The Transformation of the World: A Global History of the Nineteenth Century: A Global History of the Nineteenth Century by Jü Osterhammel

A comprehensive examination of the nineteenth century, The Transformation of the World offers a panoramic portrait of a world in flux. J?rgen Osterhammel, a scholar who has been called the Braudel of the nineteenth century, moves beyond conventional Eurocentric and chronological accounts of the era to present a sophisticated global history of breathtaking magnitude and towering erudition. From New York to New Delhi, from Latin American revolutions to the Taiping Rebellion, Osterhammel examines myriad powerful and diverse forces that facilitated global change and spearheaded advancement. In the context of increased interconnectivity across vast terrain and ocean, he provocatively evaluates the changing relationship between humans and nature, the importance of cities, and movements that propelled the emergence of new nations.

An indispensable resource, The Transformation of the World offers a fresh perspective on the emergence of global modernity.
