About this book


World histories vary widely in shape, structure, and range in space and time. In Palgrave Advances in World Histories, ten leading world historians examine the many forms of world history writing, offering an accessible, engaging and comprehensive overview of what it is and what world historians do. This work is a valuable introduction to those new to the field, but will also stimulate discussion, debate and reflection.
