama Arora and Rajender Kaur (review)
    • Abstract: The above books remind us of the many ways in which India has been a focus of European and American attention and enterprise during the sixteenth to the nineteenth centuries. These books are based largely on textual (historical and fictional) materials, accounts of direct encounters which became more frequent following the opening of Suez Canal and other technological innovations in transportation means. Both books provide fresh and critical insights into understandings and imaginations of Europeans and Americans of India and Indian culture.A prolific scholar of encounters and interactions between Europe and Asia, Sanjay Subrahmanyam in his recent book, Europe's India, advances our knowledge of social positions ...

  • American Empire: A Global History by A. G. Hopkins, and: The Rise and Fall
           of the British Nation: A Twentieth-Century History by David Edgerton
           (review)
    • Abstract: These two interesting and moderately revisionist books are efforts to undermine the exceptionalism often characteristic of national histories of the two most powerful states of the twentieth century. Both Hopkins and Edgerton attempt to place the United States and Britain, respectively, within broader and somewhat complementary interpretative frameworks. Hopkins' target is the concept that the United States is exceptional in its rise to global power with Edgerton arguing against the belief that Britain was exceptional in its decline. In different and overlapping ways, both Hopkins and Edgerton deal with the relationships between national states and empires, the spread of industrialization, and the impacts of the ... Read More

  • A Political History of the World: Three Thousand Years of War and Peace by
           Jonathan Holslag (review)
    • Abstract: Albert Einstein allegedly stated that 'peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding', whereas Albert Camus was of the opinion that 'peace is the only battle worth waging'. Indeed, it is unlikely that many people would object to these opinions. To the large majority of the world's population, peace is all that is wanted, and justifiably so. Yet, throughout its history, mankind has known more years of war than peace. How is this to be explained' What causes wars to erupt time and time again and why don't peace treaties last long, despite all their good intentions, especially after devastating wars like the First and Second World War'Those and other questions are dealt with superbly by ...

  • Before Copernicus: The Cultures and Contexts of Scientific Learning in the
           Fifteenth Century ed. by Rivka Feldhay and F. Jamil Ragep (review)
    • Abstract: Once your name is on a revolution, you become special—uniquely worthy of attention, while your predecessors fade in importance. This has been the case for Copernicus for a long time. While historians of science have certainly tried to understand and explain his context for the last half-century or so, Before Copernicus represents a new, singular attempt to solve the "Copernicus problem" by focusing completely on the era before him—fifteenth century astronomy and how it was formed.This book is an attempt to reject efforts to find a single explanation for Copernicus, instead assembling a methodologically diverse group of scholars to talk about him in a multicultural and multidisciplinary way. The introduction by ... Read More

    • Abstract: On 31 October 1517—also known as the eve of All Saints' Day—a little-known professor from the backwater city of Wittenberg posted—almost certainly by mail, rather than on the door of the castle church, as would later be written—ninety-five theses against the sale of indulgences. This obscure professor was, of course, Martin Luther and his articles, though inconspicuous at the time, became the catalyst for the Reformation: that sixteenth-century rupture within Western Christianity, which persists and defines this global faith into the present. Of the roughly 2.2 billion Christians alive in the world today, thirty-seven percent belong to churches inspired by Luther and his famous break with the Catholic Church. The ... Read More

  • Economic Conquest of the Pacific: Revisiting the Tacna-Arica Plebiscite of
           1925–1926
    • Abstract: From 1879 until 1883 Chile fought Bolivia and Peru in what would become one of South America's most influential conflicts with repercussions that continue to this day. Economic interests lay at the core of that conflict as the Chilean state battled for control over the important nitrate industry. The war occurred in a period of immense global economic growth and Chile was the best placed of the three to expand and modernize even further. When Peru lost the war, it subsequently surrendered claims to the nitrate-rich regions it held along its southern coast after a series of humiliating losses, including on land and at sea. With the occupation of Lima from 1881 until 1883, Peruvian society was shattered and only ... Read More

  • Igniting Change in Colonial Indonesia: Soemarsono's Contestation of
           Colonial Hegemony in a Global Context
    • Abstract: In February 1913 Raden Soemarsono, a young Javanese public prosecutor, was transferred from the cosmopolitan capital of colonial Indonesia, Batavia (present day Jakarta), to the provincial town of Purwakarta.1 Upon arrival he was shocked to discover that here he was expected to crouch in front of his Dutch and Javanese superiors, sit on the floor in their presence, and after speaking bring his hands together towards his face in a gesture of respect and obedience. For the Western educated Soemarsono these traditional forms of deference, collectively known as hormat, were outdated relics of the past, which he vehemently refused to observe. Instead he took the lead in founding the local branch of the association ... Read More

  • Playing Politics with the Youth: Aga Khan III's Use of Colonial Education
           and the Ismaili Girl Guide Movement in British Colonial Tanganyika,
           1920–1940
    • Abstract: Educate, educate, educate … If by education the myriads of India can be taught that they are guardians and supporters of the Crown, just as are the white citizens of the Empire, then the realization that India and the self-governing dominions stand and fall together, bound by a community of interests and a common cause to maintain, will have come. It is imperative to give Indians the education to fit them for their future role in the British Empire.1This article assesses how Aga Khan III and his representative leaders in British colonial Tanganyika utilized children to shape perceptions of his followers in an attempt to carve out privileges over other colonial subjects. I argue that the acceptance of Guiding and ... Read More

  • Bombs in Beijing and Delhi: The Global Spread of Bomb-Making Technology
           and the Revolutionary Terrorism in Modern China and India
    • Abstract: The dominant historiographical assumption for practitioners writing modern Indian and Chinese histories in the second half of the twentieth century has been of a single, overwhelmingly predominant impact/response or colonial/anti-colonial binary. This sort of oversimplified dichotomy is explicitly expressed in national historical narratives in both countries.For Chinese national history, it is the modern West that firstly defeated and then influenced the Chinese state in almost all aspects. The Chinese, in their turn, had a corresponding response to the Western impact when they sought to safeguard, strengthen, and revive the Chinese nation. In this paradigm, scholars have mostly examined how Western economic ... Read More

  • Putting Words in the Emperor's Mouth: A Genealogy of Colonial Potential in
           the Study of Qing Chinese Diaspora
    • Abstract: On October 9, 1740, soldiers, sailors, and civilians carried out government sanctioned theft, arson, and mass murder on all those seen to be Chinese within the city of Batavia (present-day Jakarta).1 Amid a revolt by disaffected Chinese sugar cultivators in the hinterland of the Dutch colonial capital, the city's integral Chinese residents were massacred as potential traitors. Following several further days of burning, killing, and looting, roughly 8,000 men, women, and children had been killed, and the Chinese community of Batavia was all but destroyed.2Fearing that reports of the massacre would lead to the stoppage of the profitable China trade, or worse, military reprisal from the enormous Qing empire ...

  • Pandora's Box: A History of the First World War by Jörn Leonhard
           (review)
    • Abstract: Perhaps the gravest difficulty with any single volume book on the Great War is taming the war's complexities while still maintaining a degree of nuance and insight that goes beyond the temptation for simplification. Indeed, the war's scale itself makes this task even more unmanageable. How can an author possibly offer a nuanced treatment that takes into consideration a war fought on three continents, not to mention, the political and social realities on the war's many home fronts and the changing dynamics of differing and complex societies under strain' To be comprehensive is an impossible task especially given the wealth of history written about the war's many subfields and distinct niche subjects. No historian ... Read More
