Overview

Increased interdependence and interconnection among peoples and societies is a fact of life. The New Global History is a critical inquiry into the process of globalization, viewed both historically and holistically. Bruce Mazlish argues that globalization is the result of the interplay of many factors, not merely something that the West has imposed on the rest of the world.

Cutting across disciplinary boundaries, The New Global History offers a fresh, overarching view, which emphasizes that we are now in a global epoch. In this context, the book considers such factors as multinational corporations and organizations, as well as the Cold War. It points to a change in consciousness where morality and humanity are brought to the forefront. This book helps us to place our everyday experience of globalization in the context of scholarly knowledge. The New Global History represents an invaluable blueprint for critical developments in this increasingly relevant field of history.
