  • Introduction: Crossing Companies
    • Abstract: Much of early modern transcontinental and global connections were forged not by states but by a range of agents that navigated between public and private, not least of which was the chartered joint-stock company. From the fifteenth century onward, European chartered companies facilitated diplomatic, colonial, and of course commercial expansion and connections, first within Europe and then across the Mediterranean, Atlantic, and Indian Ocean worlds.1 Crucial motors of what C. A. Bayly has termed “proto-globalization,”2 such companies were fueled by their capacity to marshal both financial and political capital on great scales. These so-called “first modern multinationals” played a pivotal role not only in “the ... Read More

  • Cross-Imperial Trade in Disguise: Overlooked Trade Interactions between
           the Dutch and the Danish in the Atlantic Trade during the Seventeenth
           Century
    • Abstract: In January 1647, a ship called the Prince of Denmark, sailing under the Danish flag, appeared on the Gold Coast in West Africa. In doing so, it immediately caught the attention of the officials of the Dutch West India Company (hereafter: WIC), who were stationed at the WIC headquarters, Fort Elmina.1 For the WIC, the appearance of a rival vessel created a sense of unease. Over the past decades, the WIC had successfully challenged the Portuguese position on the Gold Coast, and from the 1640s, the WIC had become the strongest European power in the region.2 Thus, the arrival of new competitors was the last thing the WIC wanted. Nonetheless, this would turn out to be no isolated incident, but rather the beginning of a ... Read More

  • Between Companies: The Arbitration of 1654 and the Evolution of Corporate
           Strategy in the East Indies Trade
    • Abstract: Historians have long thought of the early modern period as one in which European states flourished, extending lucrative and brutal colonial empires across the Atlantic and Indian Ocean Worlds. By the mid-seventeenth century, the narrative goes, familiar ideas of state sovereignty began to bloom in Europe, and the “modern,” “Westphalian” system of interstate relations, with its formalized summits, treaties, and supremacy over economy and politics, increasingly began to govern Europe.1 Historians and political scientists have questioned this narrative, examining the role, for example, that international thought and foreign policy played in state and empire formation,2 or rethinking the very definition and value of ...

  • Prussia all at Sea' The Emden-based East India Companies and the
           Challenges of Transnational Enterprise in the Eighteenth Century
    • Abstract: Popular and scholarly interest in the East India Companies never waned. However, in recent years with the financial crisis, tax evasion scandals, questions about corporate responsibility, attacks on globalization from both the political left and right, and the emergence of new historiographies of global capitalism, research into these institutions has gained new currency. As joint-stock companies whose shares were held by a broad cross-section of the population, the East India Companies have fascinated business historians and the wider public who viewed them as “the first modern multinational companies.”1 Others have stressed the role these corporations played as propellers of empire, colonialism, and slavery ...

  • Keeping It in the Family: The Swedish East India Company and the Irvine
           Family, 1731–1770
    • Abstract: In the summer of 1757, Charles Irvine, a Scottish-born former supercargo of the Swedish East India Company (SEIC), paid 8,000 dollars copper money (daler kopparmynt) to have his nephew Thomas Irvine naturalized as a Swedish subject.1 Charles Irvine thought the price was high, but since he was promised a quick and discreet processing of the matter he went ahead.2 World politics triggered the move; the outbreak of the Seven Years’ War (1756–1763) and Sweden’s neutral position in many of the arising conflicts opened up new opportunities for Swedish merchants. Their wares could be declared “neutral property,” and consequently they became cheaper to insure— something Thomas Irvine gain from as he was about to take over ... Read More

  • Scandinavian Trade in Canton and “Borrowed Bengal Money”: The Global
           Role of Minor European Companies Trading in Asia, 1760–1786
    • Abstract: “The new Company would be ruined by the present fall of exchange if their whole stock in China was not borrowed Bengal Money as it really is.”1 With these words Jonas Malm Eriksson in Gothenburg concluded letter to his business partner Charles Irvine in Aberdeen. Malm Eriksson was an accountant of the Swedish East India Company (SEIC), but he also was a correspondent of the foreign shareholders and former employees of the Swedish Company. Charles Irvine of Scotland was one of the most prominent of such former employees.2 But how could “borrowed Bengal Money” save the Swedish venture in China from a ruin caused by a fall in the exchange rate in Sweden' To make sense of Eriksson’s conclusion more is needed on the ...

           1000–1800 CE ed. by Patrick Manning and Abigail Owen, and: Global
           Transformations in the Life Sciences, 1945–1980 ed. by Patrick Manning
           and Mat Savelli (review)
    • Abstract: These two books, along with the previously published Global Scientific Practice in an Age of Revolutions, 1750–1850, round out an impressive array of studies that were originally presented at three major conferences hosted by the World History Center at the University of Pittsburgh following its establishment in 2008 as a “center for research, institutional development, and teaching in world history.”1 As indicated by the titles of the three volumes, each conference aimed to bring together scholars from various subfields, areas of geographical and cultural expertise, and differing methodological approaches, in order to explore and interact within an overlapping zone of contact between a broadly defined ...

