World History: Global and Local Interactions by Patrick Manning

This volume provides the fullest report on new world history research to date. In clear and lively prose, thirteen specialists in world history present their findings in three interconnected sections: the politics of empires and nations, the patterns of global migration, and the social struggles revealed through interdisciplinary analysis. Patrick Manning, a leading advocate of world historical analysis, highlights linkages among the book's findings and provides recommendations for institutions and individuals embarking on the study of world history.
