Globalization and Global History (Rethinking Globalizations)
Publisher: Routledge | ISBN: 0415701368 | edition 2006 | PDF | 302 pages | 1,1 mb
This new volume argues that globalization is not a new and exotic phenomenon. Instead it emphasizes that globalization is something that has been with us as long as there have been people who are both interdependent and aware of that fact.
Contemporary concerns about globalization are hard to avoid. Growing interdependence benefits some and marginalizes others. History is often described from a local perspective, making events seem particularistic and disconnected, rather than being enmeshed in a much larger network of interdependent events. Studying globalization from the vantage point of long-term global history permits theoretical and empirical investigation allowing the contributors to this volume to assess the extent of ongoing transformations and to compare them to earlier iterations. With this historical advantage, the extent of ongoing changes - which previously appeared unprecedented - can be contrasted to similar episodes in the past.
This interdisciplinary volume includes chapters written by historians, sociologists and political scientists. It will appeal to anyone interested in globalization and its origins.
