"An outstanding introduction to the problems and possibilitiesof global history. Professor Crossley has fearlessly negotiated herway through a vast body of literature, full of contradictions andconundrums, and emerged with brilliant heuristic strategies forachieving the impossible."
Richard J. Smith, Rice University
