  • Naval Warfare: A Global History since 1860 by Jeremy Black (review)
    • Abstract: In Naval Warfare: A Global History since 1860, noted military historian Jeremy Black turns his prodigious analytic gaze to provide a panoramic survey of modern naval warfare starting with the U.S. Civil War and ending today. His stated goals are to provide an "accessible account of modern naval warfare" (p. ix) as well as a "dynamic account of strategy and warfare" (p. ix) from a "global comparative perspective" (p. ix). In these articulated goals Black emphatically succeeds and admirably so. Through a series of nine chronologically oriented chapters of approximately twenty-year scope, Black does provide a dynamic and stimulating exploration of maritime conflict and strategy, examining the intersection of ...

    • Abstract: Why some countries grow rich before others do, is a question that has been discussed almost from the time modern economic growth began in the mid-nineteenth century, "modern" economic growth being a process driven by productivity gains rather than by the accumulation of resources. Standard answers to this question differed according to the emphasis laid upon market-integration, cultural attributes of societies, or political factors, citing Adam Smith, Max Weber, or Karl Marx in the process. The crucial evidence to test these theories came from Europe and was usually speculative about regions outside Europe. There was a broad agreement that Europe possessed efficient markets, entrepreneurial cultures, and ... Read More

  • Luxury in Global Perspective: Objects and Practices, 1600–2000 ed. by
           Bernd-Stefan Grewe and Karin Hofmeester (review)
    • Abstract: Bridging the periods of early modern and modern history, the volume reconsiders the global dimensions of the history of luxury artefacts. In particular, it charts such objects' contributions to the shaping of global connections, to be more precise, of global commodity chains. This approach criticises that traditional research usually relies on notions of commodity flows that are "only accurate from the standpoint of European and North American culture" (p. 7f). Therefore, the editors aim at writing "a decentered, global history of luxury" by taking the agency of non-European protagonists seriously (p. 23). In that regard, the volume has to be considered a path-breaking contribution to a variety of current ... Read More

           Christopher J. Lee (review)
    • Abstract: In 1956, amid debates regarding Kenya's independence, K. D. Travadi claimed: "I, myself am in my 44th year in this country have had my children and my children's children born here in this country and I call myself an African and particularly a Kenyan first and a Kenyan last" (Aiyar, p. 234). Travadi, a Nairobi lawyer and Kenya India Congress member, was born in India, but spent his professional career in Kenya and was invested for political and familial reasons in Kenya's future. And yet neither the colonial government of Kenya nor many "native" Kenyans accepted Travadi's claim that an "Indian" could be "African." In 1967, four years after independence, the state passed Africanization legislation, which restricted ... Read More

Indeed, if the Jonathan Sterne's The Audible Past: Cultural Origins of Sound Reproduction (Duke University Press, 2003) and Emily Thompson's 2004 The Soundscape of Modernity: Architectural Acoustics and the Culture of Listening in America, 1900–1933 (The MIT Press) marked the beginning of academic study at the intersection of sound and science, the trend has been extended by several more scholarly monographs similarly situated, journal special issues, edited volumes, and source readers. Two new works, James G. Mansell's The Age of Noise in Britain: Hearing Modernity and Roland Wittje's The Age of Electroacoustics: Transforming Science and Sound, indicate ... Read More

    • Abstract: Scholars who undertake research on the Indian Ocean must foremost be commended for voyaging beyond the comfort of what are often nationally defined historiographical borders. Writing such histories requires piecing together sources from archives dispersed throughout imperial, state, and private collections and across regions of cultural and linguistic difference and assembling these into a single historical narrative. Dating as early as the second century b.c.e., flows across the South China Sea through the Western Indian Ocean began Indian Ocean history. For centuries thereafter, which ports were dominant around the Indian Ocean littoral shifted. Commerce combined with or escaped regional rulers' ambitions; rulers ... Read More

  • The Ethnographic State: France and the Invention of Moroccan Islam by
           Edmund Burke III (review)
    • Abstract: Over the last three decades, scholars, often inspired by the works of Foucault and Said, have shown a persistent interest in the intersection of knowledge and power in the modern world. At the forefront of this research have been historians of Europe's overseas empires, who have explored processes of gathering, distilling, and ordering of colonial knowledge, and the relationships between this knowledge and colonial conquest. Major studies in the field, such as Bernard Cohn's Colonialism and its Forms of Knowledge (1996), Christopher Bayly's Empire and Information (1997), and Saul Dubow's A Commonwealth of Knowledge (2006), have examined the mechanisms by which ethnographic, cartographic, linguistic, and ecological ...

One of his most remarkable statements was that, at least relative to what had gone before, between the domestication of the horse around 5000 years ago and the voyages of Columbus, 'little of importance happened'.1 In the words of Crosby: 'Indeed, very little happened that was truly new – just more of the same thing […] There are some new developments […] but they are of minor significance compared to what had gone before […] The dominant theme in the Old World is emulation, not innovation'.2 In fact, there are quite some historians who state that it would ...

