Area Studies and the World. World Regions and New Global History


Since the 1980s a new concept of world history in the sense of a »global history« has begun to gain acceptance. Important here is not only the overcoming of a Eurocentric perspective, but also the manifestation of the processes of globalisation and the analyses of the influencer of the driving forces and their effects on specific cultures, social systems and regions.


In the series »Globalgeschichte und Entwicklungspolitik/ Global History and Development Policy« pioneering scholarly studies that integrate the historical issue into the analysis of the current processes of globalisation and development shall be published.


With papers by: Dipesh Chakrabarty, Sebastian Conrad, Angelika Epple, Carter Vaughn Findley, Bernd Hausberger, Thoralf Klein, Patrick Manning, Klaus Mühlhahn, Margit Pernau and Dietmar Rothermund.