  • War and its Causes by Jeremy Black (review)
    • Abstract: Jeremy Black once again returns to a perennial favorite of his—the causes of war—and once again he provides an insightful examination of what “war” really “is.” War and its Causes lives up to its billing as the study provides a fascinating exploration of the institution of war by one of its most prolific and dedicated scholars. Black examines “war” broadly in its political, cultural, and technological contexts, thereby providing interesting and important insights into historical and contemporary use of force both by states and by nonstate actors. Based on this historical and contemporary review, Black then offers well-informed and cogent predictions (and in some instances, sensibly, no predictions at all) about ... Read More

  • Epidemics: Hate and Compassion from the Plague of Athens to AIDS by Samuel
           K. Cohn, Jr. (review)
    • Abstract: Samuel K. Cohn, Jr.’s latest book, Epidemics: Hate and Compassion from the Plague of Athens to AIDS, is a masterful discussion of a topic that has come into renewed focus in the wake of the coronavirus, namely the link between disease and xenophobic behavior. Overall, Cohn’s approach to the topic is overwhelmingly empirical rather than theoretical. True, Cohn presents several theories about the relationship between disease and violence, most notably the generally held-belief that disease outbreaks invariably provoke violence against the outsider “other,” and Margaret Humphrey’s more specific and nuanced thesis linking violence to previously unknown, highly deadly, and untreatable infections. However, Cohn smothers ... Read More

  • The Frigid Golden Age: Climate Change, the Little Ice Age, and the Dutch
           Republic, 1560–1720 by Dagomar Degroot (review)
    • Abstract: “Earth’s climate is a fantastically complex jigsaw puzzle, and every part contributes to the whole” (p. 26). In his book “The Frigid Golden Age,” Dagomar Degroot, associate professor of environmental history at Georgetown University, offers a detailed analysis of the relations between the period called the “Little Ice Age” and the rise of the Dutch Republic. Degroot is one of the co-founders of the Climate History Network, an organization of scholars who study past climate changes. His book starts with the long-term focus of previous scholarship on the Low Countries and offers an overview of the current state of research.The volume is subdivided in three parts with the keywords commerce, conflict, and culture. ...

  • Translating Nature: Cross-Cultural Histories of Early Modern Science ed.
           by Jaime Marroquín Arredondo and Ralph Bauer (review)
    • Abstract: As part of University of Pennsylvania Press’s venerable series on The Early Modern Americas, Jaime Marroquín Arredondo and Ralph Bauer have organized a thoughtfully conceived, engaging, and important volume on scientific knowledge in the early modern world. They deftly bring together a selection of new case-studies and new methodological approaches which offer a carefully balanced critique and path forward for historians of science, the environment, and empire. Taken together, Translating Nature is a reminder of what collected volumes could and should be, and will be a welcome addition to world historical scholarship. Translating Nature arrives at an opportune historiographical moment, and the editors aim to ... Read More

  • American Baroque: Pearls and the Nature of Empire, 1492–1700 by
           Molly A. Warsh (review)
    • Abstract: In American Baroque, Molly Warsh offers an illuminating exploration of the use, trade, and extraction of pearls during the early modern period. The book has an impressive global reach. While focused on the role of pearls in the Iberian Atlantic world, the book extends beyond this framework to consider pearl-fishing and pearl-trading by the Portuguese and English East India Companies as well as river pearl fishing in Scotland and Sweden. Warsh provides a valuable original contribution to the growing literature on the global lives of things, one that will appeal to scholars interested in cultural, environmental, and imperial history, and the way in which commodity trades defined interactions between diverse peoples ...

  • Amboina, 1623: Fear and Conspiracy at the Edge of Empire by Adam Clulow
           (review)
    • Abstract: In March 1623, Dutch officials executed twenty-one people on the Spice Island of Ambon, including ten Englishmen and nine men from Japan. They accused the victims of plotting to overthrow Dutch rule, but when some refugees from Ambon returned to London, they told a different story. They said the Dutch made up false accusations as a pretext for removing English competition and described ruthless torture and brutal imprisonment. The details enflamed an English public already suspicious of Dutch expansion, and through the following decades, both sides—British and Dutch—blamed the other, holding hearings, submitting complaints, publishing pamphlets, demanding compensation.The British probably had the better ...

