  • Oil Boom: Agriculture, Chemistry, and the Rise of Global Plant Fat
           Industries, ca. 1850–1920
    • Abstract: In an influential 1981 book, Eric Jones argued that the "rise the West" owed a great deal to Europe's ability to exploit "ghost acres" in the Americas.1 European and American imperialism brought new lands and new workers into imperial and global systems, extracting value through an "unequal exchange, which functioned on an ecological as well as an economic level."2 Since Jones' work appeared, scholars have highlighted the ways in which the ecological exploitation of the Americas, Asia, Africa, and the world's ocean regions fueled economic and demographic growth in the global North (defined as western Europe and North America for the purposes of this article). A large and still-growing body of research highlights ... Read More

  • Spectacular Power in the Early Han and Roman Empires
    • Abstract: In l10 b.c.e., Emperor Wu of Han travelled to Mt. Tai, the tallest mountain in his empire, and performed the feng sacrifice, once at its base in front of officials and other spectators, and again, in private, at its summit, accompanied by his coachman. The feng sacrifice, according to ritual specialists, could only be performed at a particularly auspicious time—when the empire was united, a sage ruler in charge, and heavenly omens had been received. Following the feng, the emperor performed its companion sacrifice, the shan.1 According to contemporary wisdom, the sacrifices had been performed only thirteen times, and the last attempt to perform them, approximately one hundred years earlier, was considered by many ...

  • Beyond 'Tribal Breakout': Afghans in the History of Empire, ca.
           1747–1818
    • Abstract: In the desiccated and mountainous borderlands between Iran and India, the uprising of the Hotaki (Ghilzai) tribes against Safavid rule in Qandahar in 1717 set in motion a chain reaction that had profound consequences for life across western, south, and even east Asia. Having toppled and terminated de facto Safavid rule in 1722, Hotaki rule at the centre itself collapsed in 1729.1 Nadir Shah of the Afshar tribe—which was formerly incorporated within the Safavid political coalition—then seized the reigns of the state, subduing the last vestiges of Hotaki power at the frontier in 1738, playing the latter off against their major regional opponents, the Abdali tribes. From Kandahar, Nadir Shah and his new allies marched ... Read More

  • Migration and Mobility in the Modern Age: Refugees, Travelers, and

           Nicole Svobodny, and: Placing Empire: Travel and the Social Imagination in
           Imperial Japan by Kate McDonald (review)
    • Abstract: A common assertion in both of these volumes is that the study of human movement helps to bring historical processes into clearer focus. Traditional historical studies situated human societies and their national peoples as virtually static or in situ, something both of these volumes hope to correct within their respective realm of historical studies, namely Russia and Eastern and Central Europe and Japan. Human movement takes many forms in the modern age of world history and was often in alignment with imperialist ventures, whether in the form of the more permanent movements of people typically characterized as migration, or in the more temporary movements of tourists, travelers, migratory workers, smugglers, and ...

  • A Sea of Debt: Law and Economic Life in the Western Indian Ocean,
           1780–1950 by Fahad Ahmad Bishara (review)
    • Abstract: In a 2007 book review in the Journal of World History of Sugata Bose's A Hundred Horizons: The Indian Ocean in the Age of Global Empire (2006), this author noted that Indian Ocean studies "suffers neglect in comparison to the rich literatures of the Atlantic, Mediterranean, and Pacific" (p. 377). Decidedly, this is no longer the case. Since Bose's landmark book, appearing in tandem with Thomas Metcalf's Imperial Connections: India in the Indian Ocean Arena, 1860–1920 (2007), there has been a proliferation of groundbreaking publications reconceptualizing the Indian Ocean in history as a zone of dense interactions and cosmopolitan cultural productions. There also have appeared many publications that simply append "in ... Read More

  • Histoire mondiale de la France ed. by Patrick Boucheron (review)
    • Abstract: A group of French scholars has offered a vigorous and, judging by the book's library triumph and Alain Finkielkraut's irate reaction to it, an effective and successful rebuttal to those who, in the Hexagon, have been loudly opposing the idea of a multicultural France. Delivering an engaging and eclectic work that splendidly speaks to France's longstanding relations with the world, Patrick Boucheron and his confrères have produced in Histoire mondiale de la France a book that might very well put to rest the recurrent and divisive question of identity in France.Directed by Patrick Boucheron of the Collège de France, Histoire mondiale de la France is the collective effort of over a hundred scholars—most of whom are ...

