Towards a Global History

Edited by Dr Kaveh Yazdani and Professor Dilip M. Menon

  • A global history of capitalisms which eschews a singular narrative of origins in a particular place and time
  • Moves away from teleologies of the inevitability of capitalism; of the 'great divergence' etc. and suggests a much more conjunctural history
  • Moves away from national perspectives to emphasize the interconnected developments--intellectual and material--across the globe
  • One of the few volumes that takes on a longer time span (from the tenth century CE) and a wider geography from SE Asia to Latin America.
