  • The Global Renaissance
    • Abstract: On the flyleaf of his copy of Vitruvius’s work on architecture, Antonio de Mendoza, first viceroy of New Spain, recorded that he “read this book in the city of Mexico” in April 1539.1 At the time, Franciscan professors in nearby Tlatelolco were teaching young Aztec nobles to write like Cicero. Later in the same century, Jesuits presented Akbar the Great with prints by Dürer for Mughal court artists to copy. Within little more than a generation’s span, Matteo Ricci introduced Chinese mandarins to Renaissance rhetoric, philosophy, astronomy, geography, and the art of memory as well as to the Christian message.2 Previous intellectual and artistic impulses had spanned Eurasia, especially in the first millennium ...

  • The Jesuit Heresiological Discourse as an Enlightenment Project in Early
           Modern China
    • Abstract: A little book titled The History of Medicine from Antiquity to the Present (Gujin yishi), written by the late seventeenth-century Chinese doctor Wang Honghan, took up a most unusual task for its genre. Many doctors before Wang’s time had composed such narratives about the history of medicine as a way to establish their scholarly credentials as “learned physicians.” Their narratives often began with the same set of hagiographical tales about legendary healers and teachers of medicine in Chinese high antiquity. A glance at Wang’s table of contents suggests nothing extraordinary. What marked his text off as an outstanding anomaly was his vigorous effort in the text to repudiate those very hagiographical tales ... Read More

  • Japanese Colonialism in Comparative Perspective
    • Abstract: This article examines the economic consequences of Japanese colonialism in Taiwan, Korea, and Manchuria in the years 1910 to 1945 and to compare Japanese policies with those implemented by other European powers, especially in Southeast Asia. In particular it addresses the writings of an influential group of American scholars, several based at Stanford University, who have published widely on Japanese colonial policies over the last fifty years. They contributed to several edited volumes and also authored a number of journal articles examining the economic consequences of Japanese colonialism in Taiwan, Korea, and Manchuria, as well as examining Japan’s informal empire in Asia. These writers were not for the ... Read More

  • Editor's Introduction
    • Abstract: The public reception of Sven Beckert’s Empire of Cotton has been remarkable, to say the least. Published in 2014 in one German and two English editions,1 it has been translated into ten languages so far. The book won the Bancroft Award and the Philip Taft Award, received the Cundill Recognition for Excellence, and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. The New York Times named it one of the ten most important books of 2015. Numerous reviews have been published in the popular press,2 and the author has been lecturing about the book around the world. Nonetheless, “Empire of Cotton is not casual airplane reading. Heavy going at times, it is crowded with many more details and statistics (a few of them repeated) than ... Read More

  • Cotton and the Global Origins of Capitalism
    • Abstract: Global history is one of the most vibrant fields within the discipline of history today, an immensely creative flourishing of the historian’s craft that has produced a wide variety of studies of great insight and power. These works embrace an eclectic diversity of approaches, questions, and empirical foci, testifying to the expansiveness of the discipline of history. One particular way of doing global history has been to write the history of a commodity, with books focusing on such things as sugar, oil, the potato, and cod. Such commodity-focused histories are one powerful way to move toward a history beyond the nation-state, partly because they give empirical specificity to far-flung connections, partly ... Read More

  • Empire of Cotton and the Global Countryside
    • Abstract: Last September, the popular Dutch primetime television program As the World Turns—not to be confused with the U.S. soap—crowned Empire of Cotton as its book of the month.1 The panel concluded that, apart from being persuasive, insightful, and about a subject literally so close to us, the book was remarkably accessible to a wide audience. This laudatio was presented not by a university professor but by a man whose job it is to run a bookshop, where few customers hold a university degree in history. He was nonetheless confident that the book would appeal to a broad audience, something one would not immediately expect. Certainly, the book is well-crafted, meticulously written, and absolutely absorbing, but it ... Read More

  • Cotton, Capitalism, and Coercion: Some Comments on Sven Beckert’s
           Empire of Cotton
    • Abstract: Beckert has written an impressive, highly praised, and highly readable book. Or rather, he has written two closely interconnected books: one on the history of cotton, on which I am not an expert and which I leave to experts to judge,1 and another one, a subtext less systematically presented and documented, on the history of capitalism. My text is not an exhaustive review but rather a set of comments, which are confined mainly to matters related to the nature and history of capitalism and its role in the Great Divergence. I assume the reader is familiar with the book. My comments are partly critical and partly suggestions for further analysis and therefore can easily convey a more negative impression of my ...

