  • Daud Shah and Dar ul-Islam: Transnational Elements of Socio-religious
           Reforms among Muslims in the Madras Presidency
    • Abstract: Colonial British India witnessed a large spurt in the formation of socio-religious reform movements during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Kenneth Jones aptly describes this period as "an age of definition and redefinition initiated by socio-religious movements," and these reform movements sought to change the "social behavior, custom, structure or control" of their target communities.1 The major religious groups in British India—Hindus, Muslims, and Sikhs—underwent changes that sought to address the criticisms of Christian missionaries, enact responses to changing social and economic conditions under British imperialism, and resolve problems in their communities. Any effort to study these movements comes ... Read More

  • Divide to Unite: Ou Jujia, New Guangdong, and Provincial Consciousness in
           1900s China
    • Abstract: In the mid-nineteenth century, the Taiping Rebellion (1850–1864) broke out in Qing China, devastating the south and significantly weakening the dynasty. On the advice of the Han Chinese governors-general who had helped put down the rebellion, the Manchu monarchs implemented self-strengthening reforms to develop China's industrial base and to restore its military capabilities. The most powerful of these governors-general, Zeng Guofan 曾國藩 (1811–1872) and his protégé, Li Hongzhang 李鴻章 (1823–1901), began establishing "private bureaucracies" (mufu 幕府) that bypassed the civil service examinations and inducted non-classically educated technical specialists into officialdom.1 Given the Qing court's traditional distrust of ...

  • Mysterious Ships, Troublesome Loans, and Rumors of War: The Tokugawa
           Arrest of Suetsugu Heizō Shigetomo
    • Abstract: In the winter of 1675, the Lord of Shimabara, Matsudaira Tadafusa was in charge of security for the port city of Nagasaki. Matsudaira received a tip about a ship belonging to the powerful shogunal intendant Suetsugu Heizo Shigetomo (Heizō IV). There was a rumor that the ship had been trading weapons and armor in Southern China, and had stopped in Taiwan for "repairs" on its way back to Japan.1 Matsudaira ordered an inspection of the Suetsugu vessel, which found that the "repairs" consisted of holes drilled above the waterline that led to a secret, false bottom in the ship.2 The investigators also found that the Suetsugu had loaded a cache of swords, armor, and maps underneath the ship's false bottom. Matsudaira ... Read More

  • Taking Children, Ruling Colonies: Child Removal and Colonial Subjugation
           in Australia, Canada, French Indochina, and the United States,
           1870–1950s
    • Abstract: On the night of June 18, 1944, colonial police arrived at the home of Nguyen T.T., the widow of a white French man, and forcibly removed her fourteen-year-old son, Charles L., under orders from a local society for the protection of fatherless mixed-race children. The boy's crime' Reading newspapers and falling asleep in class. French authorities sent him to a "correctional" facility in Tonkin, in present-day northern Vietnam. Distraught, Nguyen T.T. wrote repeatedly to the Governor of Cochinchina, the second-highest ranking political office in the French colony of Indochina, begging him to exercise his authority to return her son to her. In one heartbreaking letter she pleaded: "I would betray my deceased husband ... Read More

  • Ecology and Power in the Age of Empire: Europe and the Transformation of
           the Tropical World by Corey Ross (review)
    • Abstract: This excellent book is an ambitious effort to describe the ways that European imperialism in the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries was the vehicle for the initial impact of industrialization in much of the tropical world. While including events in established colonies such as India, Egypt, and parts of the Caribbean, Ross focuses on colonies acquired or undergoing intensified exploitation in the second half of the nineteenth century. Sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia figure prominently in Ross' analyses. As different regions were colonized by different European metropoles, this book is also a valuable contribution to the comparative study of "high" imperialism and its aftermath.Ross describes an important ...

