The prospect of global history
James Belich
Oxford University Press
UK Publication Date

The Prospect of Global History takes a new approach to the study of global history, seeking to apply it, rather than advocate it. The volume seeks perspectives on history from East Asian and Islamic sources as well as European ones, and insists on depth in historical analysis. The Prospect of Global History will speak to those interested in medieval and ancient history as well as modern history. Chapters range from historical sociology to economichistory, from medieval to modern times, from European expansion to constitutional history, and from the United States across South Asia to China.

Markus Vink, Journal of Modern History

The Prospect of Global History has much to offer those in the field, and I have no doubt that Osterhammel's chapter alone will be mandatory for all students of global history to read in years to come.