  • Historians Debate the Rise of the West by Jonathan Daly (review)
    • Abstract: In this concise volume, intended primarily for undergraduate students taking “world history” or “Western civilization” courses, Jonathan Daly reviews and summarizes, in five succinct chapters of about equal length, the ongoing debates surrounding why the West came to prominence at a particular moment in time. The remarkably brief introductory chapter (eleven pages) provides an overview of earlier scholarship related to this issue, though it could be argued that the sections on Adam Smith, Karl Marx, and Max Weber would have benefited from a more thorough exposition. Why the author opted not to include a more suitable explanation of Hegel’s “complex theory,” or for that matter more than just one paragraph on ... Read More

  • Europe after Empire: Decolonization, Society, and Culture by Elizabeth
           Buettner (review)
    • Abstract: Elizabeth Buettner’s new book, Europe after Empire, is a very welcome addition to the growing literature on decolonization and its discontents. The breadth of this book is distinctive. Buettner’s ambitious study includes the story of imperial collapse and reconfiguration not only for Britain and France (which have already been the subject of much scholarly attention), but also for the Netherlands, Portugal, and Belgium. Buettner sets herself a difficult task in expanding the geographical range of the field. But the integration of the histories of less powerful empires—those that worked on a smaller scale—with their larger, better known counterparts makes for productive comparisons. From the ...

  • Hitler at Home by Despina Stratigakos, and: Stormtrooper Families:
           Homosexuality and Community in the Early Nazi Movement by Andrew
           Wackerfuss (review)
    • Abstract: The Nazi Party was, in many respects, the crystallization of a series of paradoxes, one of which is poignantly captured in the two texts under review—namely, that a political movement that purported to shield the traditional, heterosexual nuclear family was energized by men who eschewed such living arrangements. Andrew Wackerfuss’s Stormtrooper Families and Despina Stratigakos’s Hitler at Home clinically probe the homosocial networks of the Sturmabteiling (Storm Detachment, or SA) and the carefully constructed domestic spaces of Hitler’s home life, deconstructing the ostensible boundaries between the public and private in the Nazi universe. At the same time, these books grapple with self-conceptions and ... Read More

  • Patriarchal Moments: Reading Patriarchal Texts ed. by Cesare Cuttica, Gaby
           Mahlberg, and: Feminist Moments: Reading Feminist Texts ed. by Susan
           Bruce, Katherine Smits (review)
    • Abstract: These two volumes are part of a series, Textual Moments in the History of Political Thought. It is a good idea, and the concept of “moments” is apt. This is especially true when discussing Christine de Pizan’s Book of the City of Ladies, the first entry in Feminist Moments. Pizan’s book was completed in 1405 and then disappeared into oblivion—a “moment” in history. But is the same term, “moment,” applicable when discussing the Judeo-Christian Bible or the Islamic Koran, the first two entries in Patriarchal Moments' If these texts, which have lasted over a millennium, are “moments,” than Pizan’s book is a micro-nano-moment. The two Moments volumes, and presumably the others in the series, are set ... Read More

           Citizens and Soldiers by Nicholas Stargardt (review)
    • Abstract: All these books have much to offer world history. Common themes include Germany’s interaction with other parts of the world through the nineteenth-century imperial era and the subsequent world wars. One central overarching question throughout these books is one that Hannah Arendt raised connecting European colonization overseas with German occupation policies in Eastern Europe, asking if there were parallels. As with the Maxim gun designed for colonial battlefields against “savages,” the Europeans eventually turned the guns on themselves in the First World War, a case of the chickens coming home to roost. Helpful for the debate, consideration of Arendt’s idea about an engagement linking European colonialism ... Read More