           and: China's Soviet Dream: Propaganda, Culture, and Popular Imagination by
           Yan Li (review)
    • Abstract: Given the China–Russia rapprochement at present, it is the right time to look back at the honeymoon period between the People's Republic of China (PRC) and the Soviet Union during the 1950s and beyond. Historians, especially those specialized in early PRC years, have long focused on the Soviet–PRC relationship in general and Soviet specialists' contributions to China's industrialization and economic development in particular. Over the years, meanwhile, scholars have produced a wide array of works concerning the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) mobilization of the masses to advance its nation-building agendas. The production of the two books under review—Yu Miin-ling's Shaping the New Man and Yan Li's China's Soviet ... Read More

           (review)
    • Abstract: This concise, useful, and opinionated book is a critical overview of early state formation in Mesopotamia. The author, James Scott, is an influential social scientist known for his work on the contemporary Southeast Asian peasantry and his skepticism towards the benefits of states for ordinary people. Scott's goal is to present an alternative view of the formation and nature of the earliest states. His primary target is a received model of social evolution featuring teleological progression of human societies from foraging through sedentism-farming to state formation with very strong positive valence assigned to the emergence of states—the necessary and natural transition from savagery to civilization. This model ... Read More

    • Abstract: Almost as ironic counterpoints to the global rise of nationalism, protectionism, identitarian movements and accompanying narratives of imperial grandeur and purported ethnic or national purity, historians have in recent years demonstrated that the exact opposite characterised global development in the early modern period. Not just in spite but precisely because of ongoing projects of state, nation and empire building, this was an era of porous boundaries and constant cross-cultural and cross-imperial exchange which provided the very foundations of the survival and growth of European commercial, economic, and imperial expansion.Karwan Fatah-Black's White Lies and Black Markets provides a convincing case study ...

  • The Global Republic: America's Inadvertent Rise to World Power by Frank

           Anderson, and: The History of United States Cultural Diplomacy: 1770 to
           the Present Day by Michael L. Krenn (review)
    • Abstract: In 1898, pursuant to an order from Assistant Secretary of the Navy Theodore Roosevelt to be ready for offensive operations in the Philippines, Admiral George Dewey sailed seven ships into Manila Bay and smashed the Spanish squadron there. Yet the U.S. ability to project its power into islands closer to home was still so limited that Roosevelt's famous volunteer cavalry regiment, the "Rough Riders," had to leave its horses behind in Florida and fight on foot in Cuba. One hundred and twenty years later, the U.S. Navy provocatively sails its warships not only past the Philippines in the increasingly fortified South China Sea but also into the range of Russian missiles off the Black Sea and Baltic Sea. Meanwhile, U.S. ... Read More

  • Slaves of One Master: Globalization and Slavery in Arabia in the Age of
           Empire by Matthew S. Hopper, and: Buying Time: Debt and Mobility in the
           Western Indian Ocean by Thomas F. Mcdow, and: Bondage and the Environment
           in the Indian Ocean World ed. by Gwyn Campbell (review)
    • Abstract: The welcome wave of sophisticated recent works on the western Indian Ocean grapples in a suggestive variety of ways with the fundamental epistemological challenge of world history: eluding the modernism of the historical discipline itself to capture the perceptions, motivations, and strategies of people who lived in other worlds of their own. The three works reviewed here offer possibilities that readers of this journal might find productive for their own research and understanding of the field, but they also illustrate the tenacious traps of the academic world we inhabit. We should avoid the temptation to see the grouping discussed here as linked by the conventional geographical category they share, the Indian ... Read More

           European Culture by Benjamin G. Martin, and: World War II at Sea: A Global
           History by Craig L. Symonds (review)
    • Abstract: All of these books are interesting, but this is the Journal of World History, and I shall review them accordingly, and not with the space or approach that would be relevant were I reviewing for a journal of national or European history. It is, for example, very much the case that the excellent work that continues to come out on German history, on Fascist history, and on aspects of alliance, collaboration and occupation in German-occupied Europe generally fails to draw on parallels elsewhere in the world during this period, and notably so as far as Japanese policy and practice are concerned. Archival issues preclude direct comparisons, but there is much material available in English-language secondary literature and ... Read More
