A Companion to World History presents over 30 essays from an international group of historians that both identify continuing areas of contention, disagreement, and divergence in world and global history, and point to directions for further debate.
  • Features a diverse cast of contributors that include established world historians and emerging scholars
  • Explores a wide range of topics and themes, including and the practice of world history, key ideas of world historians, the teaching of world history and how it has drawn upon and challenged "traditional" teaching approaches, and global approaches to writing world history
  • Places an emphasis on non-Anglophone approaches to the topic
  • Considers issues of both scholarship and pedagogy on a transnational, interregional, and world/global scale

Editorial Reviews

"This new volume offers insightful reflections by both leading and emerging world historians on approaches, methodologies, arguments, and pedagogies of a sub-discipline that has continued to be in flux as well as in need of defining itself as a relevant alternative to the traditional national, regional, or chronological fields of inquiry."  (Choice, 1 August 2013) "The focus...on the practicalities of how to do world history probably gives it its edge. Its thirty-three chapters are grouped into sections that address how to set up research projects in world history, how to teach it, how to get jobs in it, how to frame it, and how it is done in various parts of the globe. It is an actual handbook, in other words, as opposed to a sample of exemplary work."  (English Historical Review, 1 February 2014)
"All in all, A Companion to World History is a first-rate and cutting-edge contribution to the field of world history. It also contains a large and up-to-date bibliography. Serious scholars in the field will want to add it to their collection of basic reference books. It also belongs in every research library." (Buchbesprechungen 2016)