           Companies (1700–1800) by Chris Nierstrasz, and: Trade and Empire in
           Early Nineteenth-Century Southeast Asia: Gillian Maclaine and His Business
           Network by G. Roger Knight, and: Money in Asia (1200–1900): Small
           Currencies in Social and Political Contexts ed. by Jane Kate Leonard,
           Ulrich Theobald (review)
    • Abstract: The three works reviewed here, at a first glance, cover vastly different topics. The monograph by Chris Nierstrasz examines the two great East India companies, the Dutch (VOC) and the English (EIC), during the eighteenth century and their trade in coffee as well as cotton cloth. The second work, by Roger Knight, traces the growth of the personal business empire of the Scotsman Gillian Maclaine in the opening decades of the nineteenth century. The third, edited by Jane Leonard and Ulrich Theobald, discusses mediums of exchange and specific sociopolitical settings in which these are used. As the title of the book intimates, its primary focus is on Asia, but the overwhelming degree of attention is on China and ... Read More

  • Exile in Colonial Asia: Kings, Convicts, Commemoration ed. by Ronit Ricci
           (review)
    • Abstract: This collection of ten very diverse essays all relate to the punishment of exile in Asia. Its subtitle, Kings, Convicts, Commemoration indicates that these essays center on one of these three aspects of the general idea of “exile,” all within an Asian context. However, in many ways, the stories they tell are of the individual versus the masses. The collection opens with a very broadly focused essay by Clare Anderson (“The Global History of Exile in Asia, c. 1700–1900”), which provides the context for this multifaceted idea of “exile” in Asia, and (as with all the essays) is followed by a bibliography. In Anderson’s case, however, the reader will find virtually all the most pertinent recent scholarship on ... Read More

  • Circulations in the Global History of Art ed. by Thomas Dacosta Kaufmann,
           Catherine Dossin, Béatrice Joyeux-Prunel (review)
    • Abstract: Historical interest in cultural circulation and exchange has increased in the 2000s. In recent years, this interest in the “globalization” of cultures has also spread to the specialized field of art history, which has seen a proliferation of writings on “world art history,” “global art history,” and the worldwide spread of the discipline of art history itself. In this emerging field of comparative historical studies in the visual arts, the volume Circulations in the Global History of Art stands out with its determined rejection of the nation as the privileged unit of analysis and its cogent emphasis on processes and connections among cultures. As the title suggests, the book’s leading concept is ... Read More

  • The City: A World History by Andrew Lees (review)
    • Abstract: “What defines a city'” is a question that has kept busy many generations of urban historians and sociologists. In his book, Andrew Lees conceives the City as a transcultural phenomenon, which existed throughout human history. In his narration, single cities in different regions and epochs illustrate various stages in urban history. Lees fulfills in this book the hard task of summing up in less than two hundred pages almost six millennia of the world’s urban history. The rise of the City is connected with the introduction of agriculture and husbandry, which allowed human settlement and the production of agricultural surplus. Lees identifies Uruk and Babylon in Mesopotamia as the first major cities ... Read More

           by Anne Gerritsen, Giorgio Riello (review)
    • Abstract: At least since the publication of Harold Cook’s monumental study Matters of Exchange in 2007, histories of science and material exchange have developed into one of the most vibrant fields of global and world historical scholarship. By zooming in on the daily practices of merchants, gardeners, physicians, grocers, and apothecaries near harbors in the Low Countries, Asia, and the Caribbean, Cook illustrated how the exchange and management of spices, exotic plants, and texts tacitly shaped a new experimental philosophy in the early modern period. However, Cook’s study has also shown that writing a nuanced world history of science and material exchange also confronts historians with tremendous challenges. Next to the ... Read More
