From the Publisher"A short book on a big subject ... A useful volume with which to introduce students to theories and particular authors as they come to make their own assessment of 'deep forces'."
"An outstanding introduction to the problems and possibilities of global history. Professor Crossley has fearlessly negotiated her way through a vast body of literature, full of contradictions and conundrums, and emerged with brilliant heuristic strategies for achieving the impossible."
Richard J. Smith, Rice University
"In learned and lucid prose, this slim volume conveys the great debates and documentary advances through which global history became a major new field of study. Pamela Kyle Crossley traces the evolution of four interpretive approaches and reaches an astute conclusion on 'what global history is'. This book will enable a wide readership to join productively in the discussion on global change."
Patrick Manning, University of Pittsburgh
