  • The British Empire and the Suppression of the Slave Trade to Brazil: A
           Global History Analysis
    • Abstract: Melcher Todd was a West Indian planter who had just married when he produced 290 metric tons of brown sugar in 1847. To bring his sugar to market in Great Britain, Todd paid 145 pounds sterling (£) for colonial customs, £1,000 for insurance, £1,150 for freight, and £4,030 in metropolitan customs for a sum total of US$30,000, a fortune at the time. The new husband thought his produce would sell for prices high enough to pay off his expenses. But he was wrong. A year earlier, Great Britain had opened its sugar market for international competition, and the ensuing influx of foreign supplies knocked sugar prices down, leaving Todd with a loss of £720 (US$3,500). Todd lamented: "I have simply labored to pay customs' ... Read More

  • The Rise of Nationalism in a Cosmopolitan Port City: The Foreign
           Communities of Shanghai during the First World War
    • Abstract: Throughout history, the Chinese city of Shanghai has been a microcosm characterized by global phenomena such as urbanization, imperialism, and cosmopolitanism.1 This article uses the case of Shanghai's imperial diasporas before and during WWI to analyze the impact of global conflict in multiethnic port cities. Up to 1914, Shanghai developed into a metropolis inhabited by over a million Chinese and ten thousands of foreigners. This has inspired historians to call early twentieth-century Shanghai "the most cosmopolitan city of China and of the world."2 This assertion usually refers to the relatively peaceful coexistence of Chinese and foreigners in the treaty port. Nevertheless, semicolonialism seems a more ... Read More

  • Present at the Creation: India, the Global Economy, and the Bretton Woods
           Conference*
    • Abstract: Ardeshir Darabshaw Shroff (1899–1965) returned an upset man from the 1944 United Nations Monetary Conference held at Bretton Woods, New Hampshire. The Indian delegation to the Bretton Woods Conference, in which he had participated, failed to make headway in resolving the crucial sterling balances question. Built up over the past five years in exchange for financing Britain's war in Asia, India's sterling balances now amounted to almost £1.3 billion. They had transformed the longstanding Indo-British economic relationship: from perennial debtor, India emerged as one of the largest creditors to its imperial master. This reversal had taken its toll on the Indian wartime economy, which experienced galloping inflation ... Read More

  • Conflict and Commerce in Maritime East Asia: The Zheng Family and the
           Shaping of the Modern World, c. 1620–1720 by Xing Hang (review)
    • Abstract: Xing Hang's Conflict and Commerce in Maritime East Asia is one of the most comprehensive examinations of the Zheng family and their organization at the height of their power. The Zheng family was the head of an organization with a diverse membership that regularly engaged in large-scale commercial, criminal, diplomatic, and military actions. Through these activities, the organization gained the power to assert itself on the global scale in the late Ming and early Qing Dynasties, challenging existing powers ranging from the Qing rulers to the Dutch East India Company, also known as the VOC. Due to its power and influence in a key part of the world during a major period of political and economic expansion, studying ... Read More

  • Forced Migration in the Spanish Pacific World: From Mexico to the
           Philippines, 1765–1811 by Eva Maria Mehl (review)
    • Abstract: Eva Maria Mehl's new book explores the history of the four thousand military recruits who were forcibly transported from Mexico to the Philippines to shore up Spain's precarious Southeast Asian colony in the aftermath of the Seven Years' War and the British invasion of Manila (1762–1764). Pushing beyond the anachronistic geographical borders of "colonial Latin America," Forced Migration in the Spanish Pacific World represents and contributes to the global turn in the historiography of the Spanish empire.1 It is a welcome departure from the themes of silver, silk, and spices that have long dominated trade-centric studies of the Acapulco-Manila galleon.2 Like Tatiana Seijas's recent work on Asian slaves in colonial ...

  • Rage for Order: The British Empire and the Origins of International Law by
           Lauren Benton and Lisa Ford (review)
    • Abstract: "The life of the law is not logic, it is experience." Oliver Wendell Holmes didn't have international law or imperial structures in mind when he wrote this in 1881; but he could have been describing British efforts in the first half of the nineteenth century to make sense of their complex and dynamic global imperium, as Lauren Benton and Lisa Ford show. The British "rage for order" ran headlong into pirates, slave traders, mutineers, and the aspirations and exigencies of a variety of "men-on-the-spot." Many flavors of messiness resulted, defeating not only modernist dreams of a coherently-administered empire and well-organized international/inter-imperial global system, but also recent efforts to claim a solid ...