  • Managing Frontiers in Qing China: The Lifanyuan and Libu Revisited ed. by
           Dittmar Schorkowitz and Chia Ning (review)
    • Abstract: This book offers a stimulating overview of recent studies on Qing dynasty's institutions related to managing frontier issues and non-Han peoples, the Lifanyuan 理藩院 and the Libu 礼部. Since it represents "the first comprehensive study" on Lifanyuan (Di Cosmo, p. viii), it will certainly be warmly welcomed by scholars of the Qing dynasty, but it also offers a World historical comparative perspective, revealing a unique practice of early modern empire building, departing from both Western imperial narratives as well as Chinese political traditions. The book originated from a conference that took place in April 2011 at the Max Planck Institute, and the resulting edited work has been very well achieved. Despite ... Read More

  • Asiatische Revolutionen: Europa und der Aufstieg und Fall asiatischer
           Imperien (1600–1830) / Asian Revolutions: Europe and the Rise and Fall
           of Asian Empires (1600–1830) by Sven Trakulhun (review)
    • Abstract: A book of the magnitude and scope of Sven Trakulhun's Asiatische Revolutionen is only published every few decades. A similar work appeared precisely twenty years ago: Jürgen Osterhammel's Die Entzauberung Asiens.1 After the success of Osterhammel's The Transformation of the World, the Entzauberung was republished first in German (Beck, 2010) and a translation was published by Princeton University last year.2 That two such books can coexist is again best demonstrated by Osterhammel: his 2009 Transformation of the World was published only five years after Chris Bayly's equally ambitious The Birth of the Modern World.3 Just as Bayly and Osterhammel complement each other in their wide-ranging histories of the global ...

  • An African Slaving Port and the Atlantic World: Benguela and its
           Hinterland by Mariana P. Candido, and: The Atlantic Slave Trade from West
           Central Africa, 1780–1867 by Daniel B. Domingues da Silva (review)
    • Abstract: The Atlantic slave trade has been an ever-growing field for at least the last three decades. A sundry number of scholars have stressed the North Atlantic slave traders' role in human trafficking from the seventeenth to the nineteenth century as well as the impact of enslavement and slave exports on African societies. Nevertheless, West Central Africa—namely Kongo and Angola—has drawn less attention than it deserves, given that almost roughly half of the slaves deported through the Atlantic came from that region from the middle of the eighteenth century up to closing of the middle passage.After the seminal works of David Birmingham, Jan Vansina, Beatrix Heintze, John Thornton, and Joseph Miller,1 a new generation of ...

  • Das Meer als Versprechen: Bedeutung und Funktion von Seeherrschaft bei
           Thukydides by Hans Kopp (review)
    • Abstract: Thucydides (ca. 450–390 b.c.), in his History of the Peloponnesian War, written as a "possession for ever," brought forth the famous argument that the rise of Athens and the resulting fear of the Spartans made a conflict between the two city states inevitable. This idea has recently attracted the attention of a wider audience due to Graham Allison's successful book Destined for War: Can America and China Escape Thucydides' Trap' (2017). Since then, interest in Thucydides has spread across the globe, beyond scholars of classics. It is thus timely that the German publishing house Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht has decided to devote an entire monograph series with the title THOUKYDIDEIA, Studies in Thucydides to the most ... Read More

  • Desertion in the Early Modern World: A Comparative History ed. by Matthias
           van Rossum and Jeannette Kamp (review)
    • Abstract: A group of predominantly Dutch scholars has put together a provocative book on the history of desertion, or the act of workers abandoning their work without permission, across the world of 1500–1800. (Whether this world was "early modern" or, as seems more accurate to this reviewer, "late Agrarian," with more similarities to earlier than later times, is open to question, including on the criteria examined in this collection. It was certainly a transitional period, whatever one calls it.)The book has many strengths. Chief among them is the central decision to treat desertion not just as a military/naval phenomenon but as a broader question of labor history. This decision highlights the fact that military and naval ... Read More

