Perspectives on the Global Past

Contemporary globalization requires today’s historians to develop new perspectives and approaches for the construction of national and regional histories and to increase their awareness and understanding of the wider world. World history encompasses these changes in a particularly meaningful way, and this series is an effort to extend the field in new directions. Perspectives on the Global Past welcomes a variety of analytical approaches and the methods and insights of different disciplines. Books may focus on specific cultural groups and regions or range comparatively worldwide in analysis of large-scale processes, cross-cultural encounters, and global themes.