  • Longing for the Lost Caliphate: A Transregional History by Mona Hassan
           (review)
    • Abstract: The Caliphate is a set of historical Muslim institutions in specific times and places. The Caliphs were the leaders of the community of Muslim believers following the death of the Prophet Muhammad and the title continued to be used by various rulers in the following centuries. The Caliphate is also a symbol of the ideal Islamic society, especially for Sunni Muslims. Mona Hassan presents a broadly conceived discussion of the relationships between these two dimensions as they are viewed in the historical memory of Muslims. The core of her analysis is an examination of how Muslims understood the caliphate in the contexts of its absence – in the thirteenth century, when the Mongols destroyed the Abbasid caliphate of ...

  • Mission as Globalization: Methodists in Southeast Asia at the Turn of the
           Twentieth Century by David W. Scott (review)
    • Abstract: David W. Scott has produced an insightful study that interest scholars in a number of fields. This is a historical work that focuses on early Methodist missions in Southeast Asia; however, it is not a straightforward historical account. Scott brings a fresh perspective to his subject by analyzing the "Malaysia Mission" (as it was known in Methodist sources) from the perspective of globalization, a framework normally applied to later historical periods. He convincingly argues that many of the features of mid to late-twentieth century globalization were already present in late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century Southeast Asian missions. His argument thus offers fresh light on the global history of Methodism and ... Read More

    • Abstract: On the cover of the Jakarta Reporters Club handbook to the 1955 Asia-Africa Conference is an iconic photograph of a rickshaw driver looking up at a large billboard, featuring a map of the 29 participating nations stretching from China to Ghana. Bandung was once a colonial resort town, nestled in the mountainous tea plantations of West Java, and gained notoriety during the Indonesian Revolution, when Indonesians burned down part of their own town in response to the Dutch reoccupation of the city. Over six days in April, however, the modernist hillside bungalows housed not wealthy Dutchmen but the leaders of Asia's largest powers. The city itself was overrun with diplomats, statesmen, journalists, and photographers ... Read More

  • A Missing Peace: The Asia-Pacific Peace Conference in Beijing, 1952 and

    • Abstract: On 6 June 1952, the last day of a planning conference to organize a peace conference in Beijing later that year, a huge mural appeared in the conference hall. It was not Chinese, but Mexican: a monochrome copy of a new painting by the famously radical artist Diego Rivera (1886–1957), entitled Pesadilla de guerra, sueño de paz: The Nightmare of War, and the Dream of Peace. A Mexican mural in China was not out of place, however, in the internationalized space in which it was displayed. Rivera's painting presided over a great oval table around which were arrayed peace delegates from over twenty countries, their placemats adorned with multilingual namecards and national flags, and it looked opposite to the more famous ...

Sjahrir had, for several months, served as Indonesia's first Prime Minister, negotiated the country's independence at the United Nations, and put in place its first constitutional guarantees; but he had been sidelined from power by Sukarno, a political rival since the 1930s. U Ba Swe and U Kyaw Nyein, meanwhile, were powerful ministers in the new Burmese government. Along with Ram Manohar Lohia and Asoka Mehta, who had broken away from the Indian National Congress to ...

  • Where was the Afro in Afro-Asian Solidarity' Africa's 'Bandung Moment'

    • Abstract: In June 1954, the Asian Socialist Conference (ASC) published the first edition of its Anti-Colonial Bureau News Letter. After reporting the recent Bureau meeting in the Burmese hill-station of Kalaw, the news became overwhelmingly African: political crisis in Buganda, a new constitution for Tanganyika, Mau Mau and Kwame Nkrumah's electoral success in Gold Coast. The editor of the News Letter and Joint Secretary of the ASC, working in Rangoon, Burma, was a young West African journalist, James Gilbert Markham.1 His mission: to wrangle the ideological and organizational potency of Asian national liberations and Afro-Asian solidarity towards expedited freedom for Africa and his own flagship country, Gold Coast/Ghana. ...

  • "The People's Bandung": Local Anti-imperialists on an Afro-Asian Stage
    • Abstract: The 1955 intergovernmental Conference of Asian-African Countries at Bandung is widely regarded as an important prelude to the non-aligned movement. It is less well known that eleven days prior to the Bandung Conference, a conference was convened in New Delhi that should be considered its unofficial counterpart. In sharp contrast to Bandung, which was not open to the public, the nongovernmental nature of the Delhi conference enabled thousands of people to attend. Officially known as the Conference of Asian Countries on the Relaxation of International Tension (CRIT), it was heavily influenced by the growing peace movement of the early Cold War years.1 Over the next five years, the Delhi gathering's success in terms ...

