World History: Ideas, Religions, Empires Globality
This volume synthesizes the recent outpouring of works on globalization and world history. Its essays depart from the existing literature by depicting forms of autonomy — individual, local, cultural, state, imperial — that were effaced, challenged, reconfigured, or even brought into being by emerging transcultural systems and empires.
World History: Imperialism, Capitalism
This volume explores at least four parallel grand historical paths that collectively ushered in the historical rupture that we know as globalization and globality: the decline of European and Asian empires, the emergence of the American empire, technological and conceptual innovations that erode communities and local markets, and clusters of key ideas.