  • Global Historical Sociology ed. by Julian Go and George Lawson (review)
    • Abstract: One of this book's great contributions is that it opens up new horizons in historical sociology. So far, research in historical sociology and historical sociology in International Relations has tended to prioritize the state as the unit of analysis, while disregarding, both implicitly and explicitly, connected histories or global dynamics. As a welcome contrast, the contributors to Global Historical Sociology (GHS) problematize this trend under the premise that there is no everlasting and invariable state concept in the historical context. Theoretically and methodologically, they insist that viewing the state and social structures as preconceived underpinnings is indeed ahistorical. Instead, these ... Read More

  • Reformation Thought: An Anthology of Sources transed. by Margaret L. King
           (review)
    • Abstract: This invaluable little anthology delivers exactly what it promises and a little bit more. There was a time when a source collection titled 'Reformation Thought' would have consisted entirely of extracts from the principal published works of the best-known Protestant theologians – and that would not be a bad thing: the Reformation was a revolution of ideas led by scholars, and unless students are willing to engage with those ideas they will not grasp much of what it was all about. So it is pleasing that, amongst Margaret L. King's fifty short extracts, we have five from Martin Luther and ten more from major Protestant thinkers, plus five from Erasmus. The extracts are brief but well-chosen, and will give novices a ... Read More

  • Empires and Bureaucracy in World History: From Late Antiquity to the
           Twentieth Century ed. by Peter Crooks and Timothy H. Parsons (review)
    • Abstract: This volume of eighteen essays, spanning over 450 pages of text, collectively examines the intersection of empire and bureaucracy. Call them what you will: bean-counters, pedants, mustachioed Napoleons in love with their arbitrary authority, officials—"bureaucrats" is not necessarily a neutral term—were necessary for princes, kings, emperors, trading and colonial corporations, and imperial governments to project power and build and maintain their empire. Empires have been with us for millennia, but how did they "rule over different peoples across vast expanses of space and time'" Following the "imperial turn," which has established how much empires have been the rule and nation-states the exception, these essays ...

  • Shadowlands: Memory and History in Post-Soviet Estonia by Meike Wulf
           (review)
    • Abstract: This book examines the ways in which Estonia, in the course of its steady exit from the Soviet orbit sparked by its popular resistance movements in 1989, sought to come to terms with its two periods of occupation, initially by Nazi Germany, and more enduringly by Soviet Russia. The author is interested in the role played by cultural and collective memory in this process, particularly in the first fifteen years after independence. She concentrates her analysis on over forty interviews conducted with "professional historians from Estonia" between 1996 and 2004 (p. 7). She is explicitly interested in generational group memory in Estonia's case, and identifies four distinct generations, which she terms War Generation ... Read More

           Christine M. Philliou, and: The Circassian: A Life of Eşref Bey, Late
           Ottoman Insurgent and Special Agent by Benjamin C. Fortna, and: The Barber
           of Damascus: Nouveau Literacy in the Eighteenth-Century Ottoman Levant by
           Dana Sajdi (review)
    • Abstract: Since the 1990s, there has been a surge of interest in connecting microhistory to world history. Despite the apparent contrast between them, stories of individuals, events, and places are now seen as part and parcel of a much larger history. This trend is termed by some historians as "global microhistory."1 The books under review here are part of this surging interest in many fields of history. The lives of such individuals and groups allow historians to draw connections between their micro and macro worlds. Historians frame the story of their subjects within the story of the Ottoman Empire, which comprised many ethnic, religious, and language groups. Each individual mentioned in these three works reflects this ... Read More

  • Rogue Empires: Contracts and Conmen in Europe's Scramble for Africa by
           Steven Press (review)
    • Abstract: For specialists in African history, imperialism, and European diplomatic history, the establishment of Leopold II of Belgium's Congo Free State and the Berlin Conference of 1884–1885 are familiar topics for teaching as well as research. One might wonder, as I did when I was assigned this review, what new findings could be made treading on such well-mapped terrain. To some extent, Steven Press should be commended for uncovering some interesting connections between imperialism in Southeast Asia and sub-Saharan Africa. The historiographies on late nineteenth century colonialism in Southeast Asia and Africa rarely intersect with each other, though undoubtedly there is much that could be learned by more comparative ...