Representatives from forty-six countries across Asia and Africa spent a week in discussions, sharing their experiences of colonisation and their aspirations to overcome it. Their closing resolution invoked the Asian-African Conference held two years earlier in Bandung, Indonesia, which they said had 'set the standard' with its principles of self-determination, global equality, and peace.1 Bandung remains preeminent in the lore of Afro-Asianism worldwide, and in historiographies of decolonisation today.

  • Soviet "Afro-Asians" in UNESCO: Reorienting World History
    • Abstract: Narratives of African and Asian unity figured prominently in the agendas of national liberation pursued by decolonizing countries in the first half of the twentieth centuries. As historians have pointed out, across Afro-Asia, anti-colonial elites formulated agendas of modern statehood that shared a remarkable dualism. Analyzing the agenda of the Afro-Asian Peoples' Solidarity Movement (AAPSM) in the early 1960s historians observed a shift from a "universalistic" ideal of African and Asian cultural liberation and modernization towards a more "particularistic" agenda of anti-colonial struggle.1 This they generally regarded as the logical consequence of inter-Asian strife (notably the Indo-Chinese border war of ...

The Congress was described by one delegate as an 'international conference' for 'enlightened and independent thinkers, communist writers, journalists, artists, scientists, doctors and religious divines'.1 With over 400 delegates from more than 70 countries in Asia, Africa and the Americas, the purpose of this august assembly was to raise a rallying cry against imperialism, and more specifically, American imperialism. Its more immediate concern, however, was to deliberate upon ways in which the 'malign' cultural influence of (American) Imperialism could be combatted. The attending delegates made ... Read More

    • Abstract: Wer den Wind sät has received a great deal of attention in Germany. Already on its 24th printing, this pithy volume has been a top-ten best seller for most of the last two years. There is good reason for this. Lüders, the Near East correspondent for the German newspaper Die Zeit, writes in lively, informative, and highly readable prose. His arguments are clear and, though sophisticated, easy to follow. This is not an academic book. Little of the information contained herein is particularly obscure. Few of Lüders' contentions are wholly novel on their own, though they tend to be compelling. The sources that inform the book, moreover, are rarely identified (there are neither footnotes nor a bibliography), though they ... Read More

They can also be related as a simplistic account of war which can minimize its significance and in turn lead to reductionist approaches. The value of considering a number of books is that it can lead to an understanding that we need to consider wars in contexts, and not war in contexts. In doing so, it is also appropriate to avoid any sense of hierarchy in significance and causation. This is particularly so of such varied levels of discussion and analysis as the strategic, operational, tactical, organisational, cultural, social and political. The relationships ... Read More

The master narrative centering on the rise of modern science within Western Europe and its subsequent diffusion around the world is being increasingly effaced as more scholars joined in the search for a polycentric, inclusive framework for studying the "global histories" of science.1 The volume under review is a timely and welcome intervention in this rapidly growing discourse.

  • Reordering the World: Essays on Liberalism and Empire by Duncan Bell
           (review)
    • Abstract: Duncan Bell's new book, comprising of twelve collected essays, investigates the relationship between liberalism and empire in the Nineteenth Century. Bell's most recent offering comes after two decades of very fruitful research by scholars investigating the complex, often counter-intuitive, and contradictory relationship of the ostensibly universal values of individual freedom, rationality, and personal responsibility, with imperialism. Yet, Bell augments his previous work on British political thought in the international sphere, The Idea of Greater Britain, and continues to make important interventions in this evolving historiography.1 Indeed, this volume largely collates the author's previous contributions to the ...

All three books are indebted to the pioneering works of Fred Cooper, Ann Stoler, Mahmood Mamdani and Khaled Fahmy, among others in the field of imperial and colonial history.1 In a groundbreaking work that opened up many of the theoretical questions investigated in these works, historian Fred Cooper argued that Ottomans and other non-European states, "began to act more colonial in the late nineteenth century, trying to impose an imperial civilization along the edges of empires, although constrained by the practical ...

Breaking with the classical interpretation of the birth of the Uyghur Nation in the Soviet ethnic policies of the 1920s, the author explores various historical symbols on which it was constructed, at the crossroad of Chinese, Russian and Ottoman empires, in "the fault line dividing Central Asia" (p. 2). Bringing a story spanning both sides of the Russia–China divide, with an emphasis on transnational and comparative history, the author relies on various types of sources in multiple languages, including rarely seen soviet archives, journals and literary works. Telling a social ... Read More

  • Abolitions as a Global Experience ed. by Hideaki Suzuki (review)
    • Abstract: The seeming disjunction in the title of this book between the plural "abolitions" and a single "global experience" is a calculated reference to the classic epistemological conundrum of world history, the multiplicity of local contexts through which broader, even integrated, historical processes gain momentum. In the nineteenth-century wave of abolishing slavery as a legal status, the impulse originated from the quite local northern Atlantic process of consolidating nominally homogenous modern nation-states, driven by populist dynamics quite particular to Britain and the new United States. The conventional literature seldom emphasizes the uniqueness of this formative nation-state context and treats both legally ... Read More
