Recensioner i media

PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION A very useful tool for world history courses, undergraduate and graduate, as well as offering new concepts for scholars still locked in rigid territorial or national studies... The composition in this concise book is clear and topics are interestingly presented, while the source references make it useful for classroom research projects... A helpful account of the principles and organization of trade in world history, written from a global perspective. -- Mary Watrous-Schlesinger World History Connected PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION The best easily readable overview of the Eurocentric vs. World History debate yet. It should become a standard supplement in the college world history market. -- Dennis O. Flynn, University of the Pacific PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION This is a concise and thought-provoking treatment of some major themes in world history: state-building, industrialization, environmental change, and the transformation of material life. The treatment of global inequality as a phenomenon in its own right?not just as a residue of more 'development' having occurred in some places than others?gives the book an important additional dimension. And as a single-authored work, it has a consistent and engaging voice that is hardto find in standard textbooks. -- Kenneth L. Pomeranz, University of Chicago PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION An absorbing, crisp, and compact account of how the modern world got to be the way it is. This is the most accessible and comprehensive book yet written that takes into account the recent departures in world history scholarship. Marks sees the world as a whole, and paints a clear and compelling panorama of the transformations that changed history between 1400 and 1900. -- John R. McNeill, Georgetown University PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION Splendid, fresh, forceful, and efficient. Marks has a clear focus on the Eurocentrism of most of the textbooks on world history and he has developed an effective, solidly grounded strategy to counter the problem. The ideas are challenging, and the prose is readable and engaging. Ideal for introductory surveys of world history. -- Edward L. Farmer, University of Minnesota By far the best of the current world history books on the market. Its main strengths lie in its non-Eurocentric viewpoint, its clear narrative, and its brevity. I would (and have) unreservedly recommended the book to colleagues teaching in the field, as well as to others seeking a quick introduction to the history of the world. -- Sarah Kovner, University of Florida PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION Terrific! It's far and away the best of its type I've found in over thirty years of teaching. It's clear, succinct, and yet wonderfully comprehensive. It brings together all the current thinking in world history in about as nice a package as can be imagined. -- Paul Solon, Macalester College PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION I am delighted and excited by this book-it provides such an excellent overview of what world history is all about. The economy of the writing, the great balance the book displays in juggling an enormous agenda, and the elucidation of concepts are superb. -- Ewa K. Bacon, Lewis University Praise for the first edition Marks convincingly discredits the standard Eurocentric narrative of mainstream historians, replacing it with a balanced story that places Asia at the centre prior to the 1800s and Europe (then, America) at the centre thereafter. [The author uses] a cogent, accessible style grounded in key historical concepts such as contingency, conjuncture, and accident. -- James L. Huffman Pacific Affairs Praise for the first edition A very useful tool for world history courses, undergraduate and graduate, as well as offering new concepts for scholars still locked in rigid territorial or national studies... The composition in this concise book is clear and topics are interestingly presented, while the source references make it useful for classroom research projects... A
