Global Perspectives on Global History: Theories and Approaches in a Connected World by Dominic Sachsenmaier
Publisher: Cambridge University Press | 2011 | ISBN: 0521173124 | 300 pages | PDF (scan) | 19,5 MB
In recent years, historians across the world have become increasingly interested in transnational and global approaches to the past. However, the debates surrounding this new border-crossing movement have remained limited in scope as theoretical exchanges on the tasks, responsibilities and potentials of global history have been largely confined to national or regional academic communities. In this groundbreaking book, Dominic Sachsenmaier sets out to redress this imbalance by offering a series of new perspectives on the global and local flows, sociologies of knowledge and hierarchies that are an intrinsic part of historical practice.
