In recent years historians in many different parts of the world have sought to transnationalize and globalize their perspectives on the past. Despite all these efforts to gain new global historical visions, however, the debates surrounding this movement have remained rather provincial in scope. Global History, Globally addresses this lacuna by surveying the state of global history in different world regions. Divided into three distinct but tightly interweaved sections, the book's chapters provide regional surveys of the practice of global history on all continents, review some of the research in four core fields of global history and consider a number of problems that global historians have contended with in their work. The authors hail from various world regions and are themselves leading global historians. Collectively, they provide an unprecedented survey of what today is the most dynamic field in the discipline of history. As one of the first books to systematically discuss the international dimensions of global historical scholarship and address a wealth of questions emanating from them, Global History, Globally is a must-read book for all students and scholars of global history.

An up-to-date survey of the field, the collection will be an excellent resource for both professional historians and general readers. * Canadian Journal of History * Bringing together editorial competence in American, Chinese and European history and authors from all parts of the world, this superb collection inaugurates a new phase in the observation of what global historians are actually doing. It takes stock of past achievements, discusses the challenges of the present, and outlines visions for the future. 'Practice' here includes the politics of global history in a broad range of regional contexts. No previous book has explained it with greater clarity. * Jurgen Osterhammel, Professor of History, University of Konstanz, Germany * Global history is a great rejuvenator of history; it is also in need of a re-set in these times. This book is indispensable for both. It illuminates the ways in which global history revives the study of the past by transcending methodological nationalism. It also gives readers a plenitude of perspectives and problems on what a global past means. Here is an anthology endowed with a unique ability to motivate our ambitions while reminding us of our limits, to dream globally but with humility. * Jeremy Adelman, Henry Charles Lea Professor of History, Princeton University, USA * Expansive and seemingly unstoppable as it is, global history so far has been a remarkably one-sided affair. While it has incorporated ever more "other" pasts, a true dialogue across continents, languages, and national traditions has not yet emerged. This fascinating collection takes an important stride in that direction, demonstrating forcefully that the "world" does look very different depending on from where we look. * Sebastian Conrad, Professor of History, Free University of Berlin, Germany *
