Editorial Reviews

Mediterranean Historical Review - Svetla Ianeva
With its complex approach to the problems under study and its innovative interpretations, this collection represents an important stimulus.
History: Reviews of New Books
The volume is a major contribution to the growing field of comparative history... Modernity and Culture, although focused on the Middle East and South Asia, will be of broad interest to students and teachers of world history for its explicit content and the stimulation it provides toward fresh conceptions and presentations of two major world regions in a global context.

— Frank F. Conlon

School of Oriental & African Studies
This book can be regarded as a landmark achievement in expanding the scope of historical studies... It will provide a most valuable starting point for a new type of comparative studies.
