Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'this is an important volume that scholars will mine productively for the information most useful to their own lines of inquiry.' (Laura Hostetler, Journal of World History 2013

'This superb collection is to be warmly welcomed for taking a different approach. Most obviously, it provides a clear sense of the basic character of pre-industrial empires The contributors, justly celebrated as experts in their respective fields, write at the top of their form. Anyone wanting to understand the mechanisms of rule in premodern empires, and much more, would do well to start with this volume.' - John Hall, Journal of Interdisciplinary History