  • Charlemagne by Johannes Fried (review)
    • Abstract: In 673 densely packed pages, Johannes Fried offers his "visualization of Charlemagne" (p. vii) "to a readership beyond academic circles" (p. x). The clever opening gambit of labeling the book as a "work of fiction" from "his own imagination" (p. vii) effectively insulates Fried from scholarly critiques about the "accuracy" of the details of his portrait. Although I disagree with, or fail to see the evidentiary warrant for, a number of his specific assertions, I will not argue those points here. Instead, I will focus my efforts on conveying how Fried visualizes Charlemagne, and then ask what sort of reader might have an appetite for devoting several weeks of their lives to admiring Charles in Fried's company.The ...

  • War and Conflict in the Early Modern World, 1500–1700 by Brian
           Sandberg (review)
    • Abstract: This is an ambitious book. It aims to study the dynamics of war and conflict across the globe during two hundred years in which contact, encounters, colonisation and exchanges between societies and polities transformed war and military culture; and it endeavours to do this in 362 pages. Even at this cursory level, War and Conflict in the Early Modern World deserves some appreciation for its effort and relative concision. Moreover, as the author outlines in the introduction, this book is not restricted to the 'traditional' history of military operations and diplomacy. It draws upon social and cultural studies as well as violence studies that have been developed by anthropologists, sociologists and historians. This ... Read More

  • The Great Transition: Climate, Disease and Society in the Late-Medieval
           World by Bruce M. S. Campbell (review)
    • Abstract: Bruce Campbell is an emeritus professor of British medieval economic history at Queens University, Belfast, known for detailed inquiries into manorial records. In addition to studies of yields, prices, and other standard fare of agrarian economic history, he has for some time now taken into account English medieval climate and epidemics. In this book, he expands his horizons dramatically, focusing directly on climate changes and bubonic plague as they interacted across the length and breadth of Eurasia. In venturing far beyond his familiar turf into large-scale climate history, Campbell resembles Geoffrey Parker and John Brooke who have recently published sprawling syntheses of global history, for the seventeenth ...

  • A History of Global Health: Interventions into the Lives of Other Peoples
           by Randall Packard (review)
    • Abstract: At the time of writing this review the World Health Organization is in the final stages of appointing a new Director General. The field has been narrowed down from six candidates to three, who will now go forward for selection by the World Health Assembly in May. By the time this review is published the new Director General, the eighth since 1948, will be in position, and the organisation will be preparing to mark its seventieth anniversary. The WHO and its partners around the world can look back on successes such as the landmark eradication of smallpox and improvements in health for millions around the world, but also much unfulfilled promise. The world is still reeling from the mismanagement of the Ebola crisis ... Read More

  • Balkan Wars: Habsburg Croatia, Ottoman Bosnia, and Venetian Dalmatia,
           1499–1617 by James D. Tracy (review)
    • Abstract: "Could a monarchy obliged to respect local prerogatives compete with an empire whose political arrangements offered no lawful obstruction to commands from the top'" (p. 232) This is the question the distinguished historian James D. Tracy seeks to answer in his detailed study of the struggles and conflicts, which occurred on the frontiers between three Early Modern Empires, those of the Habsburgs ruling in the Holy Roman Empire, the Ottomans, and the Venetians.Tracy argues that the scholars of late have "tended to look away from the actual conflict" in their studies of the conflicts between the Habsburgs' and Ottomans' empires (p. 1). In the book under review, he details "a confrontation between two fundamentally ... Read More

  • Sea Rovers, Silver, and Samurai: Maritime East Asia in Global History,
           1550–1700 ed. by Tonio Andrade and Xing Hang (review)
    • Abstract: As it seeks to expand its maritime presence, China is laying claim to sovereignty in the East and South China Sea, an area that comprises hundreds of islets and archipelagos. Yet, China is not the only power to lay claim to territorial control over the region. Japan, Vietnam, and the Philippines, respectively, have also firmly voiced counterclaims to China's assertion. These recent disputes have turned the East Asian Sea into a troubled maritime realm; and, if it is not carefully managed, it could turn part of Asia's maritime regions from thriving trade channels to arenas of sea battles.The present situation is recent and unsettling. Yet, in order to better comprehend the nature of existing controversies and all of ... Read More