  • The News at the Ends of the Earth: The Print Culture of Polar Exploration
           by Hester Blum (review)
    • Abstract: The history of the polar regions is a relatively marginal field within world history. As geographically remote, sparsely occupied spaces, the Arctic and Antarctica are easily neglected when scholars seek to examine the past on a global scale. Yet there is dynamic research in this subfield that makes clear that the polar regions have never existed in isolation and should be understood as deeply bound into global movements of people, ideas, and resources. Much of the most exciting research in this area—such as Elizabeth Leane’s Antarctica in Fiction: Imaginative Narratives of the Far South (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2012) and Francis Spufford’s I May Be Some Time: Ice and the English Imagination (New ...

  • Beauty in the Age of Empire: Japan, Egypt, and the Global History of
           Aesthetic Education by Raja Adal (review)
    • Abstract: The publication of this ambitious book on beauty and nationalism is a welcome event. Raja Adal, an assistant professor at the University of Pittsburgh, with a graduate education from Japan and the United States, has analyzed the primary compulsory education in both Japan and Egypt from the late nineteenth century to the early twentieth century. Given Adal’s unique academic background and mastery of both the Japanese and Arabic languages, this book is focused on the transformation of Japan’s and Egypt’s aesthetic education, specifically in music, drawing, and writing education.In the field of aesthetic education, there has been a dearth of comparative research on Japan and Egypt in a global context. This valuable ... Read More

  • Roving Revolutionaries: Armenians and the Connected Revolutions in the
           Russian, Iranian, and Ottoman Worlds by Houri Berberian (review)
    • Abstract: The early twentieth century was a pivotal time in Russian, Ottoman, and Persian history because of the emergence of constitutional movements, mass politics, and numerous political parties. Using the Armenians as a prism for understanding the transnational influences of these movements, historian Houri Berberian analyzes three revolutions in Imperial Russia in 1905–1907, nearby Qajar Persia in 1906, and the Ottoman Empire in 1908, all of which were motivated by a propensity for constitutionalism and reforms.Berberian does not examine these revolutions in isolation. Instead, she applies a transnational, or “connected histories” approach which, she argues “goes beyond an examination of the similarities and ... Read More

  • Lost Histories: Recovering the Lives of Japan’s Colonial Peoples by
           Kirsten L. Ziomek (review)
    • Abstract: This engaging study of a little understood aspect of world history— the life-stories and aspirations of peoples and persons displayed at International Expositions and World’s Fairs—is a welcome addition to the growing body of scholarship that reconstructs silenced histories, often at the level of individual biographies, to debunk received wisdom about empire as a global formation. Lost Histories successfully challenges the notion that so-called “human zoos” at mega-events such as the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition primarily functioned to disseminate social Darwinist imaginaries for mass audiences. Rather, Ziomek argues, these human displays were interactive sites for multidirectional exchanges that often ... Read More

  • The Global History of Organic Farming by Gregory A. Barton (review)
    • Abstract: Gregory Barton has accomplished a difficult task in squeezing an origin story of the global organic farming movement into just over two-hundred pages. His account first locates organic agriculture’s intellectual genealogy before tracing its spread across the Anglo-British world and Japan. Where most histories position modern organic farming as a branch of the consumer environmentalism of the 1970s, Barton identifies it as “the core of a middle stage of the environmental movement” (p. 2)—a trunk connecting conservation to environmentalism. The Global History of Organic Farming makes this argument by pushing the movement’s chronology back into the first half of the twentieth century. What Barton finds there is rather ... Read More

  • Footprints of War: Militarized Landscapes in Vietnam by David Biggs
           (review)
    • Abstract: Following up on the prize-winning Quagmire: Nation-Building and Nature in the Mekong Delta (University of Washington Press, 2011), David Biggs’s Footprints of War sustains the lofty expectations that we have come to anticipate from him. Shifting from the Mekong Delta to central Vietnam, especially the region around the city of Huê, Biggs explores how layers of militarized landscapes have shaped the nation’s history from the early modern period through the present. The book grew out of an applied environmental history project in which Biggs used American archival sources to assist the Vietnamese government in locating chemical hotspots resulting from U.S. troops’ storage and deployment of chemicals, including ...

  • Coda: Crossing Companies, Theories of Agency and Early Modern European
           Empire
    • Abstract: Spain, Portugal, the Dutch Republic, England, France, Sweden, and Denmark all sought and acquired empires in what is conventionally, in European history, called the early modern period. The study of these empires and other states and state-like entities in their orbits has exploded in recent decades. Some of the questions asked may not be new – they were first posed by observers in seventeenth - and eighteenth-century Europe and were later canvassed by twentieth-century scholars all over the globe. But they have been taken up anew and taken in exciting new directions by recent scholarship, as part of a larger trend that includes work on non-European early modern empires, including the Ottoman empire in the Eastern ...