  • The Near West: Medieval North Africa, Latin Europe and the Mediterranean
           in the Second Axial Age by Allen James Fromherz (review)
    • Abstract: For Allen Fromherz, the 'Near West', the North-West of Africa, is an integral part of 'Western' culture. Fromherz focuses on what he calls the 'Second Axial Age,' roughly corresponding to the twelfth century, when political upheaval, increased commerce and military and religious confrontations provoked 'a shift towards spiritualism and mysticism all along the great trade routes of the world's twelfth-century commercial revival' (p. 212). While the Maghreb is often excluded from or at best peripheral to narratives of twelfth-century histories of commerce, intellectual exchange and spiritual renewal, Fromherz argues that it is in fact key to understanding these intertwined phenomena. He is particularly interested in ... Read More

  • The Fin-de-Siècle World ed. by Michael Saler (review)
    • Abstract: This reviewer sympathizes with Dr. Saler when he laments that "his short Introduction can only generalize, at the risk of oversimplification, about a few of the overarching features of the" fin-de-siècle (p. 3). In the 761 pages of this book, there are 45 chapters, divided among 8 parts, written by 47 authors, not including the editor. He is a professor of Modern European intellectual and cultural history at the University of California, Davis. There are also 52 figures (paintings, illustrations, photos), and two maps, both relating to colonial possessions in Africa during the "Scramble" for that continent. It is one of the 39 volumes published to date in the Routledge World series.In his introduction, Saler ... Read More

           Molly Greene, and: Plague and Empire in the Early Modern Mediterranean

           the Ottomans: Turkish History in Early Modern England by Anders Ingram
           (review)
    • Abstract: Much has been made recently of the spatial turn in historical scholarship, an avenue of inquiry that builds upon and dialogues with transnational, environmental, and disease history. The Ottoman Empire has not been immune to this historiographical development and, indeed, the spatial turn has opened up alternate horizons and points of entry into the exceedingly complex and fascinating history of the Ottoman imperial project and its reverberations within and upon classical "western" European history. Taking the Ottoman imperial capital of Istanbul as the epicenter of pulsating early-modern geopolitical shock waves, the three books under review here form, in their collectivity, a concurrent and concentric spatial ...

  • The Global Atlantic: 1400–1900 by Christoph Strobel (review)
    • Abstract: This small book attempts to do something very significant to the field of Atlantic History as it has evolved over the last several decades. In many ways, it succeeds in its announced task, but in other ways the book doesn't really live up to its potential to redefine a field and challenge the status quo. Even so, it is an approachable book for students and is immensely readable. Its greatest contributions, however, reside in the field of Atlantic History, rather than in the field(s) of World or Global History.The book, which is organized into four parts, consists of a synthesis as opposed to providing a showcase for original research. There is nothing wrong with this, since we need syntheses to understand where ... Read More

  • Scholars and Sultans in Early Modern Ottoman Empire by Abdurrahman
           Atçil (review)
    • Abstract: There is little doubt that the Mongol conquests fundamentally transformed the order of things in the Eurasian heartland in the thirteenth century and caused great fluctuations in the social structures from the Middle East and Anatolia to the Central Asia and China. The very establishment of the Ottoman Empire and the creation of its bureaucratic structure was indeed an outcome of the post-Mongol realities in Anatolia shaped by the collapse of the Seljuks in mid-thirteenth century due to the Mongol attacks. Following the conquest of Istanbul in 1453, the scholars who found themselves in the Ottoman lands stemmed mainly from the migrations and turn-over caused by the Mongols transformed the Muslim scholars into the ...

  • Once Within Borders: Territories of Power, Wealth, and Belonging since
           1500 by Charles S. Maier (review)
    • Abstract: Charles Maier's new opus on the history of territory in human societies, especially after the so-called "Contact Age" began in 1500,is a very good read. Maier writes well and this helps disentangle a difficult subject, because there are few topics of historical inquiry as complex and vexing as the story of territoriality in the modern world. Maier is not new to the subject. His 2014 book Leviathan 2.0 (also published by Harvard) tackles elements of the subject at hand here, though in different ways, and with different aims. Yet the effect is partially the same, putting forth a "big picture" meditation on how we got to where we are today, both in terms of state-formation and in terms of enclosing those same states ...
